We have selectively and diligently put together, trained and equipped the finest team of officers and staff to serve our community. We take particular pride in our level of service and the professional and caring approach that our Department brings to the citizens of Norwalk. Today I was fortunate to attend the graduation ceremony for this year's Des Moines Police Academy and to recognize Officer Von Briese from Norwalk. It reminded me of why people become police officers; not because it's eas3# not because everyone agrees with you and certainly not to build personal wealth. Some days are better than others, some calls are better than others and some endings are better than others. People become police officers because they want to make a difference and to live lives that matter. The po- lice shield is a symbol from long ago when mounted knights donned armor and armed themselves. They rode out to dispense justice, right wrongs and protect those in need. In some ways things have not changed so much; in other ways they have greatly. It is reassuring that the quality and integrity of the people wearing the badge has not changed. Shortly we will publish our year-end report for the public's review. The major projects we have underway today are the review of school safety plans with the Norwalk School District staff, solving the thefts from vehicles, changing our computer system and com- pleting the Westcom transition. We wanted to take this opportunity to acknowledge our gratitude. I Clrp rAllE BANK Purchase or Refmance your home today! 15 Year: iRate /o APR 30 Year: I % Rate , % APR INSURANCE SERVICES m
