Moultrie Police officers said they're feeling the love from their community.

Officers have received cards and gifts from residents over the past several days. 

The police department shared a huge 'thank you' with all of their Facebook followers.

They want to show their appreciation for the recurring acts of kindness. 

"One person comes in and says, 'We got your back and thank you for having our backs. We support you,'" said Major Tonero Bender.  "We get a lot of 'We support you.' Especially when I'm out eating lunch, a lot of people are saying, 'We support you. Thanks for the job you do.'"

Major Bender said the department continues to make an effort to build relationships with members of the community.
