RE: Port Orange, Fla., crime suspects.

The West Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office is to be congratulated in the highest possible manner.

The office’s alertness to suspicion, perseverance to duty, selflessness in manner and skills while pursuing two suspicious individuals to their arrest is commendable, to say the least. To realize their detainees were prime suspects in heinous crimes, not yet known or reported, three states away was no less than amazing to them and the people they serve.

Based upon experience, I wish I could be as complimentary to another public entity of West Baton Rouge Parish, but I can’t.
