Officer Chavez,

I remember the day like it was yesterday. A day I will never forget. I had the chance to meet you when you took a report for my sister when her license plate was stolen. You were such a nice lady who took down the necessary details for the report. I thank you for your dedication and service to our community. It an honor to serve the same department and to share our last name.
