We all lose, however, if we give in to anger and frustration and let it divide us. We have made progress to improve the way communities and police work together in our state, and we’re beginning to see a path to positive change tso everyone shares in the safety and success they deserve. When we are strong enough together to turn frustration into progress we take another step up the higher path”
