Thank You Notes from Neighbors – Kudo’s
Comments from the Nextdoor website in regards to DUI enforcement;
On 6/8 a neighbor called and wanted to thank Edgewater Officers for their response to her apartment on a loud dispute over the previous weekend. The neighbor indicated that Officers were “patient, respectful, and didn’t stress me out more than I already was” She further relayed that she was “really appreciative of everything the officers had done for her.”

It should be noted that one of our professional property managers within our City takes a very active role in assisting her residents as well as police and recommends to residents that they call police after things have subsided to tell them of the service they provided.

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!
