Longview Police Recognized

The Longview Police Department recieved an award today for keeping the city safe. The Rose Award was presented to Chief J.B. McCaleb by the Longview Mall and Simon Properties. He accepted it on behalf of the entire force.

Simon properties presents the Rose Award all over the country. Typically, it goes to one person. This is the first time an entire police force has been recognized.

"I accept it on behalf of the police department. I'm very proud of the officers assigned to that area, and they're doing several innovative projects there around the mall. Especially during Christmas to make our citizens feel safer out there,"  McCaleb said.

Simon Properties says since they opened in 1978, they've always had a wonderful working relationship with the Longview Police Force. They say that's why they wanted to recognize them all.
