Gilbert Police Commendations
When no one is Watching
A citizen called and wanted to express a commendation for one of our officers. The RP reported that she saw a homeless person in the area of Higley and Pecos. She thought she would go get water and food for him, as he appeared to be in distress. As she was leaving, she witnessed an officer stop where the man was. She then saw the officer approach the man with some food and water that he had purchased for the seemingly homeless man. She was taken aback by this, and stated, “to see an officer do this was exceptional.”
Dispatch was able to determine the officer was MS Butler and it was confirmed with him by Sgt. Kautz.
I wanted to share this information with you as it displays a often unseen side of officers acting their best, even when they think no one is watching.
