Ms. R wanted everyone to know what a good job Ofc. Arcos did.

  • "To all police in Burlington: "Thank you for saving my niece's life March 14 of this year. I don't know who the officers were that found her passed on the street. I especially thank you for bringing her back to life. I think she would have died if they had not found her. She has done her time in jail, has a good job 6 days a week. Thank God for all of you. She is off drugs and off the streets. I thank every policeman and woman for what they are doing to get drugs out of Burlington and I got down on my knees and asked God to help or send her to jail. I think he answered by sending her to jail. All of you stay safe and keep up the good work. "Thank you "I prayed for him to help two days before she got arrested."
