I want to thank Kim C. Dine (our former chief of police here in Frederick and whom I still call "Chief" when I see him in the neighborhood ) for his gracious, informative, and yet succinct discussion of how Frederick "is an example for the nation" in his "As I see it" column of June 15.

I recognize that there is always more work to do to make policing and community relations better, but the chief's article gave me a better understanding of how community policing should work and how the Frederick city police apparently succeeded in applying it to the recent Black Lives Matter protests/rallies.

Chief Dine was the biggest factor in the high level of professionalism exhibited by the Frederick police force. Bob Lewis


I had a phone discussion with Chief Dine years ago about a controversial subject and he impressed me with his friendly demeanor and professionalism.
