Honestly, they can pretty much ignore emails. I doubt most of them even read them.

Write a real letter, on real paper, put it in a real envelope and put a real stamp on it. Mail it to their office, and to their homes. Have your spouse write a similar letter, explaining how their officer loved one has missed out on many events, been late to things, because they stopped and helped someone. Tell REAL stories, give solid examples, not just, I helped someone today, but one Friday, December X, while on my way to work, I stopped and helped John Smith change a tire. John was stranded on I-65, in danger of being run over, when I stopped, turned on my emergency lights and blocked traffic, and assisted him with the tire. This was 45 minutes before I went on the clock, and I was not compensated for those 45 minutes. And if you know anyone that has been aided by an off-duty officer, encourage them to call.

You'd be amazed how much of an effect a huge stack of mail at one time can have!

If every officer (and their spouse) doesn't write to their council members, they are part of the problem.

No petitions!
