Camarillo residents hosted a community event last Saturday, January 9th, at the Camarillo Community Center on Burnley St. to celebrate National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
The group collected Thank You cards and artwork to show support for our local Law Enforcement Officers. Camarillo resident, Steve Sullivan organized the event saying, “I had observed over the past seven months how our local law enforcement officers have been under attack by some local residents and how the local police have done a tremendous job with numerous significant events in our community. They have been involved with robberies and shootings here in Camarillo. Our officers responded efficiently and with great integrity to bring swift resolve to the crimes. They deserve to be honored by the community that they serve.”
This event was put together on short notice and very successful. “We put this out on social media and our community showed tremendous support”, said Sullivan. Since the administrative offices for the local police office were closed over the weekend, the cards were delivered to the Camarillo Police station on Monday, January 11.
The group plans to hold additional events within the community to show support to “Back the Blue”. To find out more information about this event and future ones, you can find the group online at camarillorecall.org.
