Likes park police in Oregon parks

Published: Thursday, July 5, 2012 4:40 p.m. CST

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank the Oregon Park District for having park police officers patrolling our parks.

My 13-year-old enjoys going to the skate park, and I can rest easy knowing that it is being monitored for drugs, alcohol, and bullying.

I do go check on my child when he is at the skate park, and two out of three times the park police officer is there watching the area.

So thanks again for keeping our parks a wonderful place for all kids to enjoy and for us parents to not have to worry quite as much.
