Saying thanks to police officers – with a whole lot of Post-it notes

Publish date:

The decoration doesn't follow squad uniform regulations – but for one morning, as a way to say thanks to police officers, it was allowed.

Hundreds of colorful Post-it notes were stuck to the windows and doors of a Fargo Police Department vehicle Monday morning, with words of encouragement, support and thanks from the community members to officers.

The gesture comes at the start of National Police Week, and a day after Peace Officers Memorial Day.

The Fargo Police Department posted a few photos of the speckled squad to Facebook.

The decorating was done by Choice Financial bank (with permission, the Fargo PD notes). The bank said it wants to "surprise our local police officers with notes of gratitude," and was letting customers fill out Post-it notes at a number of locations, including in Grand Forks, Grafton and Bismarck.

Choice Financial has 20 locations total, one of which is in Comfrey, Minnesota, while the rest are in North Dakota.
