A Fall River police officer gave some special time to a city resident with no fanfare and the FRPD and family of the woman wanted to recognize him.

The Fall River Police Department let it be known that one of their own had gone out of their way to spend time with an elderly city resident.

Chief Gauvin received a card this week from the niece of an elderly member of the Fall River community who had passed away. From the card, PD learned that Ofc. Guy Furtado, after meeting this woman on a call, had continued to make regular visits, spending time, telling stories, and brightening her day. Ofc. Furtado reportedly never sought recognition and kept this activity to himself.

The FRPD thanked the officer and also offered condolences to the family of the deceased.

“We thank Ofc. Furtado for providing an example of the level of service and commitment our department provides to the community. We would also like to extend our condolences and a special thanks to the niece who made us aware of this incident. Our department strives to provide exceptional service to the community we serve and thank you all for your support.”
