Anonymous person places 'Thank You' sign at Eden Prairie Police Department

An anonymous person placed a “Thank You” sign in front of the Eden Prairie Police Department where officers can see it every time they turn into the parking lot.

“We don’t know who took time out of their busy schedule to anonymously thank us but we appreciate it, just as we do all of the words and gestures of encouragement we received in 2015,” police said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

The department then went on to thank the community for the outpouring of support throughout a year filled with negative news.

“Throughout the year we received gifts of food, thank you cards, flowers, encouraging notes on our Facebook page, handshakes, ‘thank you for your service’ comments when we’re out in the community and letters from residents, victims and even offenders."
