Two Maryville officers praised for help
I know that law officials sometimes get a lot of bad publicity, but I would like to relay to you a very positive experience that occurred with my husband and two grandchildren.
On Thursday, June 20, my family was heading to the mountains to swim. My husband stopped at the traffic light behind the municipal building and put his Jeep into park to fix a twisted seat belt. When the light turned green, the Jeep would not come out of park. He was first in line at the traffic light and needless to say, he was not very well liked by those drivers behind him.
Within five minutes, a Maryville city officer in a cruiser arrived to assist. Shortly after he arrived, a city motorcycle officer also stopped to help. They stayed until AAA arrived to remove the Jeep.
My husband stated that both of the officers were very nice, tried to help in any way that they could and set a great example for the two grandchildren. I am sorry that we do not have their names as we would like to recognize them personally, but a copy of this letter will be mailed to Tony Crisp, the Maryville police chief.
Again, thanks very much to the two officers for being such positive role models.
