Businesses in Crisp County are painting the town Blue to show support for law enforcers.
Blue bows hang on these businesses and street signs in Cordele to show support for law enforcers.
"They do a wonderful job,” said Renee Fraser, Co-owner of Mike Fraser’s Auto Repair and Wrecker Service. “The Cordele Police Department, the Crisp County Sheriff's Office, and the Georgia State Patrol that we have here."
Mike Fraser's Auto Repair and Wrecker Service is just one of many businesses to show their appreciation. Fraser says she's watched several deputies grow up and become law enforcers.
"It's very rewarding to see them grow up and become Deputies and protect us,” said Fraser.
Businesses purchased bows from the Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce and Lt. Tom Kelly with the Crisp County Sheriff's Office says the support hasn't gone unnoticed.
" It feels good when we are responding to these calls and you look over and you see these bows knowing that you have that support, it just gives you a little bit extra drive during the day pulling that long shift.” Said Lt. Tom Kelly, Crisp County Sheriff’s Office.
Kelly says support like today is always felt throughout the year from the community.
"The Cordele-Crisp Chamber of Commerce always looks after us,” said Kelly.
Planter's First Bank provided these refreshments and door prizes for Law Enforcers.
"They visit our bank, they walk through our bank, they ride around our bank and they have busy schedules otherwise they take time to do that,” said Arthur Ben Morris- Planter’s First Bank President of Cordele Branch.
They also say law enforcement families are just as important.
"They make just as much of a sacrifice as the law enforcement people do so we really appreciate them as well,” said Patti Deal, Loan Officer/Vice President of Planter’s First Bank.
