I am emailing APD simply to extend my gratitude for how officer Benjamin Hart -AP7544 handled my first adult arrest on the morning of Wednesday, February 24th. I was taken to jail after my arrest for a DWI - manifesting my worst fear. Throughout the entirety of the process, Officer Hart thoroughly and patiently answered all of my questions, unknowingly keeping my anxiety at bay. With this having been my first experience in jail, I was honestly terrified and Officer Hart did what he could to ensure I was calm, collected and constantly in the know about my situation. I would very much like to thank him again for being a shining example of what it means to be a police officer. He did his job by taking me off the streets in my inebriated state, while still treating me with the utmost respect. Thank you, as well, APD!
