Officer Martin was very professional in his approach of dealing with the public in the line of his duties. Very cordial and well groomed in his appearance. Keep hiring officers like him.
Ya'll all be safe and thanks for what you do everyday for the public, it is appreciated.

I want to thank the SAPD for patrolling the Sherwood Way & Ave. N intersection, the College Hills & Ave. N intersection, and Douglas Drive along with the Ave. N/Douglas Drive intersection. Since the beginning of school, traffic has increased in these areas as well as the running of red lights. I realize most of us are in a rush, but with the SAPD’s presence, we remember to slow down AND perhaps stop at the yellow light. Also, on multiple occasions, I have seen cars in the right turn lane on Sherwood Way go straight. This is so dangerous!! Thank you for increasing your patrols in these areas.
Jody Mayer on Oct 30, 2018
Officer Beckwith came to the motel where i work and did a walk around with me while I checked rooms, in the dark, while it was cold. He made sure that I was safe and the motel was clear of any harm. Thank you for taking time and walking with me Officer Beckwith. Btw we checked over 20 rooms and he did not complain, just shined his light for me.

badge # 2387 (OF. AL ALVAREZ)
On Saturday, 7/28/2018 my wife and I experienced an unfortunate auto accident on N. Bryant. We were not injured, but our car was damaged. I wish I could remember the officer's name who responded to the incident and I cannot read his signature. His badge # is 2387. He was professional , friendly and very helpful. He dealt with myself and the other driver with courtesy.
William F. Bowen on Jul 30, 2018
I live in Seattle, Washington. In May 2018 I discovered that I had been the victim of credit card fraud, with two purchases made in San Angelo. Seattle police would only give me a report # for my bank, but would not pursue the case. On a whim, I filed an online complaint with the San Angelo PD.
Detective Schultz contacted me soon after, indicating that he was serious about solving the crime. He was extremely professional, motivated, and seemed to care about getting me some justice. He pursued every lead possible, and kept me apprised of his progress each step of the way. Unfortunately, due to the negligence of the businesses involved, he was not able to gather enough evidence to arrest the likely suspect.
I can't express how much it meant to me to have someone willing to pursue this criminal. I am single and retired, and the dedication of Detective Schultz helped make me feel less powerless, less a victim, and more trustful of our justice system. Due to his actions, nobody had better dare try to badmouth cops around me! I've already told anyone who'd listen that Texas cops rule. Detective Schultz - YOU rule!
Thanks again, and hopefully the scumbag who did this will soon be back in jail where he belongs.
Ivy Masse on Jun 29, 2018
My husband passed away on February 5, 2018. The officers were so kind to me and my children as we suffered the worst possible moment of our lives. Thank you
Dawn Fee on Feb 19, 2018
My daughter suffers from severe anxiety. When her car broke down today at the intersection of College Hills and Avenue N she called me crying and having trouble catching her breath. Cars behind her were honking even though she had her emergency flashers on. By the time I got there Officer Welch had arrived on scene, which calmed my daughter quite a bit, he directed traffic around her car while we waited for the tow truck. He was so nice and concerned and will probably never know what a calming impact he had on a young lady having a panic attack. I am proud of Officer Welch and so very thankful he came on the scene. What seems like a little thing to some can make a huge difference. Thank you Officer Welch

THANK YOU FOR BEING THE BEST LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THE NATION. WE ARE VERY PROUD OF HOW YOU KEEP OUR CITY SAFE. GOD BLESS YOU!!!
BILL GEORGE on Nov 28, 2017
Officer Welch was first on scene during a domestic disturbance between my daughter and her boyfriend at my home. I will be forever grateful to him, it was a terrifying experience. He was quick to respond, and restrain the abuser. He completely took control of the situation.
He was very professional, an excellent example of the highest standards. He exemplified what I believe a police officer should be.
In short he is my hero and I would like for him to know how thankful I am that he is on our San Angelo Police Force.
Kathy Pynes on Nov 15, 2017
Several of your fine officers participated in the Active Shooter exercise at our St. Johns Campus today. Thank you all for your participation, you were impressive. Thanks to Officer Bird and Officer Kading for helping us plan and develop! Please give my thanks to each of the individuals that participated. I wish that I would have gotten each of their names to thank them personally.
Gerald Creel on Sep 14, 2017
I would like to personally thank officer Beal. He was one of two officers who came to my home last night and he was not only very understanding he is the nicest police officer I've come across. He went above and beyond to assist and help me and my children. I can't thank him enough! Thank you officer Beal

glad to see the traffic section is checking seat belts on loop 306 and at the same time getting a lot of speeders also keep up the good work
unk on Aug 17, 2017
I hope I got the name right. I saved it in my phone and had intended to send a note sooner than now. Several months ago this young officer stopped on Glenna across from the soccer fields on a hot Saturday afternoon to assist me with a flat tire on my mom's car. The street is very busy and potentially dangerous on the edge of the road to change a tire. Officer Wasson was very professional and helpful. Not only did he offer protection by parking his police vehicle with lights on, but he additionally assisted me with changing the tire. While assisting me, the jack fell over and the officer nearly got his hand caught between the tire and the car, luckily the tired lodged perfectly underneath the wheel well and the officer was quick enough to keep his hand from being injured. Thank you to this officer for his act of public service.

Officer Charles Barker
Officer Barker has been instrumental in providing mentorship and leadership for some of our youngest Security Forces members. As a retired Security Forces member himself, Officer Barker has provided our youngest Defenders with some real-world experience by facilitating ride along programs and taking a few of them under his wing. Our Airman have commented on his professionalism, knowledge and overall zest for law enforcement. He has amplified their knowledge of civilian police activities and thus this has transferred over into their everyday military police functions. Officer Barker is a great representative of the SAPD and our local community. It's an honor and privilege to work alongside such a great human being.
JC on Jul 25, 2017
I want to commend officer Rios. Officer Rios was calm, polite, and extremely helpful in resolving a situation I was recently involved in. The way he handled the situation reflected greatly on the SAPD. Should I ever have to call the police again, I hope I get an officer that has the same professional attitude that he displayed.
Calvin James on Jun 16, 2017
Kudos to Officer Gossett, for his compassion and generosity in helping beyond what was expected of him. It was a pleasure meeting him and witnessing his humanity.
Ruby Cantu on May 23, 2017
On March 28th, I had a situation at my home with someone attempting to gain entrance to my home by way of a gate. He ended up jumping over the fence and taking items of no value from my fenced in back yard. I was extremely afraid and concerned as I believed that once inside the yard he would attempt to enter my home. I called the police department and Officer Beal responded to my call. He walked through the back yard to check out the situation and then he actually secured my gate. Not only was Officer Beal, friendly and attentive to my concern and obviously being upset, he assured me he would add extra patrol. Through out the night, I could see that the patrol was driving past. I was very frightened by this event and I so appreciated his reassurance and his sincere presence in listening. Job Well Done.
Teri Sosa on Mar 28, 2017
Thank you for coming to the aid of my father at his home when he was disoriented. Thank you for calling me and keeping me informed of the situation. Thank you for your gentle spirit in this delicate situation. I appreciate your service to our community. Thank you.
Felicia Lopez on Mar 05, 2017
On 2/6/17 i was suicidal and tried to kill myself by cutting my wrist and neck, this officer calmly talked to me like a human being and that life mattered no matter what i was going through, He was polite understanding and made me feel like i wanted to live

