Two articles in this week’s (Dec. 2) paper prompt me to write to thank the Quincy Police, the Grant County Sheriff’s Office, and the Moses Lake Tactic Response Team (MLTRT) for working together to do their job.

In each event described in the articles, a person was behaving dangerously and was obviously out of control, which can lead to someone getting hurt or killed. Cool heads noticed and responded by calling for support to “de-escalate”, which is exactly what happened. What a pleasure to read about people choosing to do the right thing.

Thanks to the agencies and the officers involved.

Sally Curren, Quincy
