Joy Church International last Wednesday gave each Mt. Juliet police officer a new winter coat.

The gift of 75 coats embossed with the Mt. Juliet police patch each included a $50 gift certificate just in time to keep officers on their beats warm and comfortable during the cold winter months.

Police Chief James Hambrick expressed his appreciation and gratitude for the gifts in a Facebook video.

“We want to say God bless you and a big thank you for your generosity and the gift that you’ve given our men and women here at the Mt. Juliet Police Department,” Hambrick said. “Your commitment to community and to our police department and this city is just outstanding.”
