Church In Tennessee Donates $1000 To Each Police Officer In Their Local Department

by AmericasKeepersAdmin on July 09, 2020

In Jonesborough Tennessee Lighthouse Missionary Baptist Church paid tribute to the local police department by holding an Independence Day Ceremony to honor them and issuing every member of the department a $1000 check.

Hundreds of people gathered to show their support for law enforcement at the ceremony held at Washington County Courthouse hosted by Pastor Perry Cleek with the Lighthouse Missionary Baptist Church.

“We at Lighthouse believe enough is enough. It’s past time for the silent majority of Americans who do not approve of lawlessness and anarchy in the streets, who do not support any movement that calls for the murder of police officers, who are willing to condemn those who loot and vandalize and destroy both public and private property, to stand tall and firm and let our voice be heard,” 
– Pastor Perry Cleek

During the ceremony Pastor Cleek handed $1000 checks to every member of the Jonesborough Department of Public Safety.

“Chief Street and all the personnel of the Jonesborough Police Department, you have our appreciation, our encouragement, our support, and our church wants to show that with more than words.”
– Pastor Cleek

Chief Street expressed his appreciation for the support from the community.

“We are very appreciative of the citizen and church support. With everything that’s going on in the country, defunding and everything, it’s nice to have your citizens behind you and supporting the work we do in the community here. We’ve found the opposite of that, we’ve been supported.”
– Chief Street

With so many people across the country demanding law enforcement be defunded it’s nice to see a community come together and support their local police department by recognizing all the good that they do.
