In the wake of two recent murders, a Gulfport councilman is encouraging the public to thank the police for their hard work.

Ward 6 Councilman R. Lee Flowers is asking residents to send letters of support to the Gulfport Police Department for its quick and professional work. Some in the community felt the police response to the recent murders was slow, but the councilman believes the department did an excellent job investigating these cases.

Flowers says, “Yes, they did their job, but not only did they do their job, they handled it in a very professional manner and a very efficient manner, and we needed that reassurance as a community, especially during that time. Of those very tremendous, very noteworthy losses, it rocked us to our core.”

Flowers encourages residents to post messages on the department’s Facebook page or to email the chief directly.
