Show your gratitude

Saturday is National Tell A Police Officer “Thank You” Day. Citizens are encouraged to take a moment out of their day to show appreciation for their local law enforcement officers through small acts of gratitude — or by simply saying “thank you.”

Our local police officers are our neighbors, our families, our friends and our heroes. They are here every day to serve our communities.

Our police officers are the first responders to answer our calls for help, whether it is a simple fender-bender or a tragic shooting. On most days, their job is a very difficult one and we tend to take these dedicated men and women for granted.

This is a great opportunity for local businesses and people in our area to show their appreciation for police working hard to keep us all safe. Just taking a moment to say “thank you” to an officer can go a long way to show just how much they are appreciated.

Schools can participate by having students make banners or send letters of thanks to their school officers. Businesses are also urged to participate by donating a free cup of coffee or breakfast, or by supporting their local police department's K-9 fund.

If your business has a sign available, please be sure to use it on Saturday to tell all of our local police officers “thank you!”
