Speed, efficiency in arrest of suspects

Sheriff Keith Royal and his department are to be commended and respected for the speed and efficiency in which they were able to apprehend the suspects in the recent home invasion(s). It is remarkable.

The fact that a tip helped them do so, in no way lessens their accomplishments. Much police work depends heavily on such tips. It no way lessens the results.

I do wonder about the propriety of identifying the informant, in the newspaper. The potential chilling effect on future such assistance from citizens, as well as the pitiable woman who made the call, is obvious. But, again, thanks and admiration to all who helped bring such violence to a cell.
