My Apologies, This is LONG Overdue…..
I do apologize for the delay in writing this Thank You and Kudos to the Pinellas Park, Florida Police Officers and the Pinellas County Sheriff Deputies on approx 5/18/2012 during an altercation late into the evening.
This situation involved 7 Squads at two different locations and culminated at the two involved residence and place of work and involved over 8 family members in total by the time we were done at approx 1:00am.
I simply wanted to extend my Kudos and appreciation for the professionalism of all officers involved. They should have never even had to become involved in this situation but one of the two involved called 911 unbeknownst to the rest of the family or to the family member who called us, Straight Ahead Outreach.
Not one of the 7 officers involved at any time during the 3 hours raise their voice to anyone. Each officers demeanor to ALL those involved including me was impeccable. Seriously.
This includes to the two who were the cause of the situation. The Pinellas Park Officers and Pinellas County Sheriff Deputies simply could not have treated them better.
They did their job and let me do my job. I am simply sorry they even had to be called out, but they were there before i arrived, but only minutes before. They could have been doing much more important calls i am 100% sure.
To me, this situation turned out to be what i would call a “nuisance call”.
By the end of it all we all had dealt with it and everyone went on their way, the officers left quietly, the Sheriff Deputies shook hands with us and family members and they went on their way. Although one ended up in handcuffs at one point, no one needed to go to jail.
They left me to do what i do and all was quiet. If you had not seen us all out there you would have never known we were there.
Pinellas Park, Florida Police Officers and Pinellas County Sheriff Deputies.
Thank You for your professionalism and KUDOS TO YOU…..you were all awesome!!
