Today is Local Law Enforcement Appreciation Day and I would like to take a minute to thank all of our local heroes!

I would like to thank all of our law enforcement officers for the sacrifices they make each in every day. They put their life on the line for each and everyone of us, usually for idiots that are trying to endanger theirs.

Today, I had the opportunity to attend the "Coffee With A Cop" event and had the pleasure of meeting Midland's new Chief of Police Steve Henry.

Chief Henry has agreed to come on my  show one morning as a special co-host. I am looking forward to that. It is very important to get to know these officers in our community.

Today if you see a law enforcement official, shake their hand, pay for their meal, or just tell them thank you, for all they do!
