Potsdam police deserve respect

I'm pretty sure the roadblock that happened in Potsdam was a part of a "Click It or Ticket" campaign going on statewide (“Random Harassment,” June 9-15). I honestly do not care if I have to go through a roadblock as these officers are here for our protection and they make sure our village is safe and secure. Maybe they are making revenue but they are also enforcing the law. I am proud to say that I feel safe in my community because of Potsdam PD and we are very fortunate to have them around. They put their lives on the line for us and I think the officers would appreciate a little respect for that. I couldn't imagine not having a police department in Potsdam. Things could get out of hand very quick. State police and the county sheriff's office have a lot on their hands as it is. So have a little respect for your police departments and appreciate what they do.
