I wish I could give some of my students just an ounce of the kind of drive and ambition you have! They're great kids, but they could really use a little push to find something they love to do as much as you love blogging about crime!
I love reading your site! I often use your work at CAPS meetings and meetings at the district's police department. Keep up the fantastic work! You're doing an amazing job!

Anonymous 2:22, thanks for such a nice comment :). I think that if you want to give your students a little push to find something they love, maybe you should use me as a example to your students (by perhaps just telling them about me, or showing them my blog, or even maybe having me come in and talk to them). I hope they can find something they love to do. That will really benefit them as adults, I think.

It's also really nice of you to use my work at the Beat meetings (since I'm not able really to attend all of the meetings in our neighborhood) and the meetings at the police station. I hope that the work you use is encouraging the residents to keep reporting problems and to read my blog to report problems to me (so I can let the community at large know).

Thanks for your comment :).
