    Grifton is a good town, i have lived here all of my life [17 years]. Yes, grifton has had problems before one dealing with the murder of a close family friend. But because of adults making horrible mistakes does that mean that some of you "tator" have to take that out on my generation by calling some of them "thugs, and criminals". Sometimes these kids need guidence and not criticism if you have such a problem with these kids talk to there parents join mentoring organizations to help them. Dont just judge them by the way the look or the way they live because most of the younger kids are very intellectual and very behaved kids. So before you make another comment about "thugs & criminals" try to make a difference in you community try to make a change.

    I appreciate the kind words by some of you here and thank you for allowing me to serve you for more than six years. I encourage you to continue to support your police department and the new chief, Chief Cauley. I have met him and he seems to be a nice fellow who seems to be eager to pick up where I left off and continue to build upon and even to improve the level of service that the citizens of Grifton have come to know and enjoy. While I was not the best chief in the world, I did do my very best to serve you. I firmly believe he will even do better than I. He has some excellent ideas and I am eager to see where he takes the department in the future. As for me, I am doing very well in the town of Erwin. I do miss the citizens I have grown so close to in Grifton and I thank you for your great support for all those years I was there. My best wishes to you all.

    Morrisette moved to Erwin, N.C. where he is now the Police Chief there. Missing a great citizen and chief now.

    What happened to Morsette? I thought he was still the Chief in Grifton. Obviously, I'm wrong. Somebody, please give me the scoop on the change.

    The only part of Grifton that people "need" to know is North of the Contentnea Creek..That would be Pitt Co. and the best part of Grifton!!! NOTHING GOOD on the SOUTH SIDE!!!!!!
