Last Friday, we closed our office at 3:30 p.m. so that our office staff and operations personnel could attend a "support rally" organized by local politicians to recognize and thank local law enforcement. We did leave one dispatcher behind in a back office so business went on as usual on the phones but the office was dark.

As conflicts arise throughout the nation between citizens and law enforcement officials, it hit home here in Bakersfield, Calif., when two city police officers were fired upon while sitting in their squad car.  
 
As a company, we want to support our local law enforcement. It was important to us to show up and help boost morale and show our appeciation. We carried signs and participated in a balloon release honoring officers killed in the line of duty. Each balloon represented an individual officer.

Our company frequently participates in community events both that benefit our community as a whole and feel the participation in the community we serve is beneficial to us for marketing purposes as well as supporting the philanthropic efforts within our service area.
