Making A Difference

On the night of Feb 1, 2019 Officer Bertelson drove to our house in response to a request for a welfare check on our son, picked up a key to his apartment and called EMS when our son was discovered injured and unresponsive after a fall. Later he drove back and relayed to us what had happened, called a cab for us and waited till it arrived to take us to the hospital. We appreciate his kindness and concern and want to thank him.
