Public Support of Law Enforcement in the aftermath of the Dallas Police Shootings
"The Willimantic Police Department would like to thank the citizens of Willimantic for their overwhelming support of the city police department in the wake of the horrific events surrounding the shootings in Dallas. City police have received baked goods, sports drinks, an Edible Arrangement, numerous pizzas, as well as food items and coffee from Dunkin Donuts on a fairly regular basis since early Friday morning. We would like to publicly say; 'Thank you' for their support of law enforcement. In a world full of cynicism and vitriol, and most recently during these difficult and tense times nationwide involving law enforcement, it is refreshing to see that people still value their police officers. " -Cpl. Stanley Parizo, Jr. said this morning.
