A local hospital held a special event to say thanks to law enforcement who serve the community every day.
On the morning of Thursday, June 14th, Jefferson Health's Washington Township Hospital held its third annual Police Appreciation Breakfast for police officers in the area that work closely with emergency staff at the hospital.
The two-hour event is a way for hospital employees to personally thank all the officers who work day in and day out to protect everyone in the community.
"Saying thank you and letting someone know that they're appreciated, it's just a good thing to do and they put their lives on the line every day," said Kristine Hunt, nurse manager at Jefferson Health's Washington Township Hospital.
During the event, the Washington Township Police Department received a plaque in recognition of its assistance and support during a traumatic event at the hospital’s ER last September.
