Across the Valley, people are delivering random acts of kindness to police departments, thanking them for their work.

It all comes just days after five officers were killed and seven more wounded in Dallas.

The gifts, letters and food have been delivered in Phoenix, Glendale and Tempe--among others. They each carry similar messages, thanking cops and wishing them safety.

"They hear all the negative feedback that everybody gives but they don't hear the positive and that's what I wanted to show them today,” said Adina Cervantes.

Cervantes and her three children delivered muffins and cookies to the Phoenix Police precinct on Southern Avenue. She says it’s important for her to show support for cops, especially after what unfolded in Dallas.

That was the same sentiment for one woman in Peoria who called the police department and left a voicemail.

"I just wanted to call to tell you how much I appreciate knowing that we have a good police department and they're willing to watch out for us," the unidentified woman said, in part.

In Goodyear, police said officers have received cards, letters and treats, along with messages asking how to provide meals for police.

"We feel so touched by the outpouring of support that our wonderful citizens have shown the police department over the past few days...we feel truly blessed," the Goodyear Police Department said in a statement.
