Dear Mayor Bailey and Riverside City Council Members,
My name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a [RESIDENT/COMMUNITY MEMBER/CITY EMPLOYEE/COMPANY EMPLOYEE/ETC] of Riverside.
I am emailing to express my support for the Riverside Police Department. Defunding our excellent Police Department would be a mistake. I believe our Police Department is a highly professional organization that enforces the law in a fair and unbiased manner. Perhaps our Police Department needs additional resources to address the recent civil unrest.
I urge you to do everything possible to increase our investment in responsible policing. I am calling on our elected officials to commit to increasing the police budget.
Thank you for your attention to my concerns. I hope to see action from our leadership soon.
