LAPD is one of the first police agencies we served when Morale Boosters began. We were privileged to visit the Newton Station (and many others) in person, accompanied by volunteers. We provided catered lunches, Marie Callender pies, Bibles, handwritten thank-you cards, and custom banners. At Christmas, we delivered a box of snacks for the Officers' break room with thank-you notes and Bibles tucked in-between the snacks.
Newton is in a rough part of South Central and these Officers see the worst of the worst while helping many innocent victims. Two of our youngest volunteers, brothers Landon and Wyatt, were treated to a tour of the station, even sitting in a squad car.
We've enjoyed a long-term friendship with LAPD Officer Joe who arranged visits to Newton and other stations. We are allowed to bring Bibles and other Christian material as long as we don't hand them directly to the Officers. They usually ALL disappear regardless. At one visit, we ran out of Bibles, and had to start a list for those who didn't get one. We sent those Bibles soon after :)
