Church members honor police officers

THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Pastors want to show local officers just how much they appreciate having officers them in the community. This Sunday Restoration Tabernacle Ministries will honor the police department by speaking and praying to them, serving them a hot meal and handing out gifts.

Local police officers reached out to pastors in the community this past October to give them a better understanding of what law enforcement members encounter every single day.

"We had to act like we were the police officers walking into a situation and it was very intense, it really changed my mind about negative talk about the police because they go through a lot," said Brenda Davis "We realize what you go through when you put on that badge and you put on that uniform we realize what you go through its not unnoticed."

Church members are also inviting officers from other cities in South Georgia in hopes they'll host their own pastors summit. Officers tell us why they were so passionate about reaching out to the community.


"Because we love the community, we love Thomasville, and we want our citizens to feel comfortable and proud to talk to us or have anything to do with us. We don't want anyone to fear us, so to have a church put on a service such as this its an honor," said Captain Maurice Holmes.

Restoration Tabernacle Ministries will honor police officers Sunday at 3:00. The event is open to the public.
