In Appreciation: Thanks, police, for putting your lives on the line

I am a senior at Duluth East High School and would like to thank the Duluth Police Department for all its efforts to keep my school safe in the scare that happened on April 5.

Gillian PedersenAfter the incident ("'We got lucky:' Officials detail threat response at Duluth school," April 11), it came to my attention that no one might have said "thank you." I would like to thank the officers for even more than keeping our school safe. I thank them for putting their lives on the line every day to keep our community safe.

I know the job must be hard and that sometimes it might seem like no one appreciates what police officers do. So this is a reminder that I am thankful for everything Duluth Police do every single day.