Officer Kole, Sgt Holt and others
We had a theft on December from our truck, after the initial report we were contacted several times throughout the day with questions and updates on what was happening. Officer Kole came to our house and took more information and updated us on the progress. We were called by Officer Flores about 7 that night and asked if we could come down and pick up some of our property that had been recovered. We arrived at the PD about 7:15 and were waiting outside for an available officer when Sgt Holt came to the door and let us in and showed us to the waiting area so we wouldn't have to wait in the cold. After he checked to see that our need were being me he left and while we waited several other officers passed by and each one of them asked if we were being helped and if there was anything they could do for us. It made me very proud and appreciative of our police department and I wanted to thank you for all you do for us. Be safe.
Mike Bien on Dec 06, 2016
On Monday, December 5th our truck was broken into in the Walmart parking lot on South Bryant. We contacted the police and Officer Francis was the responding officer. He was very polite and professional. He took all our information and asked us questions about objects that were taken. I really appreciate the way we were treated and how fast things moved in finding the individuals that stole our property and their arrest. Thank you to Officer Francis and the rest of the department. Keep up the good work!

Officer Lane and Officer Bill ---
Officer Lane and Officer Bill --- handled an incident for me where a man was in my car while I was out of town. November 6, or was it November 7th? They ran my plates and called my emergency contact after not being able to reach me because I was traveling. They immediately called me in Corpus Christi even while they were still at my car with the man and they were both so kind and yet professional. They explained everything that had happened at the car, and told me a bit of history of the man, and explained my options on filing charges and what would happen if I did file. They addressed me as ma'am during the entire conversation. Later Officer Bil --- called me back and suggested I sanitize my car for my own safety. They were so polite and professional in how they handled everything. I thanked them several times for all they did.
Gloria Johns on Nov 14, 2016
Unfortunately I had my first accident yesterday. ALL of the officers were so courteous and helpful. I don't have all of their names. There were several!! I appreciate so much their handling of the situation and their help. Officer Loudermilk was the one that handled the actual paperwork etc. Another officer, unfortunately I don't have his name, was nice enough to give me a ride home. Been driving almost 50 years without an accident. Hope this was my last. But I really appreciated their help.

Officers K. Green and T. Gonzales
On 7 October 2016, I called dispatch and asked for assistance with a situation where my children's grandfather was driving them in his work vehicle that had no seats. The situation had quickly become volatile between their grandfather and I because I was very angry he had risked their lives and he obviously was distraught in getting caught endangering them and in his boss' vehicle. Officers Green and Gonzales arrived and quickly got to work in diffusing the situation. Despite multiple family members from my ex-wife's family arriving on the scene and making more chaos, and claiming that I did not have the right to take custody of my children. Officer Green handled both sides with respect, took the time to look over the legal paperwork and followed the court order and allowed me to depart with my children. They both also took time to talk to the children, explain to them that I love them and that I was doing the right thing since they were a bit distraught as well. Officer Green's experience and both Officer's care and compassion in the situation were commendatory and and I am grateful that they were the Officers to handle the situation. Please extend to them my appreciation and know that you have two good Officers who obviously have the right mentality and training to handle these type of scenarios.
Jason Rader on Oct 27, 2016
Very knowlegable, Very kind, I have had some very emotional days lately, with the hate mail being posted on facebook, and absolutly vulgar text messages being sent, harassing phone calls,and I haven't seen my grandson in 3.5 months. We have been together for 5, sometimes 6 days a week for 4 years, all in an attempt to discredit my statements in an on going CPS investigation. They have money for an attorney, which sent registered mail to me today. I am on a limited income and in poor health, I can't afford an attorney. Officer Reyes was here with my son to pickup a gun, that he knows I don't have. I have told my son twice that the gun I bought him 2 years ago for his birthday was at his Uncle's house, locked up in safe room . He just needed to call his uncle and let him know he was coming to get it. They were just trying to bully me, but Officer Reyes took the time to talk to me and give me few ideas of where I might could get some help with my situation. That is a good man in my opinion. There was another officer that came out when they were harassing me with phone calls and when I stopped answering, they began texting me. He helped me with blocking them and texted a message for me to them, Not to call or Texted me anymore are harassment charges on them. I wished I could remember his name, because he needs an atta boy , too. Maybe you can find him. He came out to the house around 7pm on the July the 12th, 2016. God be with you all.
Rebecca Martin on Oct 06, 2016
The family(4 adults/2 small children) was on the lake around 4pm Sunday September 4th and we were having boat problems, could not get it to start for over an hour. While being towed it did start, we had to go by Spring Creek Marina and then cross under the bridge to get back to the ramp and could only go max of 6-8mph. I told my son not to slow down as I was afraid it would die again, we were creating a wake but were not going fast. As we crossed under the bridge, we heard the siren and Lake Patrol pulled up beside us and I told them we were having motor problems and could they follow us to the ramp and I would be happy to get a citation. They seemed to understand and started following us, as we turned to head toward the ramp, they waived us on, very nice. I know we were wrong and I think they knew I was being truthful and they watched us make it back safely. I appreciate the courtesy and am thankful for our entire police staff. God Bless all of our police officers. Thank you for keeping us safe.
Smith Family on Sep 14, 2016
I was helping a friend move into their apartment and I didn't realize they had assigned parking and that I mistakenly parked in another residents parking spot. after unloading some stuff I came back to my vehicle to find another vehicle parked behind me with a note in their window saying that I've taken their spot. I then called the non-emergency police number and explained the situation and that it was a honest mistake. Officer McAndrews came out to the apartments was professional and knew how to approach the incident.
Kelly Kennedy on Sep 11, 2016
CSI Stevens presented defense attorneys and a defense investigator an evidence viewing in a capital murder case with the assistance a colleague whose name I do not remember, on Sept. 1, 2016; I am one of the two attorneys. Two prosecutors, a D.A. investigator, and AN SAPD Detective were also present and benefited from this evidence viewing. In my 40 years of practice I have never seen a more efficient, secure and organized presentation of criminal case evidence. We were supplied with excellent written materials cataloging the evidence items in a logical and legal-minded manner. I cannot envision how any evidence management could me more professional and organized than that provided by CSI STevens and her assistant.

