What I never witnessed, not even once, was a loss of control or lack of professionalism. Even when antagonized, which was unfortunately all too common, (the) officers maintained control while exhibiting restraint that comes with training, experience and supervision.
I want to particularly note Cpl. Brian Huff, K-9 officer and Sgt. Chris Webb for the most recent ride I took with them. I watched them as they patrolled the city. Two of your newer officers were on duty that night so I got to watch them in their capacity as supervisors. They executed their duties in an exemplary manner and provided instruction and helpful supervision. Mt. Vernon is well served by these two officers, as well as the rest of (the) department.
... It is an honor to serve on your council knowing we have a professional police department protecting our citizens and our city.
