Local law enforcement officers will be able to enjoy a complimentary meal at KBob’s Steakhouse on Tuesday, thanks to three Dumas businessmen who want to say thank you.
Jay Bhakta said he and his brothers, Pri and Paresh, and K’Bob’s manager Ruben Briseno came up with the idea after discussing how they could show support for the officers and tell them they’re appreciated.
“We appreciate what they do for us, and this small gesture is the least we can do for all they do to help serve and protect our community,” Jay said. “We want to say a simple thank you.”
The officers will be given vouchers for a chicken fried steak or fried chicken dinner.
“The recent events that have been happening in the country are troubling,” Jay said. “We want our officers to know we appreciate their hard work for keeping us safe. They go to work everyday to serve us, and you never know what’s going to happen. People take that for granted. There’s so much negativity toward law enforcement, so we want to acknowledge them and support them.”
