Notes from the Chief

Yeah yeah yeah, I’ve been slacking on my weekly reports. I take part of the blame but I also blame our desktop computer. Somehow there is a “One Drive” that ended up saving our documents and I could not figure out how to make it work. 

Just give me the basic Word document and I am a happy camper. It would take me several tries to save or send documents in this One Drive folder and I finally said the heck with it. They didn’t teach us anything about the One Drive at cop school. Hopefully things are fixed and I can get back in the swing of things. I did catch some grief about the article finally being in the paper, but it was from New Years Eve.  Thanks Dale!

Have a good week!
