To the editor:

We should all be proud of our sheriff’s department and our police department and all those who enforce our laws and protect us. These people are second to none. We have the best law enforcement departments in the whole state of Texas. These people put their lives on the line every day for our protection. Sheriff Bobby Grubbs and his deputies put in many hours along side of Police Chief Virgil Cowin and his officers and detectives. They spend many hours involved in investigations that lead to many arrests of criminals to keep our community safe.

We never hear about the positive side of law enforcement, and I believe it is time for us to say “Thank you all” for all you have done and are doing to make Brownwood a better place to live. I am proud to say my home is Brownwood, Texas. I am a Texan by choice also. God bless all of our law enforcement officers and keep them safe.
