“On any given day, law enforcement is the front line of defense in our community, but not today,” Warren said. “Today, it's the doctors and nurses protecting our way of life, and we wanted to show our appreciation to them by honoring them with a drive by and a salute. We are forever grateful for their sacrifice.”

The stream of marked sheriff’s vehicles was greeted by cheering hospital workers as they visited WellStar Cobb Hospital in Austell and WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta.
