Law Enforcement Appreciation

It's been more than two years since the September 11th attacks and Americans are still going above and beyond to pay tribute to law enforcement.

Saturday, Tallahassee area officers got a special treat. The Gate Gas Station on Blair Stone Road held its first ever Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Organizers say it's a new tradition they hope to continue year after year.

"I feel good about it, when I was young, growing up I kind of had things against the police officers but I got older and now I understand that they just do their job. They do what's necessary to make life better for everybody,” says Darian Fletcher, a Gate Store employee.

Gate Station employees cooked up many different dishes for the officers and their families. The event raised $284 for the Dale Green Foundation. Green was a Tallahassee police officer killed in the line of duty.
