To the Editor:

I would like to thank our Killeen Police Department for the citizens forum on Jan. 12.

Our police officers did an excellent job updating us on current crime information in Killeen.

Interim Police Chief Margaret Young did an excellent job discussing the pros and cons of moving our jail to Bell County. I enjoyed the Crime Stoppers presentation.

I was glad to see the KISD chief of police in attendance to answer the concerns of parents.

 I am a proud graduate of the Killeen Citizens Police Academy and I recommend that everyone interested in how our police department works to enroll in the academy.

I urge all residents of Killeen to take advantage of these forums by attending and bringing your concerns.

While we are there, be sure to thank our police officers for putting their lives on the line for us every day.
