Appreciation for police

Dear Editor:The Downey Police Department deserves the heartfelt thanks of the citizens of Downey for a superb job in the recent horrible murder of three innocent people. Their almost instant response was so gratifying to this 59-year resident. If the people need any more proof of the wonderful services we are provided, I have to say this was absolutely outstanding. Due to their great work, the Downey PD was able to apprehend the shooter within 48 hours. Brilliant work and brilliant follow through. As a next door neighbor to the crime, I am so relieved that I don't have to worry each time I go out the door like I would have if they had not apprehended the presumed shooter so quickly. It would have been a nightmare to us all to think the person responsible for this horrible action to still be on the loose. I have been in business in Downey for 40 years and I am so proud of the Downey Police Department. In closing, I highly recommend electing Alex Saab and Michael Murray to help this city continue on its proud path. Dean Wright Downey
