Superior Police Dept. recognized by community

Posted: Updated:
SUPERIOR, WI -

This week is National Police Week, and Tuesday, the Superior Police Department received a special recognition. 

At the Central Assembly of God church in Superior, neighbors put on a luncheon for the entire police force, both current, and those who've died in the line of duty.

Officers were given food and gift cards as a way for the community to say thank you.  They also donated stuffed animals, and other children's items to the police department to be used at community events.
 
Organizers say it's just a small way to show their appreciation. 

"It's just been a real rough few years in that profession. So, we're just trying to say thank you to those that serve in the blue, and give them the recognition and honor that we really would like to see them have that they don't get publicly," said organizer Rose Ligman. 

"I think it's just a symbol of how much people care. It makes me feel good as the chief. I think that its a powerful message to our officers that their work doesn't go unnoticed, or unappreciated," said Superior Police Chief, Nicholas Alexander. 

This was the second annual police appreciation luncheon in Superior. Organizers say they plan to keep it a yearly tradition.
