This coming Saturday, 21 September 2013, is Thank a Police Officer Day. We’re asking everyone in our community, and even those who follow this website from afar, to write a note of thanks to a police officer. Then…
Submit Your Message Online
You may not even know the officer’s name. Simply share a positive experience or memory that you have about a law enforcement officer and submit it using our online contact form or via email Please do this PRIOR to September 21.
On September 21, we’ll publish all your stories on our website and share it with local law enforcement as a message of thanks, appreciation, and encouragement.
Earlier this year, we announced and promoted National Police Week. National Police Week was established in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy as a week-long national time of memorial and observation of respect, appreciation, and gratitude for those serving in law enforcement.
Thank a Police Officer Day was established in 2012 by The Whole Truth founders Andrew M. Hale & Associates. The campaign of gratitude is one of the ways that the law firm has established itself as a national marketing force for creating a positive image of police officers. In just one year, Thank a Police Officer Day has grown into a national grass-roots movement.

Here’s an inspiring response that someone made to this post:
“For every post I do post about bad police, I do know there is probably one hundred or more good things they’ve done that nobody knows about. And these bad things are tragic! But, I have relatives and friends who are police! They are all good people! And it’s sad, but, in our present society, they are much needed!”
