As your Police Chief and on behalf of the Lexington Police Department, I would like to take time to express deepest sympathy for the Massacre in Connecticut. It is definitely a tragic situation and our prayers go out to the families and friends of all the victims who suffer during this tragic loss. As a community, I would ask that each of us would take a few minutes out of our day to say a prayer for the families, by asking God to strengthen them as they make preparation for funeral services. I would like to say thanks for any prayers and support that can be given to those families. God Bless Them All!
