  1. I’m all for praising law enforcement that protects everyone’s safety & life.

    However, we continue to live in a situation of way too high Crime and great for the winner. We need more like the winners (or just able bodied competent Sheriff Dupities).

    No disrespect to the winning award recipient.

    But we still need more focus and assets for all the Losers, to wit: the people living in or visiting WeHo and fall victim to the high Crime rates of all type & degrees of seriousness.
