One group at the welcome back celebration was the
La Crosse Police department.
They got a standing ovation at the event.
Tonight the department held it's own celebration.
the annual 'Police Appreciation Picnic' at copeland
park in La Crosse.
Police Appreciation Day
I'm always amazed at just how professional, how human
our police officers are here in this area.
And they do such a wonderful job, so it's nice to
be able to just spend a little bit of time and show
them how much we really support them and care about
This is the 15th year for the appreciation picnic.
