In light of the recent and unfortunate death of Hawk's Aerie constable Barit Smithy, steward Marquis Abon Nillu issued a public announcement in the square earlier today. "Firstly I would like to send my condolences to Master Smithy's family and friends. It is a terrible tragedy when a man gives up his life in the name of justice and it's service to the Light. It has not gone unrecognized that the instances of crimes and general deviance have been increasing in our fair town. This is unacceptable. We must ensure a safe and secure environment for commerce and our citizens." The steward went on to explain that he is increasing the number of security personal in the town and has posted notice of hire for a new Constable.
