Bravo @lpsmediaoffice 🚔 ......this is the definition of community service. Not staged, not self appreciating, just a regular street cop doing the right thing. Kudos to the officer. Those are the ones I'd want on my Platoon.👍👍 #ThinBlueLine #Police— jiggs (@61_Boomer) January 28, 2019

I live downtown, where there is always a significant police presence. As I've said many times before, our police service may not be perfect, but they are every day, doing things to help out our most needy citizens. I have great faith in them. #ldnont— Mike (@mikelondoncan) January 28, 2019
