I wanted to take the time to let you know what an asset Trooper M.R. Wilder, badge 2334, is to FHP and the community.
I was recently involved in an accident in which Trooper Wilder responded to. He was very efficient and professional in the manner that he handled the situation, especially when the other driver gave him of bit of “attitude”. However, what really impressed me most is the impression he left on my 4 year old son. After providing me with the accident report, Trooper Wilder extended his hand to shake Alexander’s, asking him about his day in school. Alexander was thrilled! He led Trooper Wilder to our vehicle so he could show off the projects he had completed. Officer Wilder was sincere in his interest, asking questions and patiently allowing my son the time to explain.
Those few minutes that Trooper Wilder took with my son meant the world to him. The smallest of gestures can make a significant impact, especially in children. An authority figure, which can be intimidating to a child, was now a positive role model.
Thank you Trooper Wilder for your contribution to our community and for keeping us safe.
