Police willing, ready to help

When I recently became aware that a new patient had given fake information to get a prescription and wanted to make sure she was stopped, my office manager contacted Chief John Foster of the Grass Valley police. He made his officers instantly available when the woman presented again at Springhill Pharmacy for another prescription. With the cooperation of Dave DeMartini, the woman was identified and arrested. I never had such attentive help from local law enforcement in the Bay Area in similar situations. I was very impressed with our “small town” police force. Thanks again to Chief Foster.
