Father thanks San Jose police Officer for saving daughter


SAN JOSE (KRON) — A late night telephone call from the police resulted in thankful relief for a father.

The father received a call from police around 1:00 a.m. to learn that his daughter had been left downtown San Jose after a music event as a result of a personal issue. His daughter was without her phone, alone crying and without a way of getting home to Mountain View.

The girl found San Jose police Officer Rollins, who called her father and explained the situation.

The father and officer agreed that the father would arrange for an Uber to drive her home and that the officer would wait for the father to call back to confirm the Uber ride. Officer Rollins then stayed with his daughter until the Uber arrived to drive her home.

The father wrote to thank San Jose police Officer Rollins for his professionalism and help protecting his daughter.

Father’s thanks to Officer Rollins —

Hello, As a parent, it is not often that one receives a call from a police officer at 1am, and is relieved and thankful for the call. I want to thank Officer Rollins for being there for my daughter, Grace, when she needed help.

Grace attended a music event, and as a result of a personal issue was left outside the event in downtown San Jose at 1 am, without her phone, alone and crying, and no way to get home (Mountain View).

My daughter found Officer Rollins, who called me and explained the situation. We agreed that I would arrange for an Uber to pick her up, and he waited for me to call back and confirm the Uber. He stayed with her for the next few minutes until the Uber showed up.

I very much appreciate his professionalism, caring and ensuring that she was safe.

Best regards,
Frank L.
