On July 25, residents and businesses in Overbrook and the surrounding community took time to show appreciation for Overbrook police officers. The department is made up of only a chief, a full-time officer and a few part-time officers. However, considering the scope of service they provide; they are a terrific public safety team.
Across our nation police and law enforcement officers are being targeted by radicals. Concern for their safety on the job is at an all time high. Prayers for their protection are always welcome and encouraged.
Even small town police face enormous challenges carrying out their job requirements while adhering to the political correctness the public demands. It’s very assuring to know that Overbrook Police are dedicated to the simple fact that, “all lives matter.”
Today on behalf of our town, I’m issuing a Mayor’s Proclamation establishing Monday, July 25, as “We Love Our Police” day in Overbrook.
