A citizen recently reached out to our Department with appreciation and recognition of great work by one of our officers. Their note reads as follows:
"On Wed, 8/19 at around 1 a.m., I called 9-1-1 to report what I believed to be a break-in next door. Believing my neighbors to be on vacation for another week, I was adamant about the "fact" that there were intruders. The "fact" was that they'd come home early. I am so impressed with the officers' ability to read the situation, approach my neighbor in a calm manner, and not act hastily based on my bad information. Thank you for getting right out here and for realizing right away that what was happening was not a crime."
Thank you for the recognition by this citizen and to this officer for their work!
