Eight new of Columbus finest were sworn in at a recent council meeting. These young men and women want to make a difference in our community. It is the citizens of Columbus, to make this difficult, stressful job as easy as possible. Become a responsible member of your neighborhood. Look out for each other (neighborhood watch), see something, say something. The only way the police can serve is with the public's help. From the news, the newly formed "Narcotics Task Force" is making its mark on the drug problem. Money well spent.
With the latest four arrested accused shooters, our streets are somewhat safer. The two trouble spots have been cleaned up in the city. We can, with the help of all, make Columbus the safe "Friendly City" again.
Seeing the eight young adults sworn in, gives me a new hope for our city.
Pray for our local leaders, support our men in "blue"; pray for each other. Together we can make a difference.
