Keizer police officers care

To the Editor:

On January 17, my heart stopped and my partner dialed 911.

Within minutes she said officers arrived and one officer, Jeffrey Goodman, started performing CPR on me. This officer worked on me for several minutes and would not give up on me. My partner estimates  that my heart was stopped for at least seven minutes to possibly 10 and throughout that time officer Jeffrey Goodman continued with the CPR and with a defibulator until the paramedics arrived to take over.

Since that time officer Goodman visited me in the hospital with another officer and brought me flowers just to see how I was doing. Officer Goodman paid me a visit tonight to check up on me yet again. He is a hero as far as my family and myself are concerned and mere words cannot sing his praises or the paramedics who came and relieved him enough. Keizer police officers care and the next time you start to put one down think of my story and take the time to thank and appreciate them for all they do.Thank you officer Jeffrey Goodman, you are my hero!
