BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- On January 9th of each year, partnering organizations in support of law enforcement officers nationwide promote National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D).

"We appreciate the community support we receive, we can't do this alone," Officer Ronnie Ward, the Public Information Officer for the Bowling Green Police Department said, "We have such great political support, the education system supports us. It's really wonderful to be able to work in this community."

Citizens who appreciate law enforcement and are discouraged about the negative attention being given to law enforcement are encouraged to show their support on this day.
