I really appreciate the hard and mostly unrewarding work all law officers perform. It must be very frustrating from them to continually arrest people, only to see them back out on the streets in little to no time. I was not trying to degrade what a fine group of officers in the Precinct 5 Constable's office. I publicly thank our law officers for their service every chance I get.
