Citizen Thank You Card

Here are a few thank you notes / photos we’ve received over the past couple of months that we wanted to share. 

Only July 4th, 2016 the Page Police Department had a few of your personnel assist the Page Police Department with our special events … They helped with crowd control near the fireworks launch site, keeping people safe and out of danger areas … (they) did a tremendous job and we would like to express our gratitude and recognize them for their hard work and dedication to the event. Great Job Sergeant Seth Cutchen and CERT Team Members Jeremy Dyke, Jessica Pranke, and Dan Franzen

Regarding a woman's report of her missing parents: They were located through Deputy Alexandria MacArthur's efforts ... Deputy MacArthur - I cannot thank you enough for your support during this time. I appreciate the work that you do each day. You gave me peace of mind and went above and beyond.
