Here's something you don't see every day. At least not these days.

Someone recently gave the Lafayette Police Department a handwritten thank you note.

The police department sent a tweet with a picture of the the letter which is dated September 23.

It references an incident from the day before where several people stole a car and began shooting from its windows.

"I'm sure I don't know half of what it takes to make a great police department," the letter reads. "But Lafayette sure seems to have one. Thank you for your hard work, dedication and service."
