APD should hire Hooper

Dear Editor:

Is there any chance that Troy Hooper could fill the recent vacancy at the Aspen Police Department? He’s got the time off now to train, and he’s already up to speed riding in the patrol car, and he knows how to operate the in-vehicle recording devices and such. He knows the drill already, and he’d look great in the uniform. A couple of hours out at the shooting range, and a crash course with the radar gun and the Taser and he’s ready to go!

This may be a solution we can all agree on as a community. Just make sure he’s on the clock during Jazz Fest.

Lo Semple
