As someone who works as a nurse as well in radio, I can say that I never really understood the depth of the effect that crime has on a community until I started to treat both victims and criminals in my field of work. I've seen and treated the physical effects of crime- from fights to car accidents. I've held the hands of those who have been assaulted and helped to heal those that have been victims of sex crimes. I've worked with police officers and probation officers who are exhausted, from lengthy hours to days on the job trying to protect the community. So I am all in support of doing what we can to help protect the Capital District and our community.
