Pittsfield officers working the front desk got quite the surprise on Friday.
The Police Department posted on their Facebook Page that officers working the desk heard a commotion in their front lobby.
"We went running out to see what the fuss was about," the Department said.
Nine children were holding a sign, thanking the police officers for keeping them safe.
Police say the children were from the Gladys Allen Brigham Community Center in Pittsfield.
Today is National 'Thank a Police Officer Day'.
The children said they wanted to show their appreciation.
