Re: the Nov. 24 letter to the editor "TPD service needs improvement."
The letter writer may not be aware that loud music on a Sunday morning is a seriously low priority for our underpaid officers. Hopefully he realizes how critically short-staffed squads are. Our officers are leaving TPD for other, higher-salaried law enforcement positions with other agencies. Next time the writer is inconvenienced by the band rehearsing, do not call police and waste our officers time. Our department does duly protect and serve. Our TPD officers deserve a raise.
