BELTRAMI COUNTY, MN -- In the wake of so much violence involving police officers, one Minnesota teen wants to make sure the ones near him know they're appreciated.

A deputy with the Beltrami County Sheriff's Office recently came home to find his lawn mowed. He also found a note from a 17-year-old named Brett.

In the note, Brett, who takes care of the lawn next door, explained that he mowed the deputy's lawn because, "Your job is hard enough and I think people like you should know that we are behind you guys."

To quote the sheriff's office in their Facebook post, 'Thanks Brett. You are awesome.'

Meantime, in the Houston area, the La Porte Police Department is thanking citizens for their random acts of kindness in the wake of violent attacks on police in Dallas and Baton Rouge.

La Porte PD took to Facebook to thank those who are making "the job of all LPPD members much more pleasant at a time of unrest in other communities."
