This week is National Police Week. The last year has been a challenging one for all law enforcement officers in the State of Minnesota. As your Chief, I want to say thank you to the residents of Prior Lake and the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux communities.
Throughout 2020, hundreds of you have stopped by the Prior Lake Police Department to say thank you and show your support. Some examples of these acts of kindness were, artwork from your children, groups sewing masks for our officers, providing health and wellness services, dropping off pastries, cookies, and healthy treats, or just simply saying you have been thinking about us!
Policing in America has never been easy. We derive our authority from the people. We have always and will always accept this mandate as we continue to serve. As the public debate continues about what society wants our police officers to do, who we want our police officers to be, these visits and gestures of kindness are an outward expression by all of you which say thank you and we value your service.
This means more than you will ever know to each of us!
Steve Frazer, Prior Lake Chief of Police
