The Conyers-Rockdale Chamber of Commerce is showing their appreciation for the men and women who work to keep the community safe during National Law Enforcement Appreciation Week, May 11-15, with a free Law Enforcement Appreciation luncheon on May 15.
In addition, the Chamber is asking the community and local businesses to do what they can to show their appreciation to law enforcement as well during that week. The deadline to sign up to participate is May 1.
"Every day, the dedicated law enforcement officers and deputies of Conyers-Rockdale place themselves in harm's way to ensure that our community remains safe. They also understand that support and involvement from the local citizens is essential to keeping our community safe," wrote event organizers Terry Massey of the Massey Law Firm and T. Pat Cavanaugh of The News.
The May 15 appreciation event will feature a free barbecue lunch for law enforcement as well as prize drawings and giveaways.
"Working in law enforcement is not just a job, it's a calling. Officers take an oath to serve and to protect their communities, no matter the cost. All officers make sacrifices. They sacrifice holidays, weekends, evenings and time with their families," said Massey and Cavanaugh.
"Let's join together to say thank you to these honorable men and women."
