To the editor:
Rather than a complaint, I would like to give a word of appreciation to a female Lawrence police officer. Around 7 p.m. on or about March 5, it was pouring down rain outside and a car stalled at the intersection of 23rd and Louisiana streets. Rather than sit in her car, the Lawrence police officer helped push the car over to the gas station and get it off the street and out of the way of moving traffic.
I feel that this police officer went far beyond her duties to help a stalled motorist. Not only did she help the stalled motorist and save the motorist unnecessary towing fees, but she also helped prevent what could have been a traffic jam. I just wanted to say thanks to this police officer for helping a motorist in a time of need.
