Students Honor Deputies
Jackson Elementary School 4th graders turned the tables on local law enforcement in honor of National Police Week. The students prepared stacks and stacks of “tickets” thanking the deputies at the sheriff’s department for being “awesome” public servants. The tickets and other drawings thanking the deputies will be distributed to the officers at the sheriff’s department.
Reserve Deputy Scott Davis picked up the tickets and thanked the students for remembering them during this special week.
“It is very refreshing to know that the students and schools in Jackson County go out of their way to show their appreciation to all of the law enforcement officers in our county,” Davis said. “We are humbled by their kindness and generosity.”
May 14th – 20th is National Police Week. This week recognizes all law enforcement officers, especially those killed in the line of duty and their survivors. National Peace Officers Memorial Day was started by President John F. Kennedy in 1962 and has become a week long national tribute to the law enforcement community nationwide.
