To the Editor,
Thank you very much for printing the content of the James V. Stewart, Elk’s Award that I recently received. I have received numerous favorable comments regarding your newspaper’s recognition. I was honored and humbled by the award and noted that it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of many over the years, including family, friends, police officers who gave above and beyond and made sacrifices because they believed in us, citizens who wrote letters and attended meetings on our behalf, and those elected officials who voted for needed improvements.
The Police Department, its leadership and officers have met my expectations and beyond. I am extremely proud of all of them and the way they perform their duties with the safety and protection of our residents foremost in their minds.
Stephen G. Scurti
Police Chief (Ret.) Stony Point
