Press Release from Mayor Lane

Date:  July 18, 2016 
From: Kendall W. Lane, Mayor 
To the citizens of Keene,  
On behalf of the City of Keene, I want to express my shock over the recent events that took place in Dallas when 5 Police Officers were killed and now 3 more killed in Baton Rouge.   As I am sure you know Police Officers put their own lives in jeopardy every day in their endeavor to maintain peace and security within our city and our region.    
Our police officers are professionals who are dedicated caretakers of our community and it is imperative that we all work together towards the betterment of our neighborhoods by supporting them in their courageous efforts as peace officers.  Police officers are leaders, coaches, our friends and our neighbors who are an important part of our community.               


I would like to take this time to express my own sincere gratitude for our law enforcement officials and I encourage everyone to come together to give the support and recognition they deserve.
