Late in 2018, a Prescott Valley Police Sergeant experienced a stroke and was hospitalized for several days, followed by several weeks of rehabilitation.

The timing could not have been worse. He was building his new home and was planning on getting the roof installed before the monsoon season.

A call went out for help and heroes responded to the hero. Several police officers and civilian employees assisted with installing the roof, electrical, windows, siding and other aspects of the construction project. The business community also responded to the need.

Over 20 truckloads of pea gravel and dirt were provided by Donaldson Trucking, BLA Trucking and Cemex Concrete. Command Roofing also assisted in putting on the roof, and Pump Tech donated a pump system.

The value of all donations was over $10,000.

The Police Sergeant is now back to work full-time and is overwhelmed with the teamwork and contributions made on behalf of his family.

“Not only does the Prescott Valley Police Chief, Bryan Jarrell, encourage his officers to make meaningful contact with members of the community, he is pleased with the meaningful relationships among his department personnel,” said PVPD spokesperson Jerry Ferguson.
