KNOXVILLE (WATE) – Senior Financial Group wanted to make sure Knoxville officers know the community is behind them.

Along with several of their community partners, Senior Financial Group hosted a luncheon for officers Friday. The group said they feel that the Knoxville community has a very positive relationship with the Knoxville Police Department and wanted to host the luncheon to express their gratitude. They said sometimes it is easy to forget how dangerous the job is.

“Realize that they have a dangerous job… and sometimes a thankless job, but we certainly recognize the hard work and effort and sometimes the risk they put in,” said Jerold Johnson, president of Senior Financial Group.

East Tennessee Personal Care, Senior Solutions Management Group and Mac’s Pharmacy also took part in the lunch event.
