COLUMBUS POLICE DEPARTMENT
his is the timeof year wheneveryone hasan opportunity tosay thank you to allourarea first responders. This isawonderful gestureandIthank theCommercialDispatch for print-ing this editionevery year. It givespeople in the com-munity a chance to reflect on allthehard work these courageousmen and women do every day.It often goes unnoticed, but amajority of the peo-ple in the Columbusand Lowndes County area are committedto supporting our law enforcement per-sonnel. Without thissupport, it would beimpossible for thepolice department todo their job. It is sat-isfying to work in anarea where the com-munity is solidly behind the policedepartment. Day after day, I amapproached by citizens whoshare with me their prayers andconcerns for the men and women of the Columbus PoliceDepartment, and I feel honoredto be a part of such a specialteam. It goes without sayingthat in a free society a govern-ment, “for the people, by thepeople”, must have the popu-lace support. The community sets thetone in regard to what will betolerated and accepted in socie-ty. And, I feel comfortable tosay that we have a very low tol-erance for crime in our commu-nity. The citizens do not thinkthat it is okay for people to lie,cheat and steal from one anoth-er. We are not tolerant of vio-lence and destruction. We want to live in a community where it is safe to work, live and play. Iam proud to reside in a commu-nity where these values areheld in such high regard.In turn, it is important for a police department to be astransparent as it possibly canbe.In light of this belief, theColumbus Police Department istrying diligently to be as openas we can be without jeopardiz-ing the safety of the community and our personnel. The depart-ment is publishing a monthly newsletter, “The Shield,” that isavailable online at our website,or you can be placed on our mailing list by calling theColumbus Police Department at 662-244-3528. The depart-ment will be glad to add you toour e-mail list! We are commit-ted to sharing all the depart-mental information we can withour dedicated citizens. The last three years havebeen a wonderful and excitingtime for me. The ColumbusPolice Department has showngreat growth during this timeand the citizens and police per-sonnel should be commended,above all, for this success. Withhard working employees, and a committed community, the sky is the limit for our joint suc-cess!
