Gilbert Police Commendations
Support to Yarnell and Prescott
It is my understanding that you not only coordinated Gilbert’s involvement in all of the memorials and activities involving the Yarnell 19, but that you also were one of the individuals in command of security for the services.
I would like to thank you. I do not know all the various officers that responded from Gilbert to assist, but I know they were numerous. I also know the tremendous heat that prevailed, the fortitude that was exemplified, and the professional dignity that was displayed. I will forever be grateful.
Please extend to each officer my deepest appreciation. I am proud to work for such a professional, able and caring organization.
I know personally that the families were well taken care of and felt protected throughout all the various surrounding events, because we were with family that day. Billy Warneke was my husband’s cousin.
