Police serving St. James well

Parent Category: Editorials Written by Rodney Edwards Hits: 961

    A few weeks ago, past St. James Mayor Jim White and I were reminiscing about a special interview we conducted while serving as city councilmen on the Police Commission for two open officer positions. At the time, the force seemed to be suffering from lack of leadership and morale. One candidate, a young web designer, caught our eye. It was then we met, and with the other members of the commission, hired officer Ron Jones.

    Reflecting, Jim and I celebrated how over time as sergeant, lieutenant, and now chief, Chief Jones and his officers have transformed the Saint James Police Deparment into one of the finest, most professional small town departments in the area and state. Speaking on behalf of the citizens of Saint James, I want to thank Chief Jones and the Saint James Police Department for their selfless service to our community every day and night.
