On September 11th, the Ralston Police Department received several cards from residents thanking them for their service to the community. Police Chief Ron Murtaugh says no one was more surprised than him to find that one card contained a check for $10,000.
Chief Murtaugh says, “There were no stipulations. The card read invest it in training, equipment, school safety or whatever the needs of the department and the community are.”
Chief Murtaugh says they are considering several options as what to do with the extra funds. He said there are several speed warning signs around schools that are getting old and need replacement and some of the money may go to that project and go from there. The donor wishes to remain anonymous.
