Something to make you smile! Last month a father sent us this wonderful letter of appreciation for officers in Central Sector. #mondaymotivation #seeyourworkmatter I wanted to say thank you to the officers of the Lexington Police Department Central Sector that my family has met in the last few weeks since moving back to Lexington. My wife and I have tried for 2 years in other cities where we lived to get a meet and greet with our children, especially our special needs son. When we moved here we mentioned wanting to set something up for them to meet an officer at Police HQ, and within a short while Officer Adkins was at our house to meet my children, but most importantly my Autistic son. We wanted our son to meet officers in an attempt to make him more comfortable with Police so if there is an emergency or he needs help he is not afraid to approach an officer. Officer Adkins took the time to talk to my son even though he was hiding behind my legs and not responding. Officer Adkins did not give up and by the end of the visit my son actually spoke to him, gave him a high-five, and even took a picture with him beside his patrol car. Officer Adkins gave him a badge sticker and deputized Niko, and the rest of that day he would rub his badge and smile about every 5 minutes. Officer Adkins came back out and spoke with Niko again, and even introduced him to another officer. When Officer Adkins and his partner left my son gave him a hug, and I tried not to show the emotion ‘til they left and I was back in my office. The joy he brought to my little man means the world to me and my wife. My son asks me daily if Officer Adkins is going to come see him today and when I tell him he can't come over every day because the city does not pay him to play in our yard with him every day my son replied well they should daddy. Also I want to make sure Officers Quick and Padgett get recognition as well for their outstanding efforts to allow my son to get familiar with other officers in the department. We had a great visit with them which meant a lot to my little girl who has been told by boys that she cannot do things like be an officer because she is a girl. She got to meet these two amazing female officers who talked and played with her in our driveway, all the while trying to interact with my special needs son. When they left both my children were so happy these two amazing officers took the time to come meet them and play with them. I want to sincerely thank the officers for the amazing experience and helping to show my kids that they do not need to fear Police Officers. You guys and gals are some of the best officers I have ever encountered and your effort to make my kids comfortable means the world to my wife and I.

The roundup, as part of the national Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative, focused efforts on violent offenders and those with significant charges, such as assault, wanton endangerment, sex crimes, trafficking in narcotics, high dollar thefts and other serious crimes.

Thank you to the Greater Lexington Paralegal Association for the wonderful donation of 92 teddy bears! 🐻 Officers will give them to children they encounter who could use a cuddly pick me up.

Never forget.