City Marshall Mears
On Friday, August 26th, I had to transport my husband from Urgent Care Clinic to Shannon ER as soon as possible. Officer Mears was in the lane next to us and we asked him to escort us to the Hospital. He even helped get my husband inside with wheelchair and sat with him while I got him registered. Thank you!

San Angelo Police Department
To Whom It Concerns,
My name is Palmer Wilson and I am trying to write a letter to the San Angelo Police Department. It writes as follows:
A good friend of mine was recently arrested by the San Angelo Police Department for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. I will never know the circumstances of the situation; however, that is not what I am writing about. I want to thank the San Angelo Police Department for their professionalism. Confronted by a masked man with a rifle would unhinge even me, a Veteran of the United States Army. A situation that could have ended in a very tragic way was deflected by the decisions of the officers confronted by the situation. My friend will face the consequences for his decisions; however, he is alive thanks to the San Angelo Police Department. And finally, I just want to say that my thoughts go out to officers who helped my friend that night.
Palmer Wilson on Aug 02, 2016
I was broke down Sunday night in between college hills and southwest Blvds 7-31-16, and the officer that pulled up next to me asked if i was okay and asked if i had a way home i said someone was coming to tow me home in 5 min, this officer pulled back behind me about 40 feet and turned on his traffic advisor to make sure no-one would run us over, and followed us for about five min or so making sure everything was fine, i was very impressed by this officer for doing his job, knowing that there was another officer that passed by in a 2013 charger and didnt do anything this officer was in a older model charger and i was very impressed by him.
Brandon Gutierrez on Aug 02, 2016
Involved in a rather ridiculous situation that is outside my control and Officer Stuart did an excellent job at listening to the situation and discerning my options and realizing the importance of the situation. I definitely appreciate her.
Lisa Hadorn on Jul 26, 2016
One night after work, I was heading home. I was eager to get there, change clothes and head to ASU to play Pokemon Go. I got into a little too much of a hurry and blew a stops sign. Officer Green caught me. In an attempt of fleeting redemption, I did everything I could to be a good citizen. I turned off the truck and had everything prepared for him. Officer Green was very nice, and not only provided some laughter, but a good life lesson; the laws are there for our protection. He let me off with a written warning, and I'm indebted to him. I've always been very supportive of our officers, and always will be. Keep up the good work Officer Green, I greatly appreciate your service. #BlueLivesMatter

To the entire San Angelo police department.
Dear ladies and gentlemen,
I am not from San Angelo but I have lived here for just over five years. I just wanted to say something in the wake of these last few weeks. I cannot image what each of you have faced in your careers nor could I boast on knowing how you may feel each night as you protect this city. I can say that as a veteran that I understand the quiet sentinel that must keep watch whether praised or cursed. Many may never know what cost you have paid for your service or what is yet to come, but I honor you for your willingness to stand. Many enjoy safety without ever knowing what is required to keep that safety. Sadly many would not be willing to stand. For every one that would speak rudely about you sacrifice and dismiss you service know that I am one among many that praise your selflessness. I don't know if each of you have faith in God above but please accept this prayer from me out of love, "My Heavenly Father look down on these men and women tonight, for each goes out to serve. Grant them courage to face whatever comes and from Your bounty grant them peace and calm in their daily storms. Let them be tempered with compassion and not overcome with contempt. May they be the beacon to all in need and with wisdom judge the right. Heal their hearts for those that have gone before. May they carry each hug and kiss from their loved ones as a shield against the cruelty they may endure. In the moments that are darkest may they know they are never alone. Bless them each one and all." I will pray for you all and thank you.
Patrick Bell on Jul 17, 2016
Although Rodrigo Hernandez was not my local coordinator on my events for the 2016 Texas Police Games he made sure every one had plenty to eat. I have never been to a Texas Police Games where a local coordinator of a city or town took care of us as board members with food. Not just food, Great food! Rodrigo will always have a special place in my heart and I just hope I can return the favor if he ever comes to Dallas. Kudos to Rodrigo.......
Barry Thornton on Jul 07, 2016
I just wanted to reach out to someone to let them know the great work Officer Abel Nandin put in during the 2016 Texas Police Games in San Angelo. He was the local coordinator for my power lifting event, leading up to the event he kept in contact with me insuring that everything that was needed for Powerlifting was available. During the actual event Abel his wife and his son assisted in making sure the event didn't have any problems. His attitude hard work, knowledge and dedication was second to none. I am proud to say Abel went above and beyond with his actions for the Texas Police Games. Thank you for allowing Abel to be the local coordinator.
Barry W. Thornton on Jul 07, 2016
Officer Landing did an outstanding job representing SAPD at the Texas Police Games last week in San Angelo, Texas. He went above and beyond in coordinating several events and worked 20 hour days. He already had a very positive attitude and did an incredible job with making the other law enforcement officers from the State of Texas feel right at home with that great San Angelo hospitality. We can't thank him enough for his hard work, great attitude and will to go the extra yard in everything he was assigned to do last week for the Texas Police Athletic Federation.

Officer Hunger helped us with a minor collision yesterday at Johnson and Ave. N. He could not have been nicer! His warm friendly manner helped make an unpleasant situation better!
Renie Holik on Jun 01, 2016
I was meaning to write this during police week, however time escaped me. I was recently a passenger in a vehicle that Motor Officer Bylsma pulled over for a very legitimate traffic violation near the Elks Lodge. This officer observed this violation and conducted a traffic stop. I can say throughout the entire encounter this officer was professional and respectful. I recently had a chance to speak with him again and thanked him.
I would like the San Angelo Police Department know this experience was one of the most professional I have observed.
Keep Up the good work.
Russell Zohfeld on May 25, 2016
Mike Gesch has always volunteer his time at the Relay For Life of Tom Green County. This year not only did he have a crew of volunteer officers to help run security at the event but they honored our cancer survivors by escorting them during our opening ceremony during the survivor lap. It was an amazing site to see the heroes of San Angelo escorting the heroes of the Relay For Life. We are very thankful for everything these SAPD volunteers do for us each year but this year they really went over the top. Thank you so much Officer Gesch for your commitment to the Relay For Life of Tom Green County.

