Troy Police Awards Ceremony
Yesterday, the Troy Police Dept. held its annual awards ceremony at the Franklin Plaza in Troy. The Chiefs honored and praised a number of its fine Officers ranging from investigation to heroic acts while on duty. The Neigborhood Assns. and other Committees in the City work closely with the Police Dept. and many of these officers, some we know, some we don't. But there are many residents in our Community who do NOT know their Police force, some by name in the paper others only by face. I have always felt that the Community and Taxpayers should be included in this Award Ceremony, to witness, and offer our congratulations and to be able to SEE and meet those honored, who serve our neighborhoods. My question is: if there were a small fee charged to cover the cost of the meal at the venue where the ceremony is held, would you attend? Right now there is no avenue for the general public to attend because......THAT'S THE WAY IT IS!!!!
