BATH, NY (WETM)- A trend circulating police officer’s social media pages urge people to support their community. Bath Chief of Police Chad Mullen read the message and knew that he had to post it himself.
The post says:
“I am a Police Officer
Thank you for your generosity, however to be honest, I don’t need free pizza or free cups of coffee. I don’t need a Law Enforcement discount or to be first in line at Costco or Walmart.
As much as I greatly appreciate the gesture, please – please – please offer a free cup of coffee or pizza to the families who are struggling to feed their children, and the older generation and the self employed and to anyone else who is suffering financially from Covid-19.
I’m fortunate to still have a job and not laid off or losing my income. I am truly blessed to be able to go to work each day to serve and protect you, my fellow citizens, neighbors and friends.
To my fellow Police Officers and Law Enforcement Officers, please join me and copy and paste to support our communities and friends!
Copied from a brother Police Officer.”
Mullan encourages people to give to their local charities or neighbors who need help.
