Neighborhood watch programs in Lafayette provided food to officers as a thank you for their service.

According to LPD, organizers of two neighborhood watch program, Stacie Devereaux, Robert Smith and Myron Fonseca showed their appreciation to the Lafayette Police Department and first responders by supplying food to them.

The two programs provided meals for both day and night-shift workers at the police department as well as Louisiana State Police in Lafayette

The money pooled from their neighborhood watch programs to provide the meals. They partnered with Drago's to serve LPD and with State Police, they partnered with Poche's

They say they love working with the first responders in their community to collaborate in keeping their areas safe.

"Support your police officers when you can because they are supporting your communities and neighborhood watches." Devereaux said.

The two work closely with law enforcement as part of the community relations committee for the Lafayette Police Department
