Letter: CPD Promotions

By John G Waddell

I would like to commend CPD and the City of Columbia for recognizing the officers that have taken responsibility for leading the Police Department and insuring community safety and protection for its citizens and businesses.

Everyone likes to believe they live in a safe and secure Town, County, and State. Through the media and public records the challenges to these perceptions show necessity in developing a progressive law enforcement program. Both the City of Columbia and Adair County are taxed with virtually every type of crime that can be imagined.

Prevention and commitment by dedicated law enforcement professionals working together is the only way to control drug related crimes and the advent of criminal gangs. Every citizen is responsible to get involved and support law enforcements efforts and "Crime Prevention Programs".

The Kentucky State Police have a Confidential Crime Reporting Hotline that does not require anyone reporting crimes or that have knowledge about crimes committed or suspected to identify themselves at anytime. In order to make these efforts productive, citizens need to become involved. After all, the number of "Criminals" have always out numbered "Law Enforcement". Do your part to make it safer for everyone in Adair County, Ky. After all you do "Call it Home".