ATTENDED ACTIVE SHOOTER TRAINING ON 04/11/16 AT CSCD. THIS WAS THE MOST USEFUL TRAINING I HAVE ATTENDED IN RECENT MEMORY. OFFICER UPTON IS OBVIOUSLY PASSIONATE ABOUT COMMUNITY POLICING AND WORKING WITH THE PUBLIC, AND REFLECTS THAT IN HIS PERSONAL APPEARANCE, DEMEANOR AND THE PROFESSIONAL MANNER IN WHICH HE PRESENTED THE MATERIAL. I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PRESENTATION WITHOUT RESERVATION. THANK YOU TO THE S.A.P.D. COMMAND STRUCTURE FOR PERMITTING OFFICER UPTON THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE THIS TRAINING.

Just wanted to thank Chief Fant for coming to visit us at KIDY yesterday to give us our active shooter response training. Very valuable information, both for us that work here and our viewers as well! So appreciative that you guys are offering this service!
Rob Harris on Mar 17, 2016
Officer Govera assisted me in a stolen phone and was able to recover it quickly using a lost iPhone app. Officer Govera was extremely respectful and patient the entire time, and treated this small Incident as if it was his own phone that was stolen. Using a lost iPhone app we located the phone and were able to find the individual responsible. Even though I did not feel the need to press charges against the individual, I feel as though Officer Govera handled the Small case with such professionalism that the individual will definitely think twice before making a stupid mistake that can possibly ruin his young life. Officer Govera's Respect, Professionalism and Duty to act attitude has brought great respect from me towards the Department. Thank you for you time and Professionalism.
Dorian Conrad on Mar 14, 2016
I would like to commend Officer Faz. It has been a long time since he was on a call I had to make and I was not aware we could do this.
He showed up and made sure both parties were ok and was being very attentive to body movements and his surroundings-as well as mine.
I could tell he cared and he went above and beyond what his duties were.
Thanks Officer Faz!

I would like to give a sincere thanks. To Officer P I would like to give a sincere thanks. To Officer Pollitt, The officer responded to a nonemergency call, and took down and listen to my information but I have to relate. I sincerely appreciate him and his sincerity on the job. I would highly thank HIM, for being such an upstanding officer.
I also would like to say that he was outstanding where is personality and just everything was all good and he took care of business.
Personal message to Officer Pollitt: I hope I do not have to see you anytime soon but at least I know you're there and you're doing your job thank you big thank you!!!
Travis L. Finney on Jan 30, 2016
I have forgotten.
I can't remember the name of the officer who arrested me for P.I. a couple of months ago, but I wished to commend the officer for the professional, clear and even courteous way in which he treated me. I was unable to pay the fine in time and know that there is a warrant for my arrest. I am in Dallas taking care of a close relative who will soon go to heaven. When I have attended the funeral, may I simply come back to San Angelo and turn myself in for the time necessary to pay the fine?
Thanks again for being a testimony for police officers who do consistently face danger and still maintain an attitude of respect and fairness.

Laura Washington with Victims Assistance/Crime Prevention under the supervision of Sergeant Salazar
Having been a victim of multiple incidents of abuse and trauma throughout my life, I have a difficult time feeling safe with people. Most people are apathetic to experiences or needs outside of their own. So, when I cross paths with a person who seems to defy the norm, I think it is important to acknowledge that person.
My call for assistance was redirected to Laura Washington. She listened compassionately to my concerns and did what she could to validate my feelings. Laura promptly followed up regarding any return calls, diligently looked up and verified program information, and worked hard to communicate key points despite my stressed communication at times.
Because of my disability, people often misinterpret my behavior, statements or intentions, but Laura was kind enough to respectfully clarify, explain and question as needed. She was open to proposed solutions while she patiently reiterated what "is" and what "is not" feasible regarding her department without making me feel abandoned. She helped me feel like someone cared enough to try to help during a time of need. While I do not know Laura Washington personally, she seems like a valuable asset to the Victims Assistance/Crime Prevention unit within the San Angelo Police Department.

Sgt Wike, Lake Police
Last night l had to call 911 again for assistance dealing with my husband, Harry, with Dementia,
I do not have the names of everyone who responded, but, as usual they came to our rescue.
The SAPD makes me proud and secure being
a resident of San Angelo.
Hopefully you will have a record of this call and the several others made over the past year from 5230 Beverly Dr. I would like all of these exceptional officers and 911 operators to be commended!
Many thanks to all of you!

I want to thank all the men and women who took time out of their days to come and speak to us at the Citizens Police Academy about their jobs as Police Officers. They were all very interesting and gave us a lot of useful information about what goes on in their particular jobs.They showed their professionalism and love of the jobs they do. It was a great insight to some things that go on behind the scenes. With all the things going on in the national news I am amazed that anyone wants to do the job anymore. All the officers I spoke with talked about wanting to help the citizens out and their love for the job they do. Thank you for everything you do!!!

Would like to give a thank you to officer Webber. My daughter was in a accident on the loop. She is 18 and was involved in a car accident she was hit from behind, she was distraught. Officer Webber and another officer calmed her down and was very professional there was also a younger child in the truck that was involved within all the chaos that was going on the officers remained calm and was able to help the kids while maintaining a safe environment and surrounding. Officer Webber also stopped by the hospital to make sure everything was okay. My family and I thank you officer Webber. Thank you SAPD.

