It is always lovely to see people come together to do something nice for someone that truly deserves it. Especially police officers working for schools rarely get this kind of recognition and sometimes lack the respect they deserve.

And with the negativity surrounding the police force over the last years, it is important to remember that most police officers only want what is best for their community and work hard to improve their neighborhoods.
