Who: Mental Health Colorado and Health Solutions

What: Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

When: Sept. 17

Where: Health Solutions Medical Campus, 41 Montebello Road

Highlights/honorees: Spurred by the recent tragedies and events concerning the lives and safety of law enforcement, more than 200 people came together to honor and thank law enforcement members for their work in keeping our community safe. Dr. Dorothy Perry, Pueblo Police Chief Luis Velez, Pueblo Deputy Chief Troy Davenport, Sgt. Darrell Salberg of the Colorado State Patrol and Undersheriff JR Hall were some of the dignitaries in attendance. Several police officers, deputies and troopers and their families enjoyed the day.

Complimentary lunch was provided by Health Solutions and its staff. Several businesses, clubs and organizations had booths and came to show their appreciation, as well. Sangre de Cristo Hospice and Palliative Center donated bottled water and Cedar Springs Hospital donated cookies.

Blue light bulbs, showing neighborhood support for law enforcement, were sold, as well as blue lines for the rear windows of vehicles. Proceeds from the sales will be divided between the Pueblo Police Department, Sheriff’s Office and State Patrol.

Who benefits: The community and its law enforcement.
