Personal skills gave me confidence

Dear Chief Constable,

I am writing to inform you of the excellent help I received from two of your police officers both based in Leek, Staffordshire.

On Saturday 30th, July my 93 year old father who has Alzheimer's went missing whilst walking my Labrador dog.

I was very impressed by the empathic, thoughtful approach of P.C. Lisa Waring. Her life experience and enjoyment of her job was evident to myself. I was obviously concerned as the hours ticked by waiting for some news regarding my father. Throughout this time her professional and personal skills gave me confidence that my father would be found.

This feeling was strengthened by Sgt Dominic Young who during the search kept me informed of any developments. His attitude was courteous and efficient, I felt he listened to me which was important as I was anxious. 

Police Car Edited SmallOne further point:

I noted all the police officers involved continued the search until my father was found despite the fact that their shifts had ended.

My father was found safe and well later that afternoon. I am in process of purchasing a tracking device so if this happens again at least we will be able to locate him without contacting the police.

As a member of the general public I really feel you should be aware of my experience of your Leek officers.

I have personally thanked Sgt Young and he is aware I am writing to you.
