Editorial:Thumbs up Thursday

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Fifty-nine law enforcement officers have lost their lives this year alone in the line of duty.  We as a community need to let them know they are not in this alone.

WSFA is partnering with Concerned Citizens Organized for Police Support, or CCOPS for short, to address the relationship between our citizens and law enforcement.

CCOPS has three primary goals:  Develop interaction between the citizens and police, Inform our citizens of the job and sacrifices that these dedicated men and women do each day and give honor to deserving law enforcement on a quarterly basis

The interaction between the citizens and police takes two forms;  "Blue Mondays" and "Thumbs up Thursdays."  Thumbs up Thursday is this Thursday and every third Thursday of each month.  On that day give a big thumbs up to any and all law enforcement officers that you encounter to show your support for what they do.

You can visit the CCOPS Facebook page for more information on this great community initiative.

Here's a big Thumbs Up to you for sending our police the right message.
