Re: Court Officer Louis S.

Dear Captain R.:

I am writing this letter to strongly commend the hard work and efforts of Court Officer Louis S.

Officer S. has the unique ability to effectively communicate. I have personally observed Officer S. diffuse potentially dangerous situations by his manner and professionalism. Whenever there is an emergent issue in our courthouse, Officer Scara is present to assist.

I have further observed Officer S.'s extraordinary diligence when stationed in our lobby and at the front desk.

Court Officer S.'s exemplary work is much appreciated by myself and my staff. He appears to be a role model for the other officers and I highly recommend Officer Louis S. for any promotional opportunity or career advancement.

Very truly yours,

Ralph J. P.
