Jan. 7 - Jan. 8, 2014

Today’s Good News
A man who recently moved to the city emailed the Department last week to thank and commend the officers for making the city a safe place to live, play and work. “I just want to pass along a thank you and congratulations for making this one of the safest cities I've lived in despite preconceived notions. I believe the officers on bikes around the Fan and surrounding areas have made a huge difference as well as updated lighting projects,” he wrote. “Of course, no city is without crime, but the strides made in fighting drug/violent crimes as well as theft and burglary have made this city immensely more attractive to newcomers such as myself. Please keep up the good work and thank you again!”
