Compassionate cops

(This letter was originally addressed to Aspen Police Chief Loren Ryerson.)

This past autumn we had a situation that required the services of the Aspen Police Department. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank officers Joe Holman, Linda Consuegra and Melinda Calvano. Their efforts resulted in a positive conclusion to an ugly circumstance.

What really impressed us was the level of professionalism that all three demonstrated. They responded very quickly and thoroughly. We were shown compassion, courtesy and respect.

Thank you for choosing a path of public service. We really appreciate you.
