WEST LAMPETER TOWNSHIP, Pa. — People in Lancaster County came together on Sunday to say thank you to the men and women in uniform who keep them safe.

For the past 31-years, Grace Church at Willow Valley in West Lampeter Township, has held a service to honor police officers. The service displayed a huge show of support for officers and all they do to keep the community safe.

Awards were given for Outstanding Officer, Outstanding Detective and Outstanding Act of Bravery.

One of the speakers at the event, State Senator Ryan Aument, (R) 36th District, said,”These are men and women who live in our community, who we see at the grocery store, we see them at places of recreation, who are involved in the community, so I think here we have a strong relationship and a strong, high regard for law enforcement.”

Lancaster City Police Officer Kirk Wolfe said, “To have them come and say we appreciate you, I can tell you from the law enforcement community, that means more than anything to us.”

Also giving special remarks at the event, Lancaster County District Attorney Craig Stedman and State Rep. Keith Greiner. The Lancaster City Mounted Officers and the West Lampeter Police Department Honor Guard also performed at the service.
