While we in the South Huntington School District community recognize the bravery, courage, honor and integrity shown by our nation’s law enforcement officers every day, today, January 9th is the one day each year set aside to show how much we value their service and protection of our communities.

National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day (L.E.A.D.) is a way to show the men and women in blue how much we value them. Today, January 9th, at Oakwood Primary Center in South Huntington, students from kindergarten to the second-grade presented hand made cards and posters to our brave men and women from South Huntington’s Second Police Precinct. On hand to accept these tokens of appreciation was Officer Jaime and Second Precinct Captain Brendan Forte.
