To the editor: One of the measures of a good city is how services are delivered. Beech Grove has been recognized as one of the safest cities in Indiana.
This bodes well for our Police Department, but we must remind ourselves that crime can occur at any time, to anyone, and anywhere. According to FBI statistics based on 1,000 residents verses violent and property crimes, our city is recognized as the 19th safest city in Indiana and the only one in Marion County to be recognized.
All of the services that we provide to you are important, and it’s a clear indication as to why we are doing well as a government unit. Congratulations to our Police Department and to all departments of local government. Well done.
Dennis B. Buckley
Mayor of Beech Grove
