PBSO: The very good & the not-so-good at the Lake Worth City Commission meeting on February 7th.

Do you read this blog post from yesterday? Thank You for visiting and please scroll down.

First for the “very good”. At this meeting during presentations was this item: “A. Proclamation for Deputy Zuchowski”. It was extraordinarily uplifting to learn about all of PBSO’s work to control gang activity in the City vis-à-vis the recruitment of at-risk children into gangs. The proclamation by Mayor Pam Triolo begins at the 1:00 mark in the video:

“Make the Call Y’all”.

Now for the “not-so-good”. It was later at this Commission meeting, during public comment, a young lady in Lake Worth stated she emailed Cpt. Baer about recent graffiti activity and thanked him for taking care of that problem; and then she said this:

I wanted to remind everybody that we’re “Making the Call” [to PBSO] and the person that answers the call on the other end can make all the difference in the world. A lot of people have reported that they get the answer, “Yeah, we know about that.”, “We can’t do anything about that.” . . . At least listen. Take down the notes. Try to make a difference. Let people know that you appreciate their call. And that can give everybody a really good impression of PBSO. [applause follows from the crowd in attendance]
