As part of National Police Week, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, along with Kansas City backup QBs Chad Henne and Chase Litton, visited the Kansas City Regional Police Academy on Tuesday, Mahomes saying that it is good to support police “because they support us in every single way.”

“The things that the police does[sic] for our community on a day-to-day basis and don’t get recognized for it, I mean, it’s good to come out and support them because they support us in every single way,” Patrick Mahomes said, as reported by The Kansas City Star.

According to The Kansas City Star, “The police showed the quarterbacks a range of tactics and tools used to do their jobs, including bulletproof vests, sniper rifles and a robot able to dismantle bombs. All three also got to drive police cruisers around a track; later, they took turns controlling the bomb squad’s robot.”

Former President John F. Kennedy, in 1962, “designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week,” according to PoliceWeek.org. “Currently, tens of thousands of law enforcement officers from around the world converge on Washington, DC to participate in a number of planned events which honor those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice.”
