Luxemburg Police Chief Chris Gulbrand says his department has been lucky to receive plenty of encouragement from the community in recent weeks. That stands in marked contrast to the historic cuts to police budgets in several American cities. Gulbrand says that for those looking to show support to his officers, a kind word and a smile is more than enough.
Gulbrand acknowledges that corrupt cops do exist, and it is the job of any department to do its best to avoid hiring them. He thinks that police are generally successful at that task, and the issue is more nuanced than many protestors acknowledge.
