I am glad that our police are on the ball and take crime seriously in our neighborhoods. The economic upheaval has shifted some of the less desirable into our community and it's important that we let them know that they can live here but THEY need to adapt to OUR way of life. Part of the problem in some of the bigger cities is that they let the little stuff slide because they don't have enough people to deal with it, that only leads people to think they can get away with more and more. Our Community police officers deserve our respect and thanks for a job well done! Thank you for making our communities as safe as possible during difficult times!
