Deborah Clark, a Charlotte, N.C. resident, wrote to Mayor Sylvester Turner to thank HPD Officer Jerry Bennett. Bennett assisted Clark in recovering her lost purse.
"I was returning home on Saturday when the person I was riding with drove off with my purse in her car. I found a policeman who went above and beyond the call of duty to track her down and get my purse back. It contained my cellphone as well as my identification that I needed to fly home to Charlotte, NC. His name is Jerry Bennett. He was very polite and extremely helpful," Clark wrote.
