“For Everything There is a Season: In Appreciation…”

About this time every year, we publicly thank the Ottawa Police Department and the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department for making sure funeral processions make it safely through Ottawa and Franklin County.

Every time we have a funeral procession led by law enforcement, making sure intersections are safe, getting us to the cemetery without incident, showing the respect that they do, makes me glad I live where I do.  Not all communities are lucky enough to have this public service.  We shouldn’t take it for granted.  They don’t have to provide this service.  They do it out of respect for the citizens of this area.

Please remember though, emergency calls take precedence over funeral procession escorts and they are not always available.  It happens every once in a while, when they have an emergency call that takes precedence.  It makes one appreciate their service even more when an escort is unavailable.
