Letter: Local law enforcement is worthy of our support
Sheriff Kent Wilkening went before Nobles County commissioners asking to replace the night sergeant position internally. If a qualified applicant is hired to fill the position, the Sheriff's Office would be left one deputy short in its 12-deputy department.
I, as a resident of Worthington, thank Kent Wilkening, the Drug Task Force, the Worthington Police Department and the staff of Prairie Justice Center. If one wants to see what this department is up against, start a neighborhood watch. Also, attend the next Worthington Police Department Citizens Academy. Yes, we have a tight budget, but we also like protection.
I thank you all at Prairie Justice Center.
