The letter from Chief Currier regarding the harmful effects of closing the St. Lawrence Psychiatric Center really hit the mark. From a law enforcement professional viewpoint, and also coming from a person who really cares about his North Country neighbors, Mr. Currier shows how lucky we are to have people who deeply care about the mental health issues of this area. Gov. Cuomo needs to read and re-read this letter just to see how the mentally challenged are treated at SLCP. They are not just paychecks for employees, but our friends and neighbors. We need this facility here in northern New York.
