“Thank you for all you do consistently putting the safety of the nation ahead of your own, see that sort of thing is tremendous to us,” says Pensacola Police Captain Steve Davis.
Davis is reading the thank you notes pouring in from people who appreciate the men and women in blue.
This, after so many attacks against law enforcement across the country has happened, each note handwritten, some with bible verses.
“More of the same from a family here, haven’t I commanded you to be strong and courageous, do not be afraid, or discouraged,” says Captain Davis.
The encouragement has come in several forms.
“We’ve been receiving cards, texts, and lots and lots of baked goods, lot of doughnuts,” says Davis.
Davis also says these gestures help him and his colleagues continue to protect and serve.
“Any one person can go off the rails and commit these horrendous acts,” says Davis.
On social media, more thank yous; this time it’s the Pensacola Police Department and Escambia County Sheriff’s Office showing their appreciation for the community support they’ve received.
Earlier today, Sheriff David Morgan even took to social media to say thank you.
“The response from the citizens of Escambia County has been nothing short of awesome and wonderful,” says Morgan. “We thank you for stopping our deputies on the street and telling them what a fine job they are doing, placing their lives in danger and protecting all of us in our homes and businesses.”
