We would like to share an example of work that gets done every day by police officers around the country but often goes un-noticed, and officers don't want any recognition but we still want to share this with you.
Our officers were called to check the welfare of a person. They met up with our citizen who was scared. They were invited into the residence. They found that the person had no food, their prescriptions had run out and they had no way to make outgoing calls. Our officers made contact with the ACBC food self who set the person up with regular deliveries including by
4 p.m. that day, contacted their health care provider to get their medications started again and called a faith-based organization to help in their assistance. The next day CRPD officers also followed up with Anoka County social services to make sure they had received our report and could provide the best service for the person.
Once again, while this happened here in Coon Rapids, this work happens every day with officers all over the country...work that is often unnoticed.
