From Niesha Lofing:
Sacramento police will be honored today at an appreciation event hosted by the Target Corp.
The breakfast and barbecue event will take place at the police department's south area facility, 5303 Franklin Blvd., Sgt. Matt Young stated in a news release.
Target has given more than $8,000 to the Sacramento Police Foundation to assist with a variety of community programs, including National Night Out, Safe Night and Kops N Kids.
Chief Rick Braziel will accept a check this afternoon on behalf of the foundation in recognition of Target's contributions, Young said.
Target has partnered with local, state and federal law enforcement through an initiate called Target and Blue, which provides agencies with equipment, grants, training and forensic support.
