JEFFERSON DAVIS COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The congregation of one Jefferson Davis County church showed heartfelt appreciation for law officers Wednesday night. The members of Santee Baptist Church hosted the 8th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Service.

More than one dozen troopers from the Mississippi Highway Patrol attended.

They were joined by dozens of sheriff's deputies and police officers from various departments.

Mississippi's commissioner of public safety, Albert Santa Cruz, also attended.

"I think this is one of the best things law enforcement can have," Santa Cruz said. "It's fellowship, a get together and we really thank the Santee Baptist Church for putting this on," he said.

"We need to remind ourselves that these people sacrifice tremendously and we just want to say thank you for what they've done," said Tony Bagley, pastor of Santee Baptist Church.

The church members also served dinner for their guests.
