Anonymous Donor Pays for Meal for Milwaukee Police Officers
Thursday night, local officers still on the job were honored during National Police Week.
An anonymous donor helped pay for food for Milwaukee Police Officers heading into work at the district two police station.
They grabbed a hot dog and hand-made thank you cards from local children made at Sunday school.
“When they saw the food they were really excited but it was really nice to see them be touched when they saw the cards with their name on it. Individualized, personalized right for them. Many of them coming back and saying it was really nice to get the cards,” George Papachristou, District 2 Chaplain said.
The Milwaukee Police Department has lost 61 members in the line of duty since the department was organized in 1855.
