After reading the opinion letter about the Nacogdoches police, the writer did not know the facts nor has any firsthand knowledge of our Nacogdoches Police Department. For six weeks, of this year, I attended the Nacogdoches Citizens’ Police Academy, and for the past 7 years I have been a neighborhood crime watch coordinator.

I also have had four years in the U.S. Air Force as a security policeman. To top it off I graduated from SFA with a degree in criminal justice. All of the writer’s questions could have been easily answered if and only if the writer had taken the time to meet with our chief of police or any of the officers that work within the department.
