While the acts of the police that make headlines are frequently revisited and applied with a wide brush to our entire profession. The acts of community support and kindness are seldom mentioned. Time for this to change and for the NLCRPD change starts here. Contrary to the messages featured in some of the local, statewide, national, and social media platforms many residents support and recognize police officers and a genuinely grateful for their service and daily acts of courage, kindness, tolerance and active problem solving in the delivery of high quality professional police services.Gratitude and appreciation are a two-way street. It is absolutely necessary to take a moment and offer a measure of gratitude from the NLCRPD to the community. Beyond a simple act of appreciation and courtesy from the NLCRPD team, it provides a perspective that reflects what the community does to support the NLCRPD officers as they continue to serve their communities. NLCRPD team members understand and appreciate the meaning of citizen support and thankfulness.
