Letter: Grateful for the Aspen Police Department

Grateful for the Aspen Police Department

In reading about recent national events involving police, I have been so grateful for our Aspen Police Department and its emphasis on community policing and supporting the community. We are so lucky to have Richard Pryor as our police chief, with his kindness and care for his community, along with great professionalism. We are also lucky to have the city management team and elected officials supporting and promoting this attitude. I hope the recent event will be an opportunity our students, parents and community will use to encourage taking responsibility for one’s actions. Thanks to the city of Aspen and its Police Department!
