Two local Albany sisters came to the Linn County Sheriff’s Office yesterday (July 21st, 2016) bringing with them sweet treats and thanks to our deputy sheriffs. The sisters, 8-year-old Marissa Robinson and 7-year-old Khloe spent three days holding up signs right across the street from Fred Meyers in Albany to show support for police officers. The sisters, joined by their grandmother Michelle Maddux-Robinson, were encouraging drivers to stop and put a blue line (made from painters tape) across their vehicle’s rear windshield, to show support for law enforcement. Maddux-Robinson told Sheriff Riley they put blue tape on 95 vehicles, and one wheelchair. The sisters also collected $387 in donations to purchase the goodies for local police officers.
Stops were made at the Albany Police Department, and the local Oregon State Police barracks, where the girls handed out treats and thanks of appreciation to officers.
