First and foremost, I would like to begin by stating that I have not always had a good image for our local police department.

Although I have never had a true encounter with our department, the slight contact I have had was not always the outcome I thought it should have been.

But on the occasion when my family absolutely needed them a couple of weeks ago to report the robbery in progress of a local establishment on the west side of town, they showed their true colors.

Let me say the effort and the professionalism of all the officers we encountered that morning was nothing short of exemplary.

This city should be very proud of the type of professionals we are blessed to have serving this community.

Their speedy response from the officers and the way the call was answered, along with the information provided to 911, resulted in not only the arrest of perpetrators of this crime, but who was allegedly responsible for two other break-ins that morning.

Again, I want to make our appreciation known in a public way. Those officers know who they are and you have a very appreciative family in Columbus this day.

Thank you.
