Caring for the people they serve
Shout out to a Logansport Police Officer, Alec Vantuinen!
A few weeks ago we were on our way home from a medical procedure at St. Vincent Hospital, when our car broke down. We were stopped in Galveston along side the road when Alec Vantuiene stopped to check on us. He helped my husband get the car started and followed us when we broke down again in Lincoln.
He said that he had gone to Kokomo to get dinner for him and his wife when he spotted us. He also said he was a Logansport Police Officer. He stopped behind our car to help.
I was feeling very ill and needed to get home. He offered to take me home while my husband attempted to get the car going again.
Officer Vantuinen did say that he had to drop the food off for his wife in Walton first. He then took me home in Logansport. When we arrived, he insisted in walking me to the door to make sure that I was OK.
The next day Officer Vantuinen’s lieutenant, Adam Morrow, stopped by to check on me and to verify what happened and to see if I was OK. Thank you, LPD, for caring about the people you serve.
