Thank You Huntsville, Madison County and all Law Enforcement in North Alabama


Thank You Huntsville, Madison County and all Law Enforcement in North Alabama


From those of us at the Rocket City Blog, we would like to thank all of our local law enforcement officers. We want you to know that we appreciate your sacrifice, especially at a time when it seems everyone wants to criticize and judge you for a job that most would be in fear of doing. We feel you do a great job of not only policing our area but do a great job at policing your own. Thanks for taking care of us. Thanks for a job well done with too little pay and too little support. God bless you!

Here is a great story about a young lady that has shown her appreciation for law enforcement.
