SYRACUSE, Utah — Local law enforcement officials are praising the Syracuse High School drill team for performing a tribute to them.

“This dance is nothing short of amazing and if you get the opportunity to see this dance, good luck not shedding a tear,” Syracuse Police wrote in a Facebook post.

Cristina Powers, who coaches the drill team, has a special connection to law enforcement. Her husband is a Utah Highway Patrol trooper. She said one of the goals in putting together the performance was to help people appreciate the humanity of law enforcement officers.

“It was important to us to show another perspective, which is the heart of a policeman,” said Powers, whose daughter is a member of the drill team. “In a world of so much negativity, we wanted to share a message of support.”

Members of several agencies—including the Davis County Sheriff’s Office, Clearfield Police, the Utah Highway Patrol, Syracuse Police and Centerville Police—were present for the performance.
