I am proud of the work our law enforcement officers do on our behalf. These men and women provide an invaluable service to our community. They are good people. As a member of Payson City Council, I advocated for increased pay for our officers and for improved access to mental health services. Last year, I opened a bill file to address retirement concerns for our law enforcement. In addition to more community and political respect (Utah generally does a good job here), we need to find ways to recruit and retain quality law enforcement officers. This will be a priority for me in the upcoming session.
