HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – Adults and children across the Grand Strand and the Pee Dee used a sweet gesture on Wednesday to show their appreciation for area law enforcement, with sweet being the operative word.

A local woman organized an event called “Cookies for Cops,” which was put together to show the Myrtle Beach Police Department how much the community appreciates the officers’ service.

Many adults and children showed up to the MBDP at 12 p.m., Wednesday, and gave the officers cookies, brownies and other snacks.

The children also made drawings and colorings as a form of appreciation.

“Originally, I wanted to have a conversation with my kids about how important the servicemen and women are and how hard their job is and we should thank them and show kindness because some people aren’t,” said event organizer Alex Davis. “It was just as simple as that.”

The gesture was not limited to just the MBPD. Other departments within the region – the Horry County Police Department, the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office and the Hartsville Police Department – took to Facebook on Wednesday to thank the citizens who stopped by to deliver delicious treats.