@230 a.m. I was in my house when I observed flashing lights from outside. I looked out front and saw 2 patrol cars and a K-9 officer questioning 4-5 person outside of stopped red car. I wanted to thank the SAPD for keeping the PaulAnn community safe. It feels good having all of you over in our neighborhood watching our backs. Please feel free to stop by while we are home for a glass of something cold to drink on those hot days.
With grateful respect

My name is Pat Carrigan. I am a photographer who was in town to shoot the ASU OPSU game Saturday night. I was pulled over by the loop by SAPD for having a tail light out. I think the officers name was Stewart but I dont remember. She was great very professional. Thank her for pulling me over for me not doing my job. She was outstanding. I support any PD in these times of constant persecution by our leaders and citizens. Please keep up the good work. Please express my thanks to the 2 officers. Give em a raise, commendation or something. We the citizens of Texas support the blue. Well at least I do. Thanks again

Greetings Chief Tim Vasquez,
Sir, I had the opportunity to meet your department's Sergeant Shah this afternoon at 1442 hrs at 1700 Edmund Blvd. I had exceeded the posted speed limit driving through the residential area posted at 30mph while in route to JP Precinct 3 Judge Buck's office. Your Sergeant executed all proper measures in stopping me and I entered the Baptist church's parking lot for further procedures. Your Sergeant was very professional, courteous and respectful. I was in the wrong and admitted it. No excuses, zero tolerance. He noticed my DV plates and inquired and I shortly explained the 3 Iraqi combat deployments I did between 2004 and 2006 and why I was 60% VA disabled. He commended me for my combat service and was grateful for former and current soldiers like me who fought to free the Iraqi people from a wicked inhumane dictator. Sergeant Shah should be recognized for his unselfish devotion to duty and his immaculate respect to citizens and veterans in his San Angelo area of operations.

I would like to give personal commendation to the detective that is helping me on a case that has been ongoing for months now...Detective Jake Russell has been very instrumental and shown great patience with me with the theft of my wallet/checkbook/debit card!
I would also like to commend Officer Green as to the response to my house, also his partner on that night. I believe the officer that was the partner was the...officer that came to visit with me when I was in the hospital.
My Name is Travis L. Finney
I do hope someone acknowledges this message! I BELIEVE THAT ALL OF THE OFFICERS SHOULD BE COMMENDED!! I personally don't wish to know or see any of you!!!! I do thank my ANGELS WITH THE BLUE WHEN THEY ARE NEEDED!

I do overnight security for the Silver Spur Gun show when it is held at the Coliseum. On Saturday night either my cell phone wasn't receiving properly or I had disabled it. My wife calls through the night checking on me, on this occasion failing to raise me at 11:45 PM. After repeatedly trying to reach me until sometime just after 1:00 AM she resorted to calling the San Angelo Police Department on their non-emergency line. She was treated very cordially and helpfully, the dispatcher sending an officer to the Coliseum to check on me. This officer was also very courteous and friendly, displaying a helpful and concerned attitude. I was fine, blissfully unaware that the phone wasn't working but really grateful that the San Angelo police were helpful to allay my wife's concerns for me. The attitudes projected by both dispatch and the unknown officer who were both very professional and very heartwarming to experience. I feel like I have friends at the San Angelo Police Department who've "got my back" whenever I am doing the all-night security stint at the gun show.
Please let both dispatch and the officer on duty who came to the Coliseum at 1:00-1:30 AM Sunday morning know that their efforts are noticed and appreciated. You make a difference!

Officer Kolb was the second officer to stop by our group home residence at 236 Westwood after a mother had called the police. A consumer was upset and the mother, who has a history of accusing the group home of holding her son against his will called the police. My staff person was outside visiting with the consumer about the incident, his behavior program, etc. when Officer Kolb stopped. My staff person was highly complimentary of Officer Kolb and his interaction both with her and the consumer. She stated Officer Kolb followed her lead and counseled the consumer on his rights, living situation and consequences of not following rules, etc. and was very supportive of the group home and the consumer. Thanks for a job well done Officer Kolb.

Lt Mike Hernandez
To the San Angelo Police Department,
Our family would like to thank Lieutenant Mike Hernandez for his service on June 18, 2015. Our son, Jordan, was visiting San Angelo and had been there with friends who are enrolled in the University. While having all the fun that youngsters tend to have, Jordan dropped his cell phone in the pool and it never recovered. When it was time for him to make his way home, he missed his bus at the Greyhound station. Needless to say, his friends simply dropped him off thinking he was safe and sound. Having no way to contact anyone, Jordan drifted around waiting for the next bus. After 24 hours of no contact, his dad and I contacted the San Angelo Police Department. Lieutenant Mike Hernandez, answered our call and immediately took action. Honestly, I expected him to wait until the next day to start work on this case. But, when Jordan's friends called saying that they had spoken to Lt. Mike that same night, I felt hope. Later that night we did make contact Jordan and I left a message for Lt. Mike to inform him. The next day Lt. Mike called to make sure Jordan had made it home safely. San Angelo Police Department, I am sure is honored to have Lt. Mike on the squad. But as parents, we worry about our children and hope that the authorities care as much as we do. And, Lieutenant Mike showed us that he cares! Thanks, Mike, all the way from Allen, TX!!! Bridgette & Thomas Burke
Thomas and Bridgette Burke on Jun 25, 2015
I wanted to Thank him again for being kind, understanding and a little funny. He pulled me over for speeding. I really had no idea what the speed limit was at the time. Ive been working 2 jobs over 16 hours a day sometimes just to make ends meet. He gave me a warning and made my day a little brighter. In fact, he put a smile on my face with his friendliness and great personality and attitude. I feel like we all need a little help every once in a while. I wish I meet more policeman like him. Thank you again. I promise to obey all traffic laws.
PS. Can u please let him know that he is much appreciated for all he does.
Melody Prieto on Jun 05, 2015
Officer McAndrews came to my home after I called in a break in of my car. He got to my house very quickly after my call, took information, took fingerprints and was very courteous and professional. He was very attentive to detail and efficient. I told him that I hesitate to contact police because I know they have bigger fish to fry, but he was very encouraging for me to call if I see anything suspicious. He informed me of online reporting if I don't feel it is important enough to get an officer involved.
What A Nice Experience! I Greatly Appreciate San Angelo Police Officers. Just from common knowledge, I feel that we have the best, most dependable, best looking police force around. Thanks, guys for risking your lives for the protection of ordinary citizens. Officer McAndrews is one of the most professional, courteous and efficient officers in a super police department. That is saying a lot!

