Burr Pays Tribute to Two of North Carolina’s Finest During National Police Week

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  During National Police Week, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) made the following statement on the deaths of two North Carolinian police officers who were killed in the line of duty during 2014:

“It’s with great sadness that I commend Sergeant Jeffrey Wayne Greene of Union County and Officer Alexander Edward Thalmann of New Bern. Their service to us was too short. These brave men gave their lives in service to their communities and the state of North Carolina. As we honor law enforcement this week, I’d like to pay tribute to them and thank them and their families for their sacrifice. We owe them the greatest debt.”
