As a recent graduate of the Cape Girardeau Police Department Citizens Police Academy, I want to thank chief Carl Kinnison and his team of professional police officers for the job well done. Each presentation was clear and informative and demonstrated the pride each officer takes in his job, his department and the city.
Residents of Cape Girardeau can rest assured that this department is operating with modern equipment and techniques and at a high level of efficiency with limited staff and budget.
I would encourage anyone to go through the Citizens Police Academy when it becomes available, for it will give you new respect for these brave men and women who protect our lives and property. They deserve the same thanks and respect we give our military veterans.
WILLIAM A. WHITLOCK, Cape Girardeau
