Letter: Excellent officers

To the Editor:

I want everyone to know about some of the excellent officers of the Kane County Sheriff’s Office.

Feb. 5 was not a day to be out and about. The roads were terrible. But these officers eased my mind by doing a wellness check for a family member on Empire Road this afternoon – the officers were deputy Shawn Barrows, deputy Dave Thorgesen and Sgt. Chris Peeler.

Their calming manner, professionalism, calls to check on how I was as I drove out from DeKalb and offering to go inside the house for me were very much appreciated. I was sure the outcome was not going to be good, yet it all turned out to be fine. I sang all the way home to DeKalb. 

You are the greatest. Next time I’m in St. Charles, I’ll look you up, and my husband and I owe you a big steak dinner. 

Thank you again. St. Charles is lucky to have such caring officers.
