VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Fifteen dozen donuts and cinnamon rolls were delivered to the Valdosta Police Department Friday morning, in honor of Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
Valdosta Municipal Court staff made the delivery. Municipal Court Judge Vernita Bender said her husband is in law enforcement so she understands how important it is to thank law enforcement for what they do.
"I appreciate the sacrifices that you all make for your families and your communities," said Bender. "And, [I want] to let you know that what you do matters and there are so many people in the community who always have so many positive things to say about you all."
Thursday, Valdosta's mayor read a proclamation at the police department, declaring Friday, January 9th, 2015 as Law Enforcement Appreciation Day in Valdosta.
