On June 20, 2022: I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to one of your officers. One Saturday night, I had accidentally dropped my wallet in the East Parking Garage. Luckily, it was caught on camera, and with the help of the parking lot staff, the officer got the license plate and all the other needed information and retrieved my wallet.

Very rarely do these things happen to where a wallet is returned after it was dropped on a Saturday night in a downtown area. However, for some reason, the stars aligned.

Unfortunately, these days the duties of public servants have become under-appreciated. I would like to express my appreciation for the efforts from that the officer has put forth in this case. He was very reachable, friendly and responsive when it came to the situation. For what it is worth, I am forever grateful for the folks who are in service to the public.
