To the Editor:

I am writing to you to give praise to the Reynoldsburg Police Department.

Since Reynoldsburg has had a new chief of police, I have noticed a huge increase in police presence all over Reynoldsburg. At a time in our society when preventing crime sometimes is futile, deterring it becomes the best method.

If potential criminals know that a police officer is on patrol nearby, they may think twice about committing a crime in Reynoldsburg. If Reynoldsburg gets a reputation for having an aggressive police department, tough on crime and misconduct, I know the quality of life for both Reynoldsburg citizens and workers will be greatly improved.

Thanks again to Chief O'Neill and all the police on patrol.