Earlier this evening there was a knock on my door. My wife opened the door to find Officer Hawthorne at our door step asking if she was our son Desmond's mother. My son Desmond who's 6th b-day happens to be tomorrow, had been in the front yard riding his power wheels police car when Officer Hawthorne drove by and noticed him. He stopped to talk to Des and let him get an up close and personal look at a real police cruiser. I was not home to witness this but as soon as I pulled into the driveway my son comes running up to tell me that he wants to be a police officer when he grows up. I would like to thank the officer for taking time out of his busy day to do such a random act of kindness.
Dustin Carnes on Apr 17, 2015
Officer Montez along with his partner Alfred Rios handled a situation exceptionally well! The situation was an ongoing fiasco that involved departments from Abilene, Bronte, and Grape Creek, Texas. Each of those departments failed to follow proper procedure and were not aware of the procedures in place for their department. On the contrary, Officers Montez and Rios followed procedures, were fair, and handled the entire investigation with complete professionalism and expertise in their field. I am extremely proud of them and the San Angelo Police Department. I am proud to live in San Angelo, Texas and with officers like these two men, I, along with my family feel safe, protected and taken care.

Sorry we did not get the officer's name. This was appreciated very much.

I just want to say thanks for all the police department does. I know that there has been a lot of negative light on law enforcement lately, and I can only imagine how discouraging that must be. The fact you continue to protect and serve is highly commendable and all too often overlooked. I work at Xpose Hair Salon at 3810 Sherwood Way and want to show my appreciation by offering all SAPD officers free haircuts through January 1st. Just ask for me, Courtney Givens, and I'll be happy to help out anytime Tuesday- Saturday 11:30-6:30! Merry Christmas, and God bless!!!
Courtney Givens on Dec 18, 2014
Officer Griffin exemplifies goodness and positivity in the community. I've seen how interacts with members of the community and the children as well. I've seen him in various places, but also at Paul Ann Church. Officer Griffin serves as an example for us all.
As I grew up, we all wanted to be professional athletes or fireman/policemen. This theme seems to have changed somewhat as our newest generation grows up. I was excited to hear my own elementary age child comment that it would be awesome to be a policeman like Officer Griffin. I work with children all day long (as an elementary principal) and that statement shows Officer Griffin is representing your department well.

Johnny Rodriguez has been incredibe while working at Lincoln Middle School. I work with our students who have intellectual disabilities and have a young man who is under the best circumstances challenging. This young man has an emotional disability and an intellectual disability and has been severely abused throughout his life. He has injured many staff members and is violent and often vulgar. Because of these circumstances not many people choose to interact with him. Officer Rodriguez has for over the last year built and maintained a very special relationship with this young person, and it is the absolute highlight of his day when he gets to visit with officer Rodriguez on Tuesdays when he is on duty here at Lincoln. I am so appreciative of this man and his kindness

Several Officers, Names Unknown
I requested patrols be more present and vigilant in Paulann, in particular, the intersection of Gregory and Ricks. We have an increased problem with speeders and vehicles running that stop sign. Since more officers are making their presence known, cars seem to be slowing down a bit and actually stopping at the stop sign. Thanks to all who patrol our addition and make everyone safe.

Officer Morris helped in a family dispute. He was called several times, different days to help keep the peace and he always was very professional and courteous. He patrolled the area and kept an eye on things even when he was not asked to. My family felt safe and appreciate him and the work he does. Thank you.

I am visiting your fair city for a few days, work related. While driving through your town I was unaware of the speed limit in one section of the town. I was stopped and ticketed by Officer Dye for the speed.
I my prior life, I am a retired State Trooper for the State of Alaska. Whenever I come in contact with law enforcement I seem to still take notice of different things. First I would like to let you know Officer Dye was very professional as well as friendly. He found I was from out of town, but 14 mph over the limit was still going to get me a ticket. He explained everything politely and made sure I didn't feel like I was being singled out. Very nice interaction.
Additionally, his officer safety was excellent. Good approach to the car. I could see his eyes were checking all the right places, stayed in position during the entire contact never letting down his guard. Very good officer.
Please let him know I appreciate his consideration and a job well done. It's the little things he did that makes for a good officer and a safe officer.
Mickey Pullen on May 06, 2014
Just a few weeks ago, I took my children to the local JBF sale where we met Officer Griff. He came up to my kids and asked them if they had seen Pac-Man. We looked around and then he showed us a tennis ball that he had made to resemble the character. It was so sweet and funny, and I just wanted the San Angelo Police Department to know how much I appreciated that. Mr. Griff showed my children that a police officer is someone who is a safe person, and someone that can be trusted. I will forever be grateful!

I've known him for many years, he goes to the same church I do. He is a great guy, and better friend. His morals reflect that of the Department very well. He conducts himself in a very professional, friendly, and even humorously way. Every time I see him, he has a smile on his face. When I'm around him, I know I'm safe, and in good hands. The San Angelo Police Department has many officers, obviously, and whenever I see them, I know I'm well protected, and safe from danger. Thank you for your service.

I was pulled over for a minor traffic violation on the corner of Washington and Live Oak the afternoon of 4/4/14. The officer handling the ticket as well as the officer that arrived for backup were very friendly. I'm not familiar with exactly how everything works here in this county so I asked questions. They were knowledgeable and helpful. I really appreciate that. Thanks guys!! =)

I live at the Riverpointe Apartments. 2 days ago while sitting on my front porch, I saw an officer with his lights on, pulling someone over, who just happened to pull into our complex right in front of our house. My son, who is 7, was riding his bike out front. While this officer was speaking with the driver he pulled over, my son went up to him and asked him if he could please see the inside of his car. I explained to my son, who was so excited because the officer allowed him to look, not to bother him while he was working. A few minutes later, the officer was back in his car, with about 10 kids at his window..... The officer sat there and talked to the kids a d answered their questions for about 20 minutes or so. I didn't catch his name, but I would like to tell him thankyou, again, for taking the time out to listen to these children and talk to them! He didn't have to do that, but he did. I respect him a lot for that, and my son is still talking about it. So thankyou again sir......

Throughout my adulthood in San Angelo, I have always found SAPD to be fair and fast. I made an emergency call for service a few days ago and received fast response -- surely less than two minutes, perhaps quicker. It was such a safe feeling I felt when the officer arrived to aid me.
When a detective followed-up with me on that call-for-service, his fair perspective and fantastic advice continues to support the notion that this city enjoys the benefits of a world-class police department.
Thank you all for the risks you take to protect us.

I am new to GoodFellow AFB and San Angelo. I was participating in the Pops concert this coming week. At 8 am, sunday morning I was driving around trying to find an address that was later to be the Riverstage. Officer Bradshaw and his fellow Patrolman went out of their way to find out where I should be and even take me to the Riverstage itself. Thank you again Officers, you both went out of your way and I do appreciate your help this morning and the Texas hospitality that I missed for so long.

