We owe a lot to this community, and we are proud of our officers who will always do the extra step to help anyone in need. Last week Officer Alvarez responded to conduct a welfare check on an elderly woman whose out-of-town family had not been able to get a hold of. Thankfully, when Officer Alvarez contacted her, she was fine and was able to get in touch with her family. This week, Officer Alvarez went back to check on her to see if she needed anything. She is confined to a wheelchair and receives meals on wheels a couple times a week, but was in need of a few additional items. He took it upon himself to do a little extra shopping for her at a local store and run back by her residence with some additional groceries.
