Findlay Mayor Christina Muryn got an up-close look at the police department, and other agencies, in action during a ride-along with an officer.
Muryn says she saw quite a bit of action during her ride-along, which went from 4 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. Friday.
“During the time we had a medical call that ended with someone having to be booked, and there was a car accident, and then another individual we had to take to the jail. We stayed busy.”
She says this was her first formal ride-along with the police department and she’s planning one with the fire department and Hanco EMS as well.
The mayor says her biggest takeaway from the ride-along was how well the police department, fire department, Hanco and the sheriff’s office work together when they’re on the same scene.
“Overall I continue to be impressed by our safety services.”
So, did she get to slap the handcuffs on anyone?
“No, I left that to the professionals,” she said laughing.
