At this year’s IACP Convention in San Diego, participants got a rare chance to show their respect for law enforcement and the sacrifices they make to serve and protect. Someone had a genius idea to put up a blank black board at the Vigilant Solutions booth.

As soon as the empty board went up the Vigilant Solutions people invited passersby to write a note in recognition or memory of a law enforcement person they knew. Within 30 minutes, the blackboard was filled with moving, emotional notes, some from people who had lost a spouse or friend in the line of duty. Several officers who signed the board said they were going to put up a similar board in their cities and towns as soon as they had a chance.
