Senator Terri Bryant to host appreciation card drive for local police officers

National Police Appreciation Week is May 9-15, and State Senator Terri Bryant (R-Murphysboro) is hoping residents throughout the 58th Senate District will help send a hearty thank you to law enforcement for the work they do to keep communities safe.

“Law enforcement have chosen a career in which they put themselves on the line to protect and serve their communities,” said Sen. Bryant. “Their service to public safety should be recognized, appreciated and respected.”

Sen. Bryant is asking people to mail or drop off cards, handwritten notes, encouraging and uplifting stories, drawings, etc. by Thursday, May 15 to her district office in Murphysboro (1032 W. Industrial Park Road, Murphysboro, IL 62966). Her office will personally deliver the notes/drawings to police officers throughout the 58th District.

“National Police Week is about shining a spotlight on those courageous, duty-abiding officers who live up to their badge and keep our communities safe,” said Sen. Bryant. “I hope this card drives inspires and motivates those throughout my district to support our men and women in uniform.”
