GATESVILLE — Police officers, sheriff’s deputies and jailers in Coryell County were treated to freshly baked cookies Tuesday in observance of National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.
Brandy Johnson, county crime victims’ services coordinator, and members of Survivors for Justice, a crime victims’ support group, delivered Cookies for Cops to morning and evening shifts of law enforcement officers in Gatesville and Copperas Cove as an expression of thanks.
Melissa Stroop, a survivor of the 2009 shooting at Fort Hood, will be the keynote speaker at a ceremony on the courthouse lawn at 4 p.m. Thursday. Her remarks will be followed by a balloon release.
