MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Officer Davis, who was wounded in a shooting in Milwaukee Thursday night, is stationed at MPD District 3 on the city's near north side. 

His fellow officers at the station were treated to a free meal Friday, including pizza, fruit and cake. 

This was a way for members of the community to say thank you to MPD for putting their lives on the line each day to keep the city safe.

"The officers are people too," said Captain Herb Glidewell. "A lot of us live in the community here and the officers work long shifts, they've been here many hours, so we certainly appreciate the food, we appreciate the community."

"This is one way of saying, hey, we're here for you and we just want that reciprocated back to us, and we can make a difference," said community activist Tracey Dent. 

Most of the food was donated by local businesses.
