“Thank You” Rock Left for Elkader Police

In the midst of strong tensions between police and protesters across the country – including in Davenport and Des Moines – there was an act of kindness demonstrated to a local police department.

Elkader Police shared a Facebook post on Monday. An officer had pulled up to the station and found a rock waiting for them that simply said, “Thank You”.

He says it may not seem like a big deal, but to them right now, it is.

The police department’s post read, “We are so thankful for our supportive community and we promise we’ll do everything we can to get better at what we do. We’re here for you, just like you are for us.”
