Union City cops receive thanks; host tip-a-cop event for Special Olympics

Got a bit of information worth passing on:

1: A woman walked up to a member of the Union City Police Department’s community oriented policing unit in the last day or two and gave them a card, a token of appreciation for all law enforcement officers in light of the killings in Oakland over the weekend. The card is now being shown to officers at the police department.  According to a different officer, others in the community have been verbally showing their appreciation over the last few days.

2: Police are hosting a tip-a-cop event at Applebees from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight (Tuesday, Match 24) to benefit the Special Olympics of Northern California. Applebees is located at 30980 Dyer St.
