Federalsburg Town Council Shows Support for Police Force

Posted:
FEDERALSBURG, Md.- At Monday night's town council meeting, Mayor Bill Beall, along with council members, presented the Federalsburg Police department with a Total Confidence Plaque.

In an email, mayor Beall said, "The purpose of this presentation is to show our support and confidence and our 100% commitment to FPD. While our plaque does not single out other agencies, we have the same feeling of confidence for all of them as well. We appreciate all of the help we have received. Our community of residents and businesses need to know we are strong and they are safe. The bad guys and gals need to know we are strong and getting stronger. Federalsburg is not a good place for them to act out!"

This comes after concerns of some of the town's residents that police were not doing enough to stave off crime from the typically quiet Caroline County town.  Beall said due to circumstances beyond their control, the police force in the town was down to a "skeleton crew", but they had several prospective hires in the pipeline, and said in the meantime, the police force was strong and professional in light of two murders and a bank robbery late last year. 

The presentation was first on the agenda for this first council meeting of 2015.
