I just read in the paper about the Granite City Police Officer being charged by his own department for stealing. How tough is that, to charge one of your own. This guy stole $17,000 over the past years, and then retires before it is known about the thefts. What a great job for the Police to go ahead and charge this guy even though he was gone from the department. I hear and read how people think the police cover up their wrong doings, but this seems to be a fine example of policing up the police.

To the Police, keep up the good work and stay safe!!! Although I can't imagine a police officer stealing, let alone from his own department, it does make me proud to know the police in our town will not tolerate or hide this type of behavior.
