Date and time: 11/7/16 evening
Location of interaction: Gardena PD
Citizen Name: Lynn Yamasaki
Description of incident: Hello,
I just wanted to send a quick note of thanks to the Gardena Police Department for their kindness and assistance last week. My aunt with dementia had gone missing for 30 hours and thankfully her story had a happy ending but, it caused my family a great deal of worry. When we went to you for assistance we were treated with such professionalism, care and compassion. Sgt. Cuff sat with me and my cousin and clearly explained what was being done to try to locate my aunt. While we were there, we, along with others who came through your doors were assisted quickly and treated with a great deal of respect. Det. Choi was assigned to her case and was quick to return phone calls and also was very clear and helpful in explaining and listening. You provided hope for us during a frightening time and we appreciate it. I am a new resident of Gardena and I was very impressed and grateful for your presence in the city I now call home.

Many thanks and much gratitude,
Lynn Yamasaki
