BOLO: Inconspicuous Alcohol Containers

Does anyone know what all these containers have in common? They are all alcoholic beverages. From the perfume bottle to the whipped cream can, all contain alcohol and these are the actual containers they are sold in! Parents: if you see these types of objects in your kid’s vehicle, you may want to do a double take, especially with St. Patty’s upon us. If you do find something like this, please notify us, as there may be a serious ABLE Commission violation that we can investigate.

Letter of thanks to one of our officers

We received a wonderful letter from a concerned citizen who was touched in a positive way by the actions of one of our officers.  Here is what he had to say:

Chief Groseclose, 

I wanted to take a moment to applaud the efforts of one of your fine officers, Officer James Hall. As you know, Officer Hall recently made news of the tremendous gift of giving a bike to a young man who had a bike he worked and saved for stolen. The part of this story that so touched me when I first heard about the robbery was the fact that this young man has autism. Having a son, about the same age also living with autism, this story saddened me and it was truly devastating to know that this young man had something so dear to him taken away in such a disturbing way.
 
Today, I saw in the news that Officer Hall, being touched by the story, took it upon himself to make it right. This is truly a commendable and honorable act and on behalf of my organization, myself and my son; I want to thank him for making a difference for this young man. Officer Hall is a hero and epitomizes remarkable service to the public.
 
In the past year I have had the great honor of teaching many of Utah’s police officers about autism with my friend and teaching partner Lt. Mark Lowther of the Weber County Sheriff’s Office about autism. Having the opportunity to talk with law enforcement about this invisible disability is not only of critical importance, but it also gives me a tremendous appreciation for the selfless work you do to protect your communities. Learning more about the needs of its community members allows all of us, first responders and community members, gain a greater understanding of each other’s challenges and needs. It is obvious, from stories like this, Officer Hall has a great deal of compassion for those in his community and I am grateful to him for that. Please send Officer Hall my best regards!
 
Thank you for your time Chief Groseclose and best wishes,

James S. Vaughn
