Thursday was Law Enforcement Appreciation Day across the nation and many local businesses and individuals took time to recognize local departments and officers. Jersey Mike’s Subs in Fort Gratiot, teamed up with the Fort Gratiot Home Depot to bring in lunch for the deputies at the St. Clair County Sheriff’s Office and the staff from Eastern Michigan Bank Huron stopped by to drop off donuts from Chef Shell’s. The Port Huron Police Department also sent out a special thanks to everyone who reached out to the department on the appreciation day. The national observance started in 2015 by Concerns of Police Survivors to show the over 900,000 law enforcement officers in the United States that citizens recognize the difficult and sometimes impossible career they have chosen, in public service.
