A letter of gratitude we received during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. “In February 2018, I reported a sexual assault incident. I am the victim in this. Officer K. Kohler was the responding officer. He was very calm and collective and nice. It was easy for me to talk to him because of how he acted. He was also very good with my dog. Since I didn't have a vehicle he gave me and my dog a ride to the police station so I could be examined and evaluated. My dog is a emotional support/therapy dog and in training to be a certified service animal. While at the police station, I trusted Kohler to watch my dog while I had to be examined. When I got back I could tell my dog was happy and calm. I want to thank him for being calm, collective, and nice not just to me but my dog as well. In my opinion he was a very supportive police officer during that difficult time. Please have him and his supervisor contact me so I can verbally thank him and give him praise.” Thank you Officer Kohler, your compassionate approach has made a difference. If you are a victim of sexual assault and it has not been reported, please give us a call and let’s talk about it.

Please be careful about what information you are sharing when you comment on a post. The posts that ask what was your favorite teacher's name, who was your first grade teacher, your first pet's name, who was your childhood best friend, your first car, the place you were born, where you honeymooned, your first concert, your high school mascot, etc. are all asked as security questions when setting up an account. You are giving out answers to security questions without realizing it. Hackers are setting these up as a "get to know each other better" game. Then can then build a profile of you from several different data sources and use this information to hack your account or open lines of credit in your name. #besocialmediasmart
