Thank You Notes from Neighbors – Kudo’s

Note from Nextdoor Neighbor

Kudos to the whole department for proactive policing, community outreach and community involvement. The department’s holistic approach to policing builds trust and involvement with the community and increases public safety all the way around. Great job! Also, kudos to the citizens of Edgewater, and to the city’s mix of good taverns within the City limits. I note no Edgewater residents among the DUI list, a testament to our ability to be responsible and walk home from the tavern instead of driving impaired. Edgewater is a great community!

Police response on a domestic situation

A resident from the 2700 block of Ingalls St. called to thank Officer Robenalt, Corporal Geerdes and Sergeant Hamilton as she wanted to apologize to officers for her actions on 4/11/2016. The resident indicated that she had a long day at work and was extremely upset at her boyfriend. The resident said that she was extremely immature during the incident but thanked the officers for calming her down in a very compassionate manner. The resident gave her word that it won’t happen again thanks to the officers caring and courteous attitude.

Neighbor’s notes and “Kudo’s” are placed in the lobby of the police station and placed in the respective officer’s personnel files – thanks for sharing!
