As chiefs of police we all recognize the importance of a comprehensive collaboration among all of the law enforcement agencies in Washtenaw County. This is just another example of all of us working together for a safer community. But we law enforcement leaders also recognize that we cannot do it alone. It takes an entire community and from where I stand today, this is a great showing of support for Gun Safety Week.
