A member of the 83rd Citizen Police Academy wrote a thank you letter to Chief Acevedo saying the following:
I am a member of the 83rd CPA and took advantage of a Ride Out that was offered to us. On April 29, 2015. I joined the Frank 400 team and was assigned to Officer Devon Delacerda #7769.
Officer Delacerda and her shift mates took me in and made me feel like part of their team. From a troubled teenager to a machete wailing women, Officer Delacerda displayed pure professionalism, compassion, and the highest of integrity throughout the shift. She had my safety and well being in mind while engaging me into her world and answering my many questions.
Her dedication, devotion, and drive for the job is contagious.
