SALISBURY, Md.- A local business in Wicomico County is helping people say "Thank You" to police officers on a national appreciation day. September 17th is the day set aside nationally to say thank you to the men and women in law enforcement.

Mojo's in Salisbury in support of national thank a police officer day has set up a thank you card box inside the restaurant and taking on the special initiative to let local officers know they are appreciated. 

Samantha Gray, one of the organizers for the national thank an officer day said it means a lot getting this special message to officers.

"They go out there and hear all the things people say that are bad and they never get to hear enough of the good...we don't thank them enough and I think it needs to be done more...they are the happiest people when we tell them thank you," said Gray.

Mojo's customer, Chris Brasure said he supports the effort.

"I think it's great, I think they deserve a lot of credit they're out here protecting us all the time, I think they deserve a little recognition when we can give it to them," Brasure said. 

Gray said they are trying to collect as many thank you cards as they can, along with a few special goodie bags.

"You can go wherever your local department is and bring a gift that day, if you want to do it any day of the year you can. This is a single day out of the year that we make sure we have an extra thank you for them," Gray said. 

Gray said anyone wanting to take part in thanking an officer on the national day can stop by Mojo's or go on its Facebook page.
