Local briefs: Law Enforcement Appreciation Day and more
LAW ENFORCEMENT APPRECIATION DAY
The City of South Lake Tahoe will be hosting the inaugural Law Enforcement Appreciation Day on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 5-7:30 p.m. at Lakeview Commons at El Dorado Beach. The entire community is invited to attend this event as we say “thank you” to all law enforcement on the South Shore, including California and Nevada.
This is a multi-agency event, with appreciation shown to California Highway Patrol, Douglas County Sheriff Department, El Dorado County Probation Department, El Dorado County Sheriff Department (STAR and Search & Rescue), FBI (South Lake Tahoe Division), Nevada Highway Patrol, SLEDNET, South Lake Tahoe Police Department (SLTPCA and SWAT), and USFS Law Enforcement.
This will be an opportunity for the community to show South Lake Tahoe’s finest men and women how much they appreciate them keeping everyone safe with their service and sacrifices.
Local music group “Taking Root” will play a free concert at Lakeview Commons with the help of On Course events. Craft tables will be set up to make thank you cards and posters for all agencies.
