Dear Officer Keep,
I just want to say thank you very much for catching the thief who stole my purse. I always knew that police officers did many things to keep our community safe and help the people in the community. However, I never thought my purse could get stolen at a coffee shop, and that I could actually use your help to find it. I don't know how to thank you enough for all your help. Thank you again for everything.
