Something You Dont See Every Day

Went into one of the community teams offices the other day. Being the nosey person I am, I read the stuff on the walls whilst the kettle boils.

What do I see, on the wall?

A Card. A Thank-you card - from a prolific offender who was on drugs. I hadnt heard his name for a good few months now. It said something along the lines of:

"Dear PC Williams and PC Smiggins, thank you very much for your help and support you have given me and making me turn my life around. I am so greatful and have realised that I do not want to go down that path. I have now been clean for 3 months now and have found a job too."

Its good to hear things like this - the police can do positive things after all! Just a shame that no government statistic will cover this.

This bod's probably been written off by many as a waste of space in the past... It's nice to know that with a bit of effort we can make a difference!

Good luck and congratulations to all concerned.

Give it a few more months and things may be different.
Not wanting to be cynical but I have seen people go for months clean before they are bang at it again.
Hope I am wrong but keep your eye on him.
