The  Beat:True Stories From the Streets
Literary and Art
Jaynee A.Levy-Polis: Artist
The Beat provides an opportunity to share the Art of talented people associated with enforcing the law.   Law Enforcement Officers  have wonderful stories of caring, love and insight. They are photographers and artists.  Their poetry can make you happy, or make you cry.  They  walk to a different beat.  They survive experiences other people couldn't imagine.  Often, they have strong intuitive natures.   Their history and creativity makes them a breed apart.  Here is a place where they can shine. I hope this newspaper will grow and be beautiful.