Thank you for listening to what is an issue involving neighbors. You were very professional and understanding. Unfortunately, rather fortunately this is the first time I have had the opportunity to thank the SAPD. He did appear concerned and made suggestions for safety and what to do in the future. I do hope that he is recognized for his efforts. He did provide information on how to contact the office if needed in non-emergency situations.

Saturday afternoon, Oct. 29, my daughter and I were were stopped near Target by a motorcycle patrolman, she was ticketed for several things her own fault. As her Mom I didnot know how things would happen after her arrest, this patrolman was very patient and kind with me and her, (though I am sure he thinks I a bit dumb not being able to understand as he had to explain the process a few times)just wanted him to know I appreciated the way he handled things. Please let him know this. So sorry I can't remember his name.

My husband and I were in the Lowes grocery store just off Bryant during our last good rain. The Officer was so pleasant to be around. He was talking to other customers in the store and my husband I have talked about it several times since. Its nice to know that San Angelo has police officers who care. Thank you very much.

We called the SAPD after we found some of the stained-glass windows broken in our temple, Congregation Beth Israel, on Beauregard. Officer J. Cannady arrived promptly. Although I'm sure he knew there was little he could do, he walked our property, viewed the damage, took information, and acted in a concerned and professional manner. I appreciate his and your department's response.
Jeff Lisson on Aug 13, 2011
An elderly gentleman wandered into my office stating that he was lost. Officer Zapata responded and, after some dilligent detective work managed to find and contact his daughter. I was very impressed with officer Zapata as to his attitude, compassion, and training. Alzheimers can be difficult to deal with, and the department has obviously given training in that area. What could have turned out badly on a very hot day had a good ending. My compliments to officer Zapata and to the SAPD as a whole. Thank you.

It is a useful endeavor to give citizens as much information as possible so that they can assist the department appropriately. He was professional, prepared, and a good example of who should be on the force. Thank you.

Last week my child was getting in trouble at school. In fear of going down the wrong road, I told my child we had to go to SAPD to give a statement of the incident he participated in. Officer Bylsma was at the front desk and agreed to participate in my scare tactic. He gave my child all the facts of delinquents etc. I want to personally thank him for this and taking the time to care. He was so convincing, for a moment I was scared until I remembered he actually wasn't in trouble. THANK YOU!!! I hope this works!

I have to give credit where credit is due. This is in reference to a customer dispute with one of your local Clothing stores (05-28-10). Emotions were running high with a customer and the store staff. Officer Fincher along with two other Officers handled the situation with extreme professionalism. I was very much impressed by their conduct. They are a credit to your department.

I am so sorry but I didn't get his name.
Thank you to the officer that assisted me this morning. He was very kind and helpful. My van died at the intersection of Bowie and 42nd. The officer helped push it out of the way and then looked under the hood to discover why it wouldn't run. I appreciate everything you did and the kindness you showed. It is wonderful to know that we have such wonderful people like you working such an important job. I would like to apologize for you having to be out in the rain and hope you quickly warmed up and dried off. I hope you have a good day and a great weekend! Thank you so much again!

On November 28, 2009, my wallet disappered while I was at Walmart on Sherwood Way. After looking extensively for it, I called the police. The officer who took my statement was very courteous, professional and sympathetic to my situation. In this day and age when lack of respect for authority seems to be the norm, I would like to thank him for his professionalism and let him know that he has my respect and appreciation.
Also, I have attended Adoration at my Church during the wee hours of the morning. I have noticed the police presence on Avenue N (the route I travel) and in the area of the Adoration Chapel. I greatly appreciate this and it makes me feel safer when I go to Adoration in the middle of the night.
Thank you so much to the entire San Angelo Police Department

Congratulations on your new son. Keep up the good work in the community. Policer officers are not recognized often enough.So THANKS for all you do!
Jacky Payne on Jun 25, 2009
Officer Herndon pulled me over for a tail light needing to be replaced. I was issued a Fix & Dismiss citation-- but the reason I'm making this compliment is because he was one of the nicest cops I have ever had the pleasure of issuing me a citation. He introduced himself, and even asked if there was anything else that he could do for me. We were all struck by his polite demeanor, and since it was very refreshing and appreciated I thought I'd give him a job well done comment on here, and I will promptly take care of the tail light. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your courteous and professional assistance when my vehicle was burglarized. You responded in what seemed like three minutes at the most, took care of the issue, and justice was served! Great work!!!!!!!

Officer Alan Hill
Chief Vasquez you are blessed and privileged to have Officer Hill on your force. Officer Hill goes above and beyond the call of duty. I am a student at the university studying criminal justice and as a class project I had to interview a police officer. Not only did Officer Hill answer my many questions for my paper, he helped me with my research for my presentation. It showed me that our city was actively encouraging higher education. Thank you so much for all of your help Officer Hill in supporting higher education!
Sam Hernandez on Apr 28, 2009
Just want to THANK YOU for your encouragement and Im praying that I will be able to become a part of the San Angelo Police. THANK YOU!!!
ALMA RAMOS on Apr 24, 2009
I would like to thank officer K.L Dye on his demeanor during what appeared to be an out of control situation. Mr. Dye remained calm, professional and attentive to the events that took place. He is a true asset to the force and we are very fortunate to have officers like Mr. Dye working for the San Angelo police department.

Received speeding ticket 3/17/09 near Fannin School.
I came off Glenna where speed limit is 45 onto 29th (30) & motorcycle cop followed behind me until I stopped at red light just past Fannin. Only after setting thru the red light & the light turned green did the cop flash me & gave me a ticket for 39 in a 30.
Is that proper? To follow 3 or 4 blocks & wait thru a traffic signal to decide if he's going to ticket me or not....
Seemed very strange, since he made no attempt to stop me at the actual time I was speeding, but after sitting thru the light 3 blocks away...
Donna Bradley on Apr 10, 2009
Thank you for a very quick and timely investigation of the hit and run accident I was involved in. Even though the other person did not have insurance, you found them and I was able to proceed with my claim and get it resolved very promptly... Chief Vasquez...you have a great bunch of guys working for you.
John Hayes on Apr 05, 2009
I just wanted to thank you for making a presence on Loop 306 near the Bryant exit. Thank you for slowing down the other drivers and helping me to get to and from work safely. I appreciate each of you making a differnce and hope you all keep safe while doing your job.

