Enid Cares – Law Enforcement Appreciation Day
The Enid City Commission is hosting Enid Cares – Law Enforcement Appreciation Day on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 with a luncheon from 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm in the Grand Ballroom at Convention Hall. Tickets are $10 per person for lunch and officers in uniform or with their badge or ID will be free.
Keynote speakers will be Oklahoma Department of Public Safety Commissioner Michael Thompson and District Attorney Mike Fields. Agencies being represented will be the local Oklahoma Highway Patrol, Garfield County Sheriff’s Department, Enid Police Department, North Enid Police Department, and Vance Air Force Base security forces.
The law enforcement appreciation day was suggested by Ward 6 Commissioner Dr. David Vanhooser, stating, “Enid has the finest Law Enforcement personnel I’ve seen anywhere. We do not have the problems that some other cities have seen. This day of appreciation is a perfect way for the Enid citizens to show our support.”
“With the current state of affairs, we thought it was important to show our law enforcement officers this is a community that appreciates the sacrifices they make for us every day. I think most of us are inherently thankful for them but we don’t say it out loud often enough,” said Ward 5 Commissioner, Tammy Wilson. “We would like to encourage the community to join us for lunch on the 4th to say thank you to them for all they do,” Wilson added.
The Enid Police Department Color Guard will be presenting the colors and the Enid High School Show Choir will be performing. North Enid Police Chief, Rick Dominic, Pastor of Your Family Church, will be offering the prayer and the event will be emceed by April Danahy.

Tickets may be purchased at the door the day of the event.
