... to Juneau police
We are writing this letter to say a sincere "thank you" to the officers and dispatchers of the Juneau Police Department. Late in the week of Feb. 27, Sgt. Kevin Siska contacted our executive director at her home about a very frail elder who was at risk. Our care coordination supervisor went to the woman's home with officer Matt Torok and was impressed by his ability to recognize the importance of offering assistance with sensitivity and compassion, while understanding that maintaining her dignity was essential. The woman needed a medical evaluation and did not want to leave her home. We knew we would not be able to get Adult Protective Services and medical attention to assess the situation until early in the week of March 3. Police officers conducted welfare checks on the elder throughout the weekend and the dispatchers that we were in contact with were very kind and helpful.
We feel very fortunate to live in a community that provides this kind of support and protection for the people who live here.
Again, a heartfelt thank you to all of you for your commitment and dedication.
