5 Ways Companies Can Show Support for Local Police
Local law enforcement’s positive impacts on the community need to be celebrated! Businesses and community members don’t have to participate in an over the top gift or experience to show their support. Instead, there are plenty of ways people can demonstrate their appreciation for their local police departments that are simple, but just as meaningful. Don’t know where to start? Here is a list of quick and easy ways to show your appreciation for your local police department:
Send a care package or letter
Taking the time to put together a quick care package filled with goodies or sending a handwritten note are both really simple ways to reach out to local police officers. These gestures are not only affordable, but they also won’t take a lot of time out of your day.
Share positive local law enforcement stories on social media
Social media is the new word of mouth. Posting a positive story or interaction with a local police officer is a great way to inform followers and friends, while simultaneously showing support. Don’t forget to tag your local law enforcement on social media so they can see it and can respond!
Wear or decorate with the color blue
Simply wearing or decorating with the color blue can go a long way. For example, try hanging a blue ribbon outside or on your car to show your support in a subtle, easy way. Throwing on a blue shirt is also a really simple gesture that lets local police know you have their backs.
Pick up a police officers tab
Whether you see a local police officer during your lunch break, or when you are out for dinner, consider picking up their tab. This is a great way to show your support and go the extra mile for local law enforcement officers.
Host a company-wide fundraiser
Encourage your place of work to back the blue by hosting a company-wide fundraiser. Not only is this a great way to show support, but it’s also a family friendly experience as well. Use the proceeds to help fund police training events or simply purchase and deliver bulk snacks to your local precincts.
Encourage your family and friends to join you in showing their support for your local police department. Remember, a small gesture can really go a long way. For an extra bonus, pledge with True Blue Tempe and show your support for the Tempe Police Department. You can pledge by clicking here.
