PEORIA (WEEK) – A familiar face brought lunch to Peoria law enforcement today, this time to the sheriff’s office.
Warith Muhammad, founder of “Don’t Start,” did the same thing with the Peoria Police Department last week.
Avanti’s helped with the sandwich delivery as they try to thank law enforcement for all they do.
“Don’t Start” encompasses a song, music video and a t-shirt.
“We definitely didn’t want to leave the sheriff’s department out of officer appreciation day,” he said. “And that’s why we’re here today.”
“And that means more to us than anything,” said Sheriff Brian Asbell. “It’s having some of these voices in our community understanding the role and ta law enforcement does and is often underappreciated.”
Asbell thinks this effort will help change viewpoints as he instructs his staff that they’re here to help their community members.
