We want to thank and recognize the entire Howell Police Department for their efforts over the last few weeks.

The Howell officers created two very special moments recently. The first, was for a young boy, Jake Honig, who has been battling brain cancer since the age of 2. The police officers had such an affinity for Jake and the tough road that he has been on, that they donated a toy motorcycle to him. Jake was also made an honorary police officer on the force.

The second act of kindness centered around the Howell Police helping a group of Marines get to Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakhurst to catch their flight for deployment overseas. 70 members of the U.S. Marines Corp. were unable to get their point of deployment and through the quick thinking of the Howell Police, got permission from the board of education to uses school buses to transport the Marines to their destination.

For their efforts, the Howell Police Department and Chief Andrew Kudrick are this week's Blue Friday honorees. We can't thank them enough for not only making a young boy's day but for also assisting out military.
