National Law Enforcement
January 9th, 2015
Time: 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Location: Lakeland Police Department
The National Fraternal Order of Police has partnered with C.O.P.S. and law enforcement associations across America on a National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.) scheduled for January 9th, 2015.
In light of recent negativity directed toward law enforcement nationally, there is a need to show law enforcement officers that our citizens recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service to us all.
The Lakeland Police Department is a proud partner and supporter of the first National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, which will be held on January 9th, 2015! We are encouraging citizens to participate by coming to the Lakeland Police Department between 5:30 p.m. and 6:30 pm this Friday to stand and wave in front of the police department.
We are calling on our community; those citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given to law enforcement to show their support. You can be creative and make a poster or use one of our LPD Support paddles to display. Our citizens can show their support in several other ways such as:
· See a police officer? Thank a police officer
· Wear blue clothing in support of law enforcement
· Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency
· Share a positive story about a positive law enforcement experience on social media
· Ask children in your community to write letters in support of law enforcement
(deliver/mail to LPD Station at 219 N. Massachusetts Ave, 33801)
· Participate in Project Blue Light. Proudly display your blue porch light in support of law enforcement.
