Thank you, Chief DiSanti, for protecting and serving us. Sometimes we take our safety for granted because we feel so protected by you and your officers. We often forget that danger lurks in the most unexpected places. Let's remember that our police force puts itself on the line for the community every single day. I appreciate you, your officers and the challenging work that you do on our behalf. Thank you and God bless you!
