If you see a cop on Saturday, give him or her a round of applause.
The goal is to show support for police officers through small acts of gratitude or by simply saying “thank you." The men and women who comprise police departments across the country, including the members of the Twin Cities Police Department, put their lives on the line daily to protect the citizenry. Yet they often get a bad rap, according to the Whole Truth Project, an organization with a mission to support law enforcement officers by promoting a pro-police message.
So, if an officer is driving by, give a thumbs-up, a wave or some golf claps. If you're passing by one on the street, say something nice or shake the officer's hand. We dare you.
