Police assist with home repairs

Scottsdale Police Department Sergeant Scott Dersa was recently made aware of a resident who was living in a home that was damaged during a crime last spring. Concerned for the victim’s well being, Sergeant Dersa conducted a follow-up visit to the elderly victim and observed that the home's back door was still severely damaged. Partial repairs had been attempted but the plastic, duct tape, and cardboard made it impossible to secure the home.

door-before-repairs Scottsdale Police then joined forces with an anonymous neighbor and a local Lowe's in an effort to fix the victim’s broken door.  Lowe's employees Beverly Keown and Hector Garcia heard the story and quickly jumped in to help.

With their expertise and knowledge, Sergeant Dersa was able to decide on all of the replacement parts needed to make the victim’s door functional and secure.

Once all of the parts were obtained, Keown and Garcia came to the victim’s home on their own time to make the needed repairs.




























The Scottsdale Police Department would like to thank the kind neighbors, Lowe's and employees' Beverly Keown and Hector Garcia.  

Because of their help and concern, our victim was able to once again feel secure in the home that she has lived in for over 50 years.
