To the Editor:
This week we celebrate and applaud the men and women of our police department who have sworn to "protect and serve" our community. Celebrating these exceptional people should, however, never be just a once-a-year event. Like so many who provide us 24/7/365 services, their presence is sometimes not noted, appreciated or recognized in real time. They work many times behind the scenes to assure events and just our daily activities in life are safe.
