Every single day, our police officers serve our communities and our country. Not a day passes that they don’t go out there to protect us from the dangers of the day to day living. Showing our appreciation to them is a simple way to say, “thank you for your service”. Here are ideas to show our appreciation to the police officers.
1. Buy them a meal
What’s a meal compared to the lives they risk to protect us? Buying a police officer a meal or two when we see them will surely go a long way in making them feel that we appreciate them and that we thank them for everything they do for us.
2. Wear ‘em blue
The color blue represents authority, trust, and loyalty, and that’s what our police officers are. But more than those, that blue uniform represents the sacrifices that they make, day in and day out. Give them a blue jersey. Let them wear blue even when they are not in uniform.
3. Say thank you
When was the last time you ever said thank you to a police officer? If you just did, well done! Many of our police officers don’t always get the recognition they so deserve. When you see a police officer or officers, say thank you. Those are simple words that will stay in their heart for a long time.
4. Be a law-abiding citizen
This is perhaps the best way for us to show our appreciation to the police officers. By being law-abiding citizens, we make their jobs a lot easier. Following simple laws, such as traffic regulations, and city ordinances, would not only make us better citizens but, more importantly, it will help the police officers implement the law better .
