Cops Responded Immediately When Sought for Aid

The efficiency of the Ridgefield Police was given corroboration Tuesday night, at the council meeting, when a letter was received from a resident of the borough complimenting the prompt manner in which the department responded to a call for assistance.

A verbatim copy of the letter follows:

“Gentlemen:

“On Thursday night, January 14th, a prowler was observed looking into the kitchen windows of my mother’s home.  Mrs. Stansfield immediately telephoned the police and within three minutes, two officials from the Department were at the house investigating, but the offender, apparently realizing that he had been detected, had in the meantime, disappeared.

“May we not express our appreciation of the prompt action of Sergeant Gallagher and the two officers who answered the call, and congratulate through your Honorable Body, the Police Department on their efficiency and alertness.

“It is comforting, indeed, to know that in a case of emergency, an immediate response can be expected of our local Police.

“Yours very truly,
“CHESTER T. STANSFIELD.”
