Officers strive to protect and serve

A few weeks ago you wrote an editorial after a trooper was shot ("Preserve the dignity ... and respect the rights of all," Feb. 22). You also welcomed our three newly hired police officers. 

I'm a little late in sending this, but I wanted to thank you for your words. It means a great deal to us at the Boone Police Department to have the support of our community, and we realize it is a position of trust that we must continually earn. 

The challenge you laid out to serve with "honor, conscience, dignity, respect, integrity, honesty, courtesy and regard" is what we strive for as we protect and serve. 

I have provided all of our officers with a copy of your editorial.

Capt. Andy Le BeauBoone Police Department
