Respect and thanks

Optimist Clubs inspire respect for law and to do so, they honor police officers and invite them to participate in many activities throughout the year. Projects like "Shop with a Cop, "Bike Safety Rodeos," and "Child Safety Days" help children understand that police officers are friendly and approachable. Police officers are there to listen and help.

Of course police officers must also enforce the law; that is their job, and sometimes a thankless one. So many Optimist Clubs choose to hold a recognition day to say thank you to the officers in their community. This video comes from WTOC news in Savannah, Georgia where three officers and a detective were honored for keeping the streets safe.

Saying thank you goes a long way, don't you think?
