Gilbert Police Commendations
Unconditional Support to the People of Gilbert
04/03/2013 I have the pleasure to commend the following officers: Riley Badge # 3565, Pitman B# 4097, J. Roman B#3072, Garber B#3929 for their unconditional support to the people of Gilbert. When all options failed –Animal Control, Fish and Game Department, online postings, neighborhood watch and phone calling—Gilbert Police stepped in and, without even being asked, offered to help. Yes we are talking animals, two stranded baby lambs not an emergency that you would usually get the police involved. My family has raised 100’s of animals in our Gilbert family ranch but these two, sneaky ones, got out onto the streets and catching them in the open became a losing battle. Than all of the sudden, the police show up and instead of trying to cite me, they offer to help. They chase, run, roll and guess what? Called for backup. Two motorized bike officers showed up and for a short while it felt like I was in a part of an action movie. Let me tell you, those bad boys were under submission and on the way to the cage. I’ve been a resident of Gilbert for 10 years but didn’t expect nor deserve the help of these men, but they didn’t give up till my lambs were back under my custody. The officers gave 3 hours of their time to help a failed plan of mine. What can I say but THANK YOU GILBERT POLICE.
