GREENVILLE – In honor of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.), the Greenville Police Department enjoyed a lunch compliments of the Oakley Place.
Sandy Baker, the Oakley Place Community Relations Manager, delivered the food Tuesday to the station to simply say “thank you” to all of the officers who serve the community.
“They protect our community and put their lives on the line everyday…so this is the least we could do to show them how much we appreciated it,” Baker said.
“I just want to say thank you to the Oakley Place for doing this…means a lot,” replied Greenville Police Chief Steve Strick.
National Law Enforcement Day is held on Jan. 9 of each year and calls on our nation’s citizens to action in support of law enforcement. Those citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given to law enforcement are encouraged to take time this day to show their support.
