My thanks and appreciation go to reporter Carol Percy for capturing the spirit and contribution of the Citizens-On-Patrol (COP) program (Feb. 21 News Messenger, page 13) to the city of Lincoln.
I would, however, like to clarify one point that mentioned Lincoln Hills ... “39 men and women in blue uniforms who make up the Lincoln Hills Citizens on Patrol COP volunteer team ...”
The Citizens-On-Patrol program is not connected with Del Webb Lincoln Hills. We are volunteers for the city of Lincoln Police Department and work under the direction of the chief of police. Guidance, on a daily basis, comes from him and his watch commanders.
The opportunity to let the citizens of Lincoln know who we are and what we do is most beneficial. Thank you, Carol Feineman, for your assistance in helping us spread the word about our great program.
Rich Ragan, Citizens-On-Patrol volunteer coordinator
