This past Tuesday, May 8, Laurel hosted a get-together between Henrico County Police officers and members of the church. An amazing 19 officers participated along with 9 Laurel members and friends. This group were the 1:30 pm shift coming on, and they appreciated a snack with us before they got into their squad cars.
As with our April event, we affirmed our appreciation of the work the police do in our community, and several officers shared tips about safety at home and online. It was also just a great opportunity to put a face with the badge so to speak and Laurel folks were encouraged to get know our local police and even engage in ride-alongs (more on that later!) Again, many thanks to Sue Bell and company for organizing this timely and important connection with our community law enforcement.
