A crowd of about 50 people attended a luncheon in Dublin provided by the city on Thursday to honor its police department.

The city of Dublin hosted a luncheon Thursday to honor the service of its police officers. The gathering was held at the Little Church on Grafton Street Events Center and was attended by approximately 50 people including most of the Dublin Police Department.

Prior to the luncheon, Dublin Police Chief Michael Jennings said, “We really appreciate this gesture of support and the people who put it together like Rhonda Williams [city secretary] and Nancy Wooldridge [city administrator.]

Just prior to the meal, Wooldridge addressed the gathering and said, “Thank you all for coming out to support the Dublin police. This is just a small way to thank our police for putting their lives on the line for us every day.”

She added, “With the sad state of things that have been going on in the cities across the country and the world, it makes us so thankful for the hard work our Dublin police do to keep us all safe."
