Good things about Columbus Police Department

Published 9:34am Wednesday, June 5, 2013

To the editor:

First I would like to start by saying that after all of the criticisms Columbus Police Department has received in the Bulletin lately I would like to say some good things about them. I would first like to ask a question to the people that have put things in this paper about our police department: Really? You have nothing better to do then bash the good men of Columbus just because you were speeding or want to say things about the chief just because you don’t agree with what he is doing?

Chief (Chris) Beddingfield is a fine man and a great chief, and the men that work for him are the same. These men put a badge on every day they come to work knowing that this might be their last time seeing their families, and putting their lives on the line protecting you – the people that want to complain.
