Retired Police Officers Visit Local Station, and the Memories Flow!

In celebration of National Law Enforcement Day, three former police officers from Porter Place Memory Care paid a visit to their local police station in Chicago. George Berryman, Tom Manion, and Curtis Cowsen dropped in to share memories and a batch of fresh baked cookies. The visit was heartwarming for the officers who enjoyed hearing stories from the retired police veterans. Even though they are living with dementia, they still remember the service they once provided to their own communities.

The visit was covered by local NBC TV station Channel 5. You can watch the full video here:
