It's a job that many could not do; myself being one of those people. But it is a job that is necessary, and nobody does it better then the men and women in blue of the Augusta Police Department.

Today (Monday March 27) marks their 167 anniversary, and we here at TownSquare Media Augusta-Waterville salute and thank them for their never ending job of trying to keep our community safe.

If you see a man or woman from the APD today, take a second to shake their hand or thank them for their service. Of course, it doesn't just have to be today; you can do that everyday.

But on this special anniversary of protecting and serving, from all of us here at the radio stations, we say a big THANK YOU!
