Wyoming Elementary students had the opportunity to show their appreciation to the Wyoming Police Department on April 6 during the Operation Thank an Officer event. The event allows students from schools across the state to hand write and design thank you cards and letters to police officers thanking them for their service to the community. The cards and letters are collected throughout the months leading up to National Police Week, which will be held May 15 to 21, and the Operation Thank an Officer organization will open each letter to make sure it goes to the right department.
Students at Wyoming Elementary were able to receive a high-five from an officer, a sticker badge and a bracelet while they placed their cards through the window of a squad car for collection. More than 1,000 cards were received from the students.
