THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) — The Thomasville Police Department gave a heartwarming surprise to Archbold Memorial Hospital in recognition of Nurses Week.

Monday night, 14 police cars drove to the hospital with their lights flashing, pulled into the parking lot and formed a heart with all the vehicles!

The officers also got out and formed a line within the heart, waving at the hospital workers who were watching out their windows.

Corporal Crystal Parker of TPD's Community Relations Division, says they're just happy to be able to do something special for those who are the pulse of the community.

Parker said they want the nurses to know they are not forgotten and they are appreciated.

"We wanted to do something as law enforcement," said Parker, "and what better way than with blue lights and a heart?"

Parker says they practiced for several hours to get the angles right, so that it would be perfect when they got to the hospital.
