To Whom it May Concern,

My wife and I own two properties in Dayton, Ohio. One is in very close proximity to the Oregon District. Though the response to the mass shooting that took place Sunday morning by Dayton police officers is almost beyond belief, we were not the least bit surprised and the reason follows. Due to issues that occur in the neighborhoods where we own our properties, we have frequent contact with Dayton police officers. In EVERY case, the professionalism and character displayed by Dayton officers has been amazing.

Several months ago, my daughter moved into the property near the Oregon District, and to be truthful, I was skeptical about her safety in that neighborhood. And indeed, issues occured. But the quality of policing displayed by the Dayton department has since put most of those fears to rest. Based on what we have experienced, we have to believe that departments like Dayton set a standard for the rest of the country.

For lack of a more powerful expression, we thank you.

PS: We have set up a lunch fund for Dayton police officers at the Oregon Express in the Oregon District. Dayton officers (and law enforcement people in general) can receive a complimentary lunch there until the fund is depleted.
