SRO Brandi Gills

I just want to reach out and thank you for all the support and help you provide to the officers at Poquoson Police Department. You always ensure that we feel supported, valued, and heard. As a coordinator to many community programs such as Shop with a Cop or Project Lifesaver, you make my job easier so I can focus on the personal part of these programs and not have to stress the finances of it. Your support does not stop there, you make sure we feel valued also. This is in the little things like educational opportunities, books, or zip-lock bags filled with essentials like hand sanitizer, wipes and snacks. This year you assisted me with a silly request for most and purchased two lamps for my office. Due to the florescent lights causing me migraines, I often sit in my office with no lights. Now I can perform my job a little better, minimizing my migraines. I truly appreciate this purchase and know it will be a huge asset to me during this and future school years. Once again, thank you for all you do and all the donors who help fund our programs and assist the officers at Poquoson Police Department.
