MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange began his second term in office by asking inaugural ceremony audience members to go thank a police officer for what they do.
Strange praised law enforcement officers in a speech following his swearing-in ceremony Monday on the steps of the Alabama Capitol.
The attorney general said they are called peace officers because they want peace and they keep the peace. He thanked law enforcement officers for their work and urged audience members to go do so as well.
Former Alabama Attorney General Bill Pryor administered the oath of office to Strange. Pryor is now a judge on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
