Citizen Assist

Jenilee Beebe was recently recognized by Mayor Tom Dolan and the city council for her actions last year when her home was burglarized. On Nov. 12 at 11:30 a.m. Beebe caught a glimpse of someone in her back yard. She then saw a van drive from her driveway very quickly. She followed the van on foot for two blocks where she flagged down a neighbor in a car to assist her. The two quickly lost the van. Beebe returned home to retrieve her own car and scoured the neighborhood looking for the van. She was able to find it. Calling 911, she coordinated with the Sandy Police Department in the arrest of two convicted felons. “Her actions to assist the police while not putting herself in undue danger made her a great recipient of this award,” Sandy Police Department Sgt. Dean Carriger said.
