Police supporters surprise officers’ kids with $5,000 in college scholarships
Five Franklin Police Officers’ kids who are heading to college this fall were awarded $1,000 scholarships, last night, by an organization that exists solely to show support for Franklin Police Officers and their families.

The Law Enforcement Assistance Partnership (LEAP) is a volunteer-run, nonprofit organization made up of graduates of the Franklin Police Department Citizens Police Academy, each of whom remains steadfast in their dedication to supporting Franklin Police Officers.
Only two lucky winners were supposed to receive last night’s scholarships. After calling all five applicants to the stage, however, LEAP surprised everyone in attendance by announcing that all five were being awarded college scholarships.
The men and women of the Franklin Police Department are humbled by the continual outpouring of support shown to us by the people who make up this extraordinary organization.
