Redwood City is well known for honoring some well deserving groups by declaring a celebratory month for them. Pride month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Women’s History Month are among many such cherished local traditions.

A group of Redwood City and San Mateo County residents and businesses would like to propose a Police Appreciation Month to start on August 15-September 15, 2020. Our police have worked incredibly hard in the last few months preserving law and order in our city and have done a wonderful job of balancing many competing interests of our diverse and active community. Men and women in blue uniform deserve to see our love and care.

The activities proposed include a police flag raising ceremony at the County Museum Plaza.

Also, a young local resident has proposed installing a wall of gratitude on the County Museum Plaza where people can come and write their message of thanks to our police force. We would also encourage local businesses to think of some ways to show their gratitude by offering free coffee, discounts or something else special. We will distribute “back the blue” lawn signs to put in the front yards to greet the police as they drive by. We welcome community suggestions as to what would be other appropriate ways to add to the Month’s festivities.

If you support this idea, please write us a short letter of support and send it to A letter on your organization’s letterhead would be great, but an email would also work. We will present it to the City Council shortly.
