SCMPD holds Employee Appreciation Cookout

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department officers from the Central Precinct were thanked with an employee appreciation cookout this afternoon.

The cookout was a way for Captain Adams to thank his many officers for all their hard work and dedication to the force.

Special Projects Officer Barry Lewis, explained, "With this appreciation we are trying to let officers know that we are all on the same team; we appreciate what they do. I am part of that group, but we appreciate the time they put in, the effort they put in, the long hours they put in.  It's tiring and it gets mentally tiring.  After a while, a good pat on the back or a thank you is a good thing."

Several officers were awarded with certificates that included "Employee of the Month" and a Community Spotlight Hero Award.
