Praiseworthy response from Police

Two Butler men were arrested in separate pursuits.

On investigation, I noticed a man sitting on the side of the crossover along Lake Monger Drive. He was calling out for help and waving his arms in the air.

Cars drove past him but no one stopped. I debated about going over to help him but was scared as I was on my own as my husband was in hospital.

So, I called the non-emergency number for the police and a woman officer got the information out of me very gently and efficiently.

In less than five minutes, a police wagon arrived at the scene. Two officers spoke to the man for some time and the next thing I knew was the police wagon driving away.

I was able to go back to sleep, knowing that the man was not left in the cold all night.

Thank you and praise for the police’s care and efficiency.
