St. Peter’s North Intermediate and South Elementary took a few minutes to thank St. Peter Police Department and Nicollet County Sheriff’s Office on Sept. 16. At North, students gave St. Peter police a banner as part of its video announcement. It can be seen here:, beginning at about 4:12.

At South, representatives of each class gave Sheriff David Lange or Police Officer Dave Aprin a sign with a hand print and the whole classes’ signatures.

Sept. 17 is National Thank a Police Officer Day.
