“Simi Supports Our Cops” Sign Unveiled

site arial, nurse sans-serif;”>On Wednesday, January 6, 2016, the Simi Valley City Council unveiled the “Simi Supports Our Cops” signs that will be posted throughout the community at 20 locations, including areas adjacent to freeway on and off-ramps. The City Council unanimously approved adding the signs during its November 16, 2015 meeting. The signs are blue with a “thumbs up” icon.

“Simi Valley Police Officers are the unsung guardians of the lifestyle our community prides itself on, said Mayor Bob Huber. “We often take for granted feeling safe in Simi Valley, and we have our hardworking Police Department to thank for that. These signs are a small gesture so our Officers know they are appreciated.”

The sign unveiling took place in time for the signs to be posted across the community prior to Police Appreciation Day, which is on Saturday, January 9, 2016. Police Appreciation Day is set aside for residents to show their appreciation and to counteract recent negativity directed towards law enforcement.

Mayor Huber stated “I encourage all residents on Police Appreciation Day and throughout the year, to thank a Police Officer, or give them a ‘thumbs up’ so they know they have your support.”

“The members of the Simi Valley Police Department are grateful to serve a supportive community that prides itself on safety and helps law enforcement by being proactive,” said Police Chief Mitch McCann.

The “Simi Supports Our Cops” signs were made possible by a donation from the Simi Valley Police Foundation.

    I’m not surprised with the high proportion of retired LAPD that lives there.

    Still, it’s a great indication of the predominant atmosphere among our citizens gratitude toward those that stand between civilization and anarchy.
