have been on call at all times.

A total of approximately 2200 miles has been travel-
led by the three officers of the Department in the per-
formance of police duties.

I want to thank the two other officers of the Lee
Police Department for the splendid cooperation which
they have given during the past year. Through this
cooperation and interest, the Department will continue
to improve in the coming year.

Respectfully submitted,

OILMAN C. MENTER, Chief

Lee Police Department.
