[ARCHIVED] Silent Service - Acknowledging the Small Things Our Police Family Does for Our Community Everyday

Sunset, Police logo, "Silent Service, Acknowledging the small things our Police Family Does

The Kalispell Police Dept. would like to share with you some of the positive things our Police community does to make a difference that may go unknown or unnoticed. These ‘Silent Services’ were shared by peers or from people like you. 

Our first example of a Silent Service we are calling - the Case of the Coin Purse. It is not always easy to track down the owner of property that comes into the station. Recently officers took in a coin purse containing $363.82, and a debit card a customer had left at Murdoch’s. (Shout out to the employees for turning it in with all money intact!) After a simple search did not reveal the owner, several police dept. administrative staff worked together to solve the mystery. When they called the debit card bank, they would not provide a contact number or contact the customer themselves, but did provide an out of state zip code. This led to a driver’s license #, which led to an address, which then led to a phone number through google search. The purse belonged to a 72 year-old tourist who had been visiting a Bigfork friend the week before. She was certainly happy to get her purse back with all contents intact!
