    Well, I for one wish Gary Adams the best of luck. I’d love to keep him in UP, but he deserves the chance to run a bigger department if that’s what he wants. As far as I can tell, he’s been a great chief.

    He left a “bigger” department to come to University Park.

    Maybe it isn’t just about the money. Policing can be one of the most needed but “thankless” careers. How many Park Cities residents have taken the time to let Chief Adams know how much he is appreciated for the job “well done” in the more than ten years he has been here? Other cities seem to notice and come knocking trying to lure him away. I would bet very few people know he has lived in the community for the majority of those years, and yet no one knows him when he attends school functions, or shops in one of our shopping centers. I happen to live on Amherst (same street as him), and realize most of the neighbors wouldn’t know him if he was out walking his lab. Texarkana certainly tried to lure him back a few years ago. I have taken a step in sending a note thanking him for what he has done for our community. In my opinion, we should get to know him and let him know we are proud to have (and hopefully keep) him as a part of our community. Does anyone else reading this know he is raising two grandsons that attend Bradfield, or has a wife that is a nurse and has many park cities residents as her patients? If he chooses to leave, we will certainly feel his loss.

    Mcc,

    I hope you also thanked the men and women that make that department what it is.