We would like to thank the SAPD for handling some of the recent situations in our town and neighborhood. We are thankful they are brave and willing to take on the bad guys.
Rosa H on Mar 08, 2009
Just wanted to say thanks for working to slow down, and hopefully end the crime at all of the storage units in town. I manage many of them and have noticed all of the help with the break ins/investigations recently. Due to the time that you take I have noticed a huge drop in break ins over the past few months. Thanks again, Jim
Jimmy Hunter on Feb 03, 2009
Officer Hernandez is one of the police officer that come to Glenn Middle School. He is absolutely great not only doing his job but more than that. He communicates with the other students there. He can light up any situation or just bring smiles on peoples faces. He has that certain sense of humor than lingers around him.
jered thomason on Jan 30, 2009
I want to thank Officer Palmer for his kindness and sense of humor. I was going a bit too fast in my neighborhood and was pulled over to receive a warning. When asked for my license, I grabbed my Debit card out of my wallet. He laughed and kindly told me that it was not what he needed. We had a great laugh over the fact that the Debit card is what I must pull out of my wallet most often. Thank you Officer Palmer for your good humor and kindness.

After several officers had a busy morning with the
"Shop with a Cop" program on Sat the 13th., they were taking a large group of the kids to Mr Gatti's for lunch. I sort of jokingly asked Officer Dornhecker if he could do an unlock on our "very locked" up car. He almost beat me to the car and had it open in about 45 seconds. He made the rest of our granddaughter's birthday party a lot more stress free. Thanks!!
Larry M. Lindsey on Dec 19, 2008
JUST WANTED TO SAY THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION..

Coming home from work my husband and I saw an officer coming north on Bell St stop traffic and put his lights on. As he got out of the car we saw that there was an animal laying in the road.
I know that your depart. is under staffed, and it must be easy to become task orientated with more important issues, but it is wonderful to know that you have kind compassionate

Friends, I was born raised and educated in San Angelo but have lived in Colorado for many years. Recently my wife and I returned for my mother's 90th birthday. We always enjoy coming to San Angelo, it is a pleasant and beautiful little city. We were heading for our motel Thursday, September 11 when the right front wheel fell off our Jeep liberty on Johnson Street in front of the Verizon building during five o'clock traffic. Officer Doll happened up on the scene and deftly directed traffic and helped us get our wounded vehicle out-of-the-way. He was courteous, professional, and friendly and stayed on the scene until the tow truck arrived. Sometimes I forget how friendly and helpful West Texans can be. Officer Doll reminded me. Thanks, Ron Cosper, Evergreen Colorado

All of San Angelo Police Officers and Staff
We wanted to convey our deep appreciation to all of you for your hard work done so well!! I am always so proud to tell people in other cities how great you folks are. My personal experience with law inforcement came when my home was destroyed by teenage burglars. I was amazed when in 2 hours you people had identified and had already begun gathering my stolen items!!! I also am very grateful to all the Officers that respond to our neighborhood here on Van Zandt. You people are "TOP SHELF" in law inforcement and as citizens of San Angelo!! God Bless You And Keep You Safe!!

You sure have one gigantic fiasco going on in San Angelo, Tx! How many times is Texas going to repeat Waco? One large scale government raid after another on religious people who seem to be doing nothing more than minding their own business. The so called "facts" of this case (e.g., mystery 16 year old girl) have all but disappeared and what's left makes everyone in Texas look bad.
Jason Canon on Apr 16, 2008
Entire Police Department and State of Texas
Just wanted to add my personal thanx as well to the courageous San Angelo Police Department and State of Texas for addressing the horrendous situation taking place under the guise of religion on the FSLDS site. Please know there are MANY people across this country who support you whole-heartedly in your efforts to rescue these helpless children and, god-willing, resurrect some sanity in their mothers.
At least in Texas there are still some true Americans willing to take a risk and make hard and difficult choices to benefit the at-risk, the helpless, the abused.

Nicole Boehm on Apr 15, 2008
Thank You - everyone
I have been trying to figure out how to send a message to all of the courageous police officers and child protection employees in Texas who had the guts to go in and pull those children to safety. I hope this will reach them.
Words cannot describe my joy at finally seeing someone do something. I cannot imagine how difficult it must have been to have the patience
to wait until you had enough evidence to go in "en masse." It must have been brutal, knowing what was going on and not being able to move on it.
I have been reading about these sub-human men for a long time, have followed this disgusting practice of enslavement, brain washing and misuse of public welfare funds to finance their private pedophyle paradise. No less evil than the Talaban, these traitors to democracy, have desecrated the joys and rights of children, and the natural, God-given bonding of mother, father and child. Love is not a word they either understand nor honor.
My deepest thanks and praise go to you all. My prayers go also to you, and to these children, their mis-guided mothers and the generous-hearted individuals who will help them transition into a more healthy, loving life.

Officer Alan Hill and Karen, Dispatcher
While out on patrol last week, Officer Hill noticed that our back door was open. He made sure that our house hadn't been broken into and called dispatch to have them inform me of the situation. I was off-campus at the time and difficult to reach, but Karen, the dispatch officer, made sure I got the message. This type of service reflects very highly on the SAPD, and makes San Angelo a great place to live. Thank you, Officer Hill and Karen!
Aaron Oliver on Mar 18, 2008
I would like to commend Todd Dornhecker for making my neighborhood safer, and for doing his job to that end. While I was working late in the evening on night, he noticed my garage was open and took the time to make sure everything was ok. My wife and I were very impressed with his caring attitude and professional demeanor. The Police department should be proud to have a member like him.
Mark Lack on Feb 19, 2008
Several officers, see message
I am an administrator at San Angelo Central High School. Each day, we are blessed to have SAPD and/or LPPD officers on our campus to assist us in supervising the learning environment. These officers include, but are not limited to:
Sergeant Dornhecker, Officer Elrod, Officer Ed Smith, Officer Heronema, Officer Chappa (LPPD), Officer Yarbrough (LPPD), Officer Garza, Officer Medley, Officer Delaughter, Officer Anderson (City Marshal), and Officer Nunez (City Marshal). Each and every day, these fine officers can be counted upon to provide outstanding support to campus students, teachers, and administration. Their consistently high degree of professionalism and selfless service reflects great credit on the San Angelo Police Department. We highly appreciate your work.
