COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO)— The United States Attorney’s Office is celebrating law enforcement agencies across the state today in observance of national Law Enforcement Appreciation Day!

The new year is the perfect time to show appreciation and support the law enforcement agencies who go above and beyond for our community by responding to critical incidents, gathering toys during the holidays for children in need, and distributing groceries for families, says the Office in a statement.

Members of the USAO will be making visits to departments in the upstate and lowcountry to thank officers in person and to share artwork done by local school children thanking officers.

The USAO encourages members of the community to take a moment to thank your local community officers, school resource officers, etc.

Here are a few simple things you can do to thank the officers in your community:

1.          Take snacks/bottled water to local departments, along with a note of support;  

2.         Suggest to schools and children that they write letters or draw pictures supporting law enforcement and then drop those letters/pictures off at the local police department/sheriff’s office;

3.         Send a letter, card, or email to your local law enforcement agency expressing support and appreciation.  Ask that your support be shared with agency staff; and   

4.         Take a moment to thank the officers you encounter during your normal day.
