If you see a police officer, thank a police officer.
That's the message the group Concerns of Police Survivors is urging the public to do Tuesday as part of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.
Many police agencies, politicians and the public tweeted out their support for police throughout the day Tuesday.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office honored a deputy who was shot and killed in 1924 while attempting to arrest fugitives.
On this #LawEnforcementAppreciationDay we remember true Heroes like PBSO Deputy FREDERICK A. BAKER who died today, 94 years ago in 1924. "To Protect and Serve Was His Oath, To Honor Him is Our Duty" pic.twitter.com/L5D6gGUm1k

Just a few of the awesome men & women serve the citizens of Boynton Beach. If you see a police officer today, take a minute to thank them for their dedication and bravery. #NationalLawEnforcementAppreciationDay#LEAD2018#bbpdpride@cityofboynton@BoyntonCtyMgrpic.twitter.com/ASEqNFo7p5
