Today I spent some time with our friends at the CMPD Central Division Office. It’s always nice to catch-up with Lt. Cunningham and Officer Rowland. I did get to meet the new members of the leadership team and just hang out with the Police and chat. It seems all is well and solid plans are in place for the Fourth of July celebration in uptown.
Tomorrow there will be no rest for the men and women of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. And, as we do each year, the First Ward Community Fund delivered a large supply of Gatorade for those who will be on duty. We think all of Uptown is our neighborhood and all of the Central Division Officers are our friends. We hope they have a safe day and hope that our gift helps to make the day more bearable.
