Community members, town officials and retired police officers gathered in front of the Police Department Monday night to share a message of unity.
“We’re here for them like they’re here for us,” organizer Anthony Drago, a longtime Salem resident, said of the town’s Police Department. “We’re done with the bashing. We’re just here to show support.”
Drago recruited a couple of dozen Salem residents to share handshakes and words of encouragement with police, who have been criticized after an audit of the department ordered by Town Manager Chris Dillon earlier this year revealed areas in need of serious improvement.
