With Lamar County law enforcement officers protecting and serving the community, Lamar County Adopt-A-Cop has set noon July 5 for its latest adoption event, and adoptions will go live on the organization’s Facebook page here.
Each year the organization puts officers up for adoption and presents them with gift bags filled with various police supplies. These bags will contain items officers find useful while on duty, which also help keep them safe.
“We are blessed to have a wonderful community that appreciates those who protect and serve us each and every day. We want our officers to know they are appreciated and supported by our community,” said Lamar County Adopt-A-Cop President Amanda Willows. “We are more than blessed to have such amazing officers in Lamar County, and we want them to know how blessed we feel.”
Willows said when the organization posts its adoption event at 12 p.m. on July 5 on Facebook here, adopters can comment, “I back our blue,” to make the $50 adoption. The organization will then respond to the commenter in a private message with an officer’s name. They can also request a specific officer, if available.
The adoption gifts will be presented to the officers in September on National Thank a Police Officer Day.
