Palatine PD Boosters Local Law Enforcement Appreciation Week

May 12-18

The Palatine PD Boosters organization is proud to be sponsoring Local Law Enforcement Appreciation Week May 12-18, 2019, running in conjunction with National Police Week. 

Show your appreciation for the Police Department by displaying yard signs and putting blue light bulbs in your outdoor light fixtures. Businesses with outdoor signs are encouraged to display a message of appreciation and encouragement for officers.
Yard signs ($10 each) and blue LED light bulbs ($5 each) may be purchased from the Palatine PD Boosters from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 4-5 at the following Palatine locations: Jewel-Osco (45 S. Plum Grove Rd.), Jewel-Osco (423 E. Dundee Rd.), and Eurofresh Market (130 W. Northwest Hwy.); and Saturday, May 11 at Eurofresh. Items will also be available at the Palatine Farmers’ Market (137 W Wood St.) Saturday, May 4 and 11, 7:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. (while supplies last). 

This event is an awareness and support campaign, not a fundraiser. All proceeds will go to the Palatine PD Boosters, a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, to cover the costs of the effort. 

The primary goal of the Palatine PD Boosters is to assist and support the Palatine Police Department by improving our community's relationship with the Police through education and communication, as well as engaging in a variety of volunteer activities which will aid and benefit the dedicated men and women who serve the community.
