Keeping Others as the Focus - Our March Hero!
Renfroe Outdoor, in conjunction with the Savannah Police Department, is proud to announce our newest honoree in the Savannah Heroes program! Each month, we will highlight a member of the local police force on our extensive digital billboard network for their outstanding work in serving and improving our communities.
This month we are proud to spotlight Officer Shane Shepard!
From the Savannah Police Department:
Officer Shane Shepard has been with the Savannah Police Department since 2021 and is currently assigned to Central Precinct. Although he is early in his law enforcement career in Savannah, he has already displayed his caring nature and drive to make a positive impact on the community he serves.
On Feb. 1, 2022, officers responded to the Budget Inn for a dispute between sisters. One of the sisters, along with her children, was having to leave the room. Officer Shepard, wanting to assist the mother and alleviate her concerns after shelter, reached into his own pocket to rent the woman a hotel room at a different location. His gracious and kind act ensured that a mother and her children would have adequate shelter and a safe place to sleep.
About the initiative:
Renfroe Outdoor is proud to partner with the Savannah Police Department in an initiative to honor our local heroes. Each month, this program will highlight an outstanding officer in our community chosen by the Savannah PD and recognize them across town with our digital billboard network.
It is of the opinion of the management of Renfroe Outdoor that most media outlets are too eager to cover the wrong stories relating to the police. While all public officials should be held accountable for their actions, there are far more positives that can be said about the local police than the negative. With this program, Renfroe Outdoor hopes to help foster a growing positive relationship between our citizens and the men and women who put themselves in danger to protect them each day.
