5th annual National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day

DOTHAN, AL. (WTVY) - With it being National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day... It's important to show officers how much we appreciate their work and sacrifice.

One local community hero goes by the name of Will Glover.

At the beginning of December, Lt. Glover was found on the ground next to his patrol car at the gas pumps behind the Dothan Civic Center.

Glover had suffered an aneurysm and is now recovering.

Terry Nelson, Investigator with the Dothan Police Department, says "He had left for rehab in Florida. Once he got up there, he's completed a seven-day program. He'll be headed home today. They're expecting a 100% recovery and I believe he's done with the rehab completely. He's done so well."

On January 5, 2019, a fundraiser was held to help Glover's family with medical expenses.

More than $7600 was raised.
