Hi there,

I just wanted to drop a quick note to say thanks to Officer Dale #6633 and Officer Franklin for their help today (1/27/2020). Someone broke into my garage, and they really turned a stressful situation around for me. They could've just taken a report and went on with their day, but they took their time assessing the situation. They showed me how to jam the garage door locked to help prevent theft, and they even made the apartment complex changed my locks before they left the scene.

I especially want to call out Officer Dale's professionalism. He was so polite and kind, and he really went above and beyond to make sure I felt safe in a bad situation. Please pass along my thanks to these officers, and if there is a place where I can send them a handwritten note, I'd love to do so.

Thanks again!
