    Beautiful job Officer Hill.
    Not much of a TV watcher, but I happened to catch a show where a female and a male officer responded to a 911 call made by a woman who complained about her son hoarding a bunch of animals. Upon arrival they rang the bell and I listened for barking, to get an idea of how many and what kind of dogs the officers may be facing upon entering this house. After they knocked, no barking, not even a "meooow". The woman's son came from behind the house and told him his mom had alzheimers disease. Of course the Officers had to talk to the caller, long story short she starting pointing out animals that weren't there.
    What the officers did next imo went over and beyond the call. They allowed the lady to point out the invisible animals, and they pretended to remove every one of them from the home for her, no jest, no "ma'am there's no animals here".
    The female officer went under beds, under curtains the whole The female Officer later explained why she took on that approach, she said she has a grandmother in the late stages of Alzheimers.
