Sheriff’s Dept. deserve thanks

To the editor: Due to a robbery of my house and surroundings I have become quite familiar with some members of the Crook County Sheriff’s Department. These dedicated folks deserve more than a pat on the back but would probably be happy with that. The perseverance and investigative skills along with cooperation of the law enforcement organizations have convinced me that we have a first class bunch of folks doing their best to bring not such first class people to justice. So often they get negative talk (from those who don’t really know what they do) but we now know what they do and every chance we get we’re going to spread positive words about them and urge you to do the same. Thanks to their determination we hope to get some thieves where they belong so people will feel safe. Our community should realize how we would feel without someone to call when this kind of thing happens. Donald (Don) Edwards Prineville
