A Jasper County business said thank you to area law officers by treating them to an evening in their honor Thursday night. Southern Industrial Contractors, Inc. hosted its 8th annual, Law Enforcement Dinner at Bay Springs City Hall.

Law officers from Jasper, Smith, Jones and other surrounding counties were invited to eat steak and chicken dinners.

Fallen officers from our state were also remembered.

"We just want to show our appreciation to these guys," said Keith Blakeney, president of Southern Industrial Contractors, Inc. "They are the only thing between us and the whole system that really breaks down," Blakeney said.
