Dear Sheriff Shrader and Undersheriff Fleer: 
I want to express my gratitude for the assistance your agency provided to the Edgewater Police Department on May 25, 2016 covering our city for the MADD Awards Banquet. 

Support provided by your Deputies was critical to enduring public safety in our city that evening. I am pleased to report the evening went very smoothly. 

I would like to commend the following Deputies that assisted us that evening. Sergeant Mark Snowden, Deputy Jesse Daniel, Deputy Jerry Charachol, Deputy Garret Davis and Deputy Jeremy Guilford did an outstanding job covering our city. I was very impressed with their professionalism and courteous attitudes serving our citizens. 

On behalf of the City of Edgewater community, I would like to offer my sincere appreciation for the assistance that you’re Deputies provided. 

With sincere thanks, 

John Mackey, Chief of Police 

Sgt. Lovato and Officer Young, 
I just want to thank you both for the super great job this morning for arriving to the call of the “homeless man” at XXXXX. I have been searching for him for over a week, he is XXXX. You both showed so much professionalism with him even though he was coming down from his heroine and speed high! I am so impressed with you both and also with all the Edgewater Police with all you have to deal with and again you both showed a lot of class with this type of issue. This tenant is definitely being evicted as I absolutely do not want hard drugs or any type of drugs around my tenants and especially the children. You’re both very much appreciated. Thank you. 

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!
