I desire to express my appreciation for our Ft. Payne Policemen in this special week. The entire police force perform their duties in an exemplary manner. Police Chief David Davis was a superb choice made by the City Council this year. He was an investigator in Ft. Payne and then served with The DeKalb Sheriff’s Department.

Former Chief Randy Bynum was also efficient during the Black Lives Matter march also prior and after. There have been many riots across our beloved USA with many police departments being defunded. My suggestion is to increase the salaries of all Policeman as they put their lives on the line each day and are not sure they will return home.
