LMPD's Major Crimes Division distributes turkeys to vets

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police were on an important mission to help those down on their luck Tuesday morning as LMPD's Major Crimes Division delivered Thanksgiving meals to military veterans.

"Everywhere from Afghanistan all the way back to Vietnam conflict, so we're going to load it up, everybody is going through transition right now," said Sgt. William Hibbs.

Officers with the Major Crimes Division met at LMPD Headquarters this morning to load the truck with canned goods and more than 100 turkeys. It's a partnership between LMPD and Kentucky Harvest.

The food was all delivered to veterans at Interlink Counseling Services on Preston Highway. The organization helps homeless veterans get back on their feet.

"This is a great day, we don't get a chance to get out," Sgt. Hibbs. "When we are leaving the office, it is always in response to something horrible or critical, so this is a really good day for us. It's not very often that we get to do this, so when we do...we take full advantage of it."

This is the fourth year of the partnership between Louisville Metro Police and Kentucky Harvest.
