MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - A retired Douglas County sheriff’s deputy is among a number of individuals across the country who are stepping up to express support and gratitude for local law enforcement at a time the nation’s police community feels embattled.

John Munk of Gardnerville stood in front of the Minden Post Office this week with a sign reading, “God Bless Law Enforcement.”

His display comes on the heels of the execution-style killings of two New York City officers as well as a series of officer-involved shootings.

Munk told the Record-Courier it’s disheartening how people are treating law enforcement. He says he wanted to do his part to show what a great community they live in. He says he was pleased with the response he received from passing motorists who honked to show their support.
