Make no mistake; your leadership during this calamity has been the difference. Your willingness and ability to rally your members, other employees and the public, both in Virginia Beach and across the nation, has provided a template to law enforcement leaders facing political bodies with similar budgetary challenges. Your actions serve as a fine example to police organizations everywhere. I commend you for them.
