I would like to commend Officer Gallagher of the Campbell Police Department for the excellent service I received from him and his dispatcher today.
The day started with an attempted assault against my person and vandalism of my car at a gas station while my blind, 6-year-old daughter and 2-year-old daughter sat strapped in their car seats. Campbell’s dispatcher took my call and insisted on sending an officer to my location, concerned I am sure for the safety of my little girls.
Officer Gallagher arrived within minutes. Unfortunately the subject had just driven off.
Officer Gallagher is an exemplary example of law enforcement at it’s finest.
He exhibited great patience listening to my explanation of events that led to my calling the Campbell Police. He offered his department’s support and had some good suggestions regarding handling similar situations in the future.
Unlike other officers I have had contact with in other cities, Officer Gallagher was patient, professional, community oriented, and his skill set was admirable.
Officer Gallagher provided excellent execution of his duties. He is an exemplary ambassador not only for the Campbell Police Department, but also for the city of Campbell and police departments everywhere.
( I wrote this letter at the suggestion of the person who writes your excellent "Campbell Patch" on Facebook after I posted regarding this incident/officer).
