State Sen. Dewitte from St. Charles Leads Police Appreciation Effort

State Senator Donald DeWitte (R-St. Charles) is hoping residents throughout the 33rd Senate District will help send a hearty thank you to law enforcement for the work they do to keep communities safe.

“Our dedicated members of law enforcement work hard to keep communities safe for individuals and families, and especially during National Police Appreciation Week they deserve to know they are valued and appreciated,” said Sen. DeWitte. “I hope to have a high level of community participation in my card drive.”

As part of National Police Appreciation Week (May 9-15), DeWitte is asking people to mail or drop off cards, handwritten notes, encouraging and uplifting stories, drawings, etc. by Thursday, May 13 to his district office in West Dundee (641 S. 8th Street, West Dundee, 60118). He and his staff will personally deliver the notes/drawings to police officers throughout the 33rd District.

“While I hope to collect a lot of cards, drawings, and well-wishes, there are a lot of other ways people can show their appreciation to local police officers,” continued DeWitte. “In addition to making a card, I would encourage people to display blue outdoor lights on their front porches during the week of May 9-15, and to personally thank members of law enforcement they encounter when out and about in town.”
