Stranger honors K-9 officers with flag tribute

A resident of Coweta County left a wonderful tribute to the county's K-9 officers over the weekend that warmed the hearts of local police.

In a photo taken by Coweta Patrol Secretary Rachel Gresham 10 flags are placed at the graves of the 10 K-9 officers who, in the sheriff's office's words, have gone "to patrol the streets of gold."

Officials don't know who placed the flags, but they are thankful for the respect that was paid.

It was a small gesture, but it made such an impact on the deputies, especially those who work as handlers with their K-9 partners.

"To know that the residents of Coweta remember them makes our hearts so happy," the sheriff's office said.
