A citizen sent a compliment to MPD with a message of thanks for Officer Payne. He said that after the Badger game on the 29th, he and his friends ended up in a conversation with him. The citizen described it as "one of the most honest and respectful conversations I've had with a police officer." He was impressed with Officer Payne's ability to reach out to people not from the Madison area and noted that he "truly cares about protecting and serving in the city of Madison." The conversation made a lasting impression on the citizen, to the point where he hopes to run into Officer Payne again the next time he is in Madison so he can say hi.
Thank you for the kind words, and thanks to Officer Payne for embodying the core values that MPD strives for when interacting with visitors and residents in the city.
