Florida Police Department Sends Sweet Message to Health Care Workers
By Allyson Vannatta, Senior Writer
A police department in Florida showed their support for a local hospital in a unique way.
According to Fox News, the Fort Myers Police Department parked 14 of their police cars outside Lee Memorial Hospital in the shape of a heart. Inside the heart, officers held up letters that said “FMPD Thanks you.”
The police department did this to send a message of love to all the frontline workers inside the hospital fighting the coronavirus.
When the officers had to get back to work, they left their letter message on the pavement in the parking lot so healthcare workers could continue to see the support.
The Fort Myers Police Department shared photos of the cruisers outside the hospital in a post on Facebook.
“We appreciate each of the hard-working medical professionals and wanted to simply say ‘Thank You,’” the post said. “It was a pretty amazing and personal turnout and we couldn’t be more proud to work side by side with you Lee Health.”
Lee Health also shared a video on their Facebook page of the cars and what the police department did for them.
This isn’t the first-time people used their cars to send a message to others.
