STRANDED NO MORE

On July 5, 2015, Denver Police Officers assigned to Denver International Airport learned that an Ethiopian soccer team was stranded on Concourse A. Unable to pay for baggage fees that they were not originally aware of, the players were unable to board their flight. After learning this, Officer Sprague headed to the Concourse A to see if he could lend any assistance in coordinating this issue with the airline. At about 3 o’clock in the afternoon, Officer W. Albright and Officer Sprague met with the airline’s passenger supervisor who informed them that the players were short $1,840 for baggage fees and flight change fees due to being denied boarding on their originally booked flight. The officers then met with the soccer team’s captain, and explained that 18 players did not have the funds to pay the unexpected fee, preventing them from continuing their team trip. The officers then went back to the airline’s passenger supervisor and worked out a plan. The airline agreed to waive the baggage fees and some of the other costs, dropping the balance due from over $1,800 to $400. Without hesitation, Officers Greg Ceccacci, Officer J. Sewald, Officer Jode Sprague, and Officer Mark Miller donated their own personal funds to cover the remaining balance.

Thanks to the generosity of these four officers, the once-stranded team was rebooked, and placed on later flights!

Cop Talk

For all things about cop culture-the work, the family, the days off.

The purpose of this page is to educate writers of all genres to be accurate in their portrayal of law enforcement professionals. This includes meter maids (I was a "lovely Rita" many years ago), dispatcher, patrol officers, detectives, and administrators.

I have many resources in my 35 year career in California law enforcement. I index and explain common errors that found in all media. Guests will also post about police professionalism today and tomorrow as well as historical articles about the way things used to be, "back in the day".

Examples of police media myths: missing persons cannot be reported by anyone but the family; missing persons reports can't be taken until the subject has been missing 24 hours; all cops eat donuts.

You get my drift.

Guest writers Gerry Goldshine, Hal Collier, Melissa Kositzin and sometime Woody Hoke take us through the days and nights of those who protect and serve. Extra postings will include California 'Officer Down' notices or something special. I will update progress of my current literary project as they develop. --Thonie Hevron
