Sometime during the holidays a thank you sign appeared outside the Police Department, stuck into a snowbank at a corner where squad cars turn into our parking lot. We don’t know who took time out of their busy schedule to anonymously thank us but we appreciate it, just as we do all of the words and gestures of encouragement we received in 2015.
Last year the work of law enforcement made headlines in Minnesota and across the country. While much of the news was negative, we found an outpouring of support for our officers and the work they do in Eden Prairie. Throughout the year we received gifts of food, thank you cards, flowers, encouraging notes on our Facebook page, handshakes, “thank you for your service” comments when we’re out in the community and letters from residents, victims and even offenders.
We’d like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who has supported us as we work to make Eden Prairie a safe and vibrant community. We appreciate all of your efforts, big and small, and look forward to continuing to serve you in 2016.
