Their job is to protect and serve the city of Dothan.
Now their community wants to honor their dedication.
Tuesday Dothan city commissioners proclaimed next week "Police Week."
This acts as a "thank you" to more than 150 Dothan police officers.
"We really do enjoy serving and protecting the citizens of Dothan and personally as police chief I want to thank each and every member of the Dothan Police Department I want the public to know just how professional a police department you have," said Dothan Police Chief Greg Benton.
"Police Week" will be observed May 12th through May 18th.
