Subject: Officer DelosSantos

Comment:  On 10/18/18 in rush hour traffic, my mom's axel [sic] rod broke causing her car to stop in heavy lanes of traffic on Pearl Ave. Officer DelosSantos was on his way to another call but saw my mom in distress. He safely got her out of the car and to the side of the road. He waited with her until the tow truck and I got there. He even gave us a short ride home.

I’m sure that was his job but his extraordinary kindness, empathy, and customer service went a long way. He treated my mother with kindness above and beyond what was necessary.

We appreciate him and the SJPD.

Thank you for keeping our community safe!
