Re: [MPD-5D] Joseph Cole Center
- Great! Thank you for having the police officer there.
Robby, let me know what happens w/ DPR as well. An employee of the rec center was there when I came over but he had no idea what to do. That is worries me too.

Subject: [MPD-5D] Joseph Cole Center
I was wondering if there could be more of a police presence around Joe Cole

incident to happen. I am not sure what happened with the young man last
night. I hate to think what may of happened to the him if there wasn't an
