Due to a TOTAL lack of response to Dave and Linda Bejarano’s offer to organize the annual Lake Mayfield RV get-together, anyone interested in attending should contact the resort themselves. Lacking a group, a group rate would seem unlikely. Several do plan on being there starting around June 10th, but nothing is organized.
John Kozar, one of our retired members brought to light a suggestion that retired officers would be valuable volunteers to monitor jail inmates’ phone calls. In light of the events of the past several months, this might well be a valuable contribution we could each make. Give it some thought and contact John at Kozar.J@comcast.net with your ideas. He is working with command staff at Lacey PD to set up such a program there.
We certainly know what to listen for, can write up a good report, and might just save some current cop’s bacon. Even a couple of 4 hour shifts a month by enough of us could have a considerable impact.
