Thanks, from Aspen’s finest

Dear Editor:

From all of us at the Aspen police department, I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for hosting the Law Enforcement Dinner on Thursday evening. The dinner, held in recognition of National Law Enforcement Memorial Day, was a reminder of how fortunate we police are to work in a relatively safe area. Sadly, 181 law enforcement officers around the country lost their lives in the line of duty in 2007.

We appreciate the support and trust you and the community place in us as police officers, and we will always strive to live up to your expectations.

Richard Pryor

Police chief
