BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Thanks but no thanks. That’s the word from the Boca Raton Police Department — and we hear similar from other agencies — when it comes to area businesses offering to drop off food for first responders. While — under normal circumstances — an offer of food would be appreciated, first responders are exceptionally busy right now, and want to continue to socially distance.
From Boca Raton Police:
“The Boca Raton Police Department is not accepting any food donations. This is to protect our officers from outside contamination and also to avoid gatherings. We encourage anyone wishing to help to donate to local food banks. Support for the Boca Raton Police Department can be directed to the Boca Raton Police Foundation. http://www. https://bocaratonpolicefoundation.org/“
Several agencies are reaching out after BocaNewsNow.com reported on Delray Beach Police welcoming in a local businessman under Federal Indictment who was delivering nutrition bars. The man was given access to the inside of the police department, brought a camera crew, and posed with a Delray Beach Police captain — all in the midst of the Coronavirus social distancing rules.
