Johnson: Hats off the Breckenridge police (letter)

As a part-time resident of Breckenridge for the past 16 years I have never had any interaction with the Breckenridge police until Thursday night. Following the Ullr Fest parade, I approached two officers who are very busy to seek help locating a memory challenged loved one. In spite of having a million other things to do, they could not have been more responsive. In short order a command post was organized and a search implemented. During the search every officer I came in contact with was very reassuring and understanding. The story has a happy ending, but for someone who was cold, lost, and disoriented it could have been far different if not for the prompt action of all the officers involved.
