Arlington County Police Department officers got free cold-cut sandwiches, cookies and iced tea last night as a thank-you for their work in Lyon Village.
The Lyon Village Citizens’ Association gave the dinner to about 20 cops at the neighborhood’s community house during the officers’ breaks, said John Carten, a member of the organization’s executive committee.
Locals sought to show their appreciation for the cops as a growing number of police controversies across the United States have made national headlines, Carten said.
The county’s officers are “always responsive” at community meetings and on patrol in Lyon Village, he said.
“We just wanted to let them know we are behind them,” Carten said.
