LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officers braved the cold and snow to do some good for their community on Monday.
Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer's Give A Day service week is underway. On Monday morning, officers with the Louisville Metro Police Department's 8th Division worked to clean up St. Mary's Center, a community center for adults with intellectual disabilities.
About a dozen officers did yard work like laying mulch, and other small projects.
"We're gonna come back when the weather is more cooperative, and do some power washing," said Major Jamey Schwab, commander of LMPD's 8th Division. "Obviously we're out here fighting snow showers and 35 degree weather, but the officers love getting into this type of stuff. It's a great way for us to give back to the community. And obviously that's what the Give A Day week is all about."
