Across the country on January 9th each year, citizens take the lead to show support on National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Law Enforcement Officers have chosen a profession that puts their life on the line every day for their communities and deserve to be thanked. Here are just 5 ideas to show your support of local law enforcement personnel…
A simple note of thanks can go a long way! Have your kids draw pictures and write a simple note of thanks. Get your neighbors, your church or your kids school involved… there’s nothing quite like opening a box of THANK YOU’s from complete strangers!
Who doesn’t love an unexpected treat? Drop off your favorite cookies, donuts or snacks to your local police department. And remember, in times like these, a home made goody (as thoughtful as it is) may not be accepted. Stick to your local bakeries, donut shops or pre-packaged foods.
Cover A Meal
Cover a meal of an officer at a local restaurant or drive thru. And while the idea of this is great, actually catching one while you’re out and about may be harder than it seems. So grab some gift cards at your favorite lunch spot and drop them off at your local precinct.
Support A Family
The families of officers often get over looked and should be thanked for their sacrifice as well. Drop off balloons, a meal, a thank you card, a gift card, or a special gift to tell them you’re thinking of them. It’ll go a long way!
Thin Blue Line
If you prefer to buy from a company that backs the blue… check out Thin Blue Line USA.

Thank you to all men and women of law enforcement. We support you and recognize your daily sacrifices and brave acts not just on #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay but every day of the year! Thank You.
