And a message from the City of Bradford Police Department:

The Thanksgiving Holiday is tomorrow and this is one of the biggest travel days of the year. Remember to travel safely and buckle up. If you are going out with friends and family, designate a driver. No family wants an open seat at the table tomorrow.
Remember to be thankful for what you have and being with loved ones. Thousands of Police Officers, Firefighters, Medical Professionals and Armed Forces will be away from their families while serving their community or country. With that being said, the Officers of Bradford Police are thankful for the community that we serve. Take a minute and tell us what you are thankful for. We’ll start.
Thank you to the community for being so supportive!
