The City of Mar­i­on con­grat­u­lates Offi­cer Joshua Swan­son for excel­lence in his work and going above his call of duty. Below is a let­ter from a Mar­i­on cit­i­zen thank­ing Offi­cer Swan­son for his assis­tance the night of the Walk­way of Lights Christ­mas Parade…

(I) have to take a minute to THANK and rec­og­nize an offi­cer from the Mar­i­on Police Depart­ment. Yes you read that right. .…An offi­cer came up and asked me to move my truck as I was in his emer­gency route. I explained to him that we were sit­ting in the truck because the boys didn’t have coats on. He had me back up and park the wrong way so we could still watch the parade. He came up about 5 min­utes lat­er and asked how many kids need­ed coats. I said I had my coat that one of my sons could put on but the oth­er would still need one. He took off his coat and gave it to him so we didn’t have to sit in the truck. He then stood out dur­ing the whole freez­ing cold parade in a t-shirt so that my son could have his coat. Offi­cer Swan­son, THANK YOU from the bot­tom of my heart. I see so much neg­a­tiv­i­ty towards our police, and I want to make sure this man gets rec­og­nized for what he did tonight. Thank you again, Offi­cer Swan­son! You real­ly made my kids’ night!”
