The Fort Myers Police Department (FMPD) in Florida wanted to thank health care workers on the front lines of the pandemic in a big way. To show appreciation, police officers arranged their cruisers in the shape of a heart in the outside parking lot of Lee Memorial Hospital. Through the flickering lights, officers held up letters inside the heart spelling "FMPD Thanks You." "We appreciate each of the hard-working medical professionals and wanted to simply say ‘thank you.' It was a pretty amazing and personal turnout, and we couldn't be more proud to work side by side with you, Lee Health," the FMPD posted on its Facebook page, along with a video and photos of the moment.
