Opinion Letters Kudos to our sheriff's department

My wife and I just completed ten weeks at the "Macon County Sheriff's Department's Citizens Academy."

I am writing to commend Sheriff Holland and his dynamic staff for a job well done. The whole academy was presented in a very organized, professional manner.

I really got the impression that the entire staff of presenters truly believed in their mission of protecting the citizens of Macon County with compassion.

Unfortunately, we hear many negative stories in the media on a regular basis pertaining to crimes, law enforcement, etc.

The program we just experienced showed another side of our "law and order" operations in this area. I wish we could have additional programs similar to this one to show the dedication of our public officials to the general public.
