Students at Fowler Middle School Write Letters to Dallas Police Officers


The Dallas Police Department would like to give a huge thank you to the seventh and eighth grade students of Fowler Middle School in Coach Rutland’s class for writing thank you letters to police officers and firefighters in Dallas, Frisco, and Plano. Coach Rutland said she wanted her students to be “appreciative of law enforcement officers and firefighters.”

She said, “my students and I both admire the work and service your profession carries out. Words can only express a portion; however, I hope these letters show the impact and difference you all make. It does not go unnoticed.”

One student, Eric, stated in his letter, “I”m writing to thank you for putting yourself in the way of my family and the not-so-great people of the world. By doing so, it really shows that you care for your community, your people, and your country.”

Another student, Milith, said “It’s hard to imagine what it would be like without you. Everyone would be living in fear and terror while bad people roamed the street. But people like you are brave enough to get out there and put a halt to criminals. You are one of the main reasons we are leading happy lives. I think I can speak for the whole world when I say THANK YOU!”

Thank you again to Coach Rutland and her students for taking the time to write letters for our officers. We truly appreciate your kind words and the show of support.
