On behalf of the men and women of the Idaho State Police, I want to express our thanks to the people of Idaho. We are grateful for your expressions of support and appreciation that we have received from people all across our state. We are thankful for the cookies, cakes, and other thoughtful gestures you have made at many of the ISP Offices statewide. The notes, cards, pictures, and letters sent or delivered personally from your kind children have been humbling. ISP employees from around Idaho have shared with me, their feelings of gratitude for the numerous people who stop them at gas stations, car washes, and restaurants to thank them for the work they do. Recently, a caring young girl delivered flowers and a kind note to the people serving in an ISP Communication Center. The show of support from communities across Idaho is humbling. We understand your trust is earned, and we continue our commitment to serving the people of our state with integrity and respect.
As Idahoans, the nature of who we are inspires us to work together, especially during challenging times. There is something in the Idaho spirit that drives us to overcome adversity and move ahead toward a common cause. As we are navigating through the challenges currently facing our state, I believe it will continue to be Idahoans who demonstrate examples of using kindness and gratitude to define the character of our people.
On behalf of the members of the Idaho State Police, thank you. We are proud to serve our visitors, our businesses, our public safety partners, and the 1.8 million people who call Idaho home.
