National 'Thank You' day for police officers
Saturday, September 16, 2017 is National 'Thank You' day for police officers. Citizens are encouraged to take a moment out of their day to show appreciation for their local officers.
The inaugural "Tell A Police Officer 'Thank You' Day" took place on the third Saturday of September in 2012. The initiative started by the Whole Truth Project, an organization with a mission to promote a pro-police message.
On this day, the community is encourage to participate by choosing one or more of the options listed:
• Send a card of support to your local police department or state agency.
• Share a story about a positive police officer experience on social media.
• Ask children in your community to write letters in support of officers.

Most importantly, if you see a police officer, thank a police officer.
