Appreciating those who protect us

Thank you, Kent Police officers, for keeping the residents of Kent safe. We have zero tolerance or sympathy to those choosing dangerous and unlawful behavior.

Thank you for keeping the innocent safe and protecting yourselves. We need you. We appreciate you. The responsible, law-abiding citizens admire your willingness to take the steps into unknown and life-threatening challenges. Steps you take every day on your shift protecting our residents.

Please thank your family for us, for they wait at home for you – their loved one – to return safely each day, of each week, of each year you serve.

Thank you, Kent Police officers.

– Robert and Sally McDonough
