Jacksonville residents thank police officers


Jacksonville residents publicly expressed their gratitude to past and present police officers by endorsing the proclamation banner circulated by the We Can Be Heroes Foundation. The large banner was presented at the Jacksonville Police Memorial Building on Thursday, Sept. 15. 

The proclamation thanks and salutes past and present law enforcement officers for standing watch to protect individuals, families, neighborhoods and property against crime.

“Sometimes in the wake of recent tragedies, police officers have not received the gratitude and thanks they deserve,” We Can Be Heroes Foundation President Beth Heath said. “This banner reminds law enforcement their service is respected by countless thousands of grateful people in or passing through this city.” 

We Can Be Heroes Foundation publicizes nominations from across nation for heroes and unsung heroes, including first responders, community volunteers, veterans and youth. In addition, it hosts tributes to heroes and educational forums to promote American values and help veterans and those in need.
