At the town fair last night for the fireworks I was thinking about how lucky we are as Wilmington residents to have a truly awesome police department. In addition to what they do every day for the citizens of Wilmington and the folks that pass through our town, at the carnival with all those crowds and lots of folks in from outside of Wilmington, our fine police force keeps control and order without being heavy-handed and obtrusive. Thank you Wilmington Police Department!
