  • On December 5, 2018: An officer was dispatched to a man sitting in front of a building, yelling and harassing the owners of the building.  Upon arrival the officer made contact with the man, and got him to move from the business.  The officer stayed after to make sure the man didn’t return, and the owners were so impressed they wrote a letter to personally thank our officers for their hard work and professional demeanor.
