To the editor:

I was completing a chore in Fairview Plaza today, when I witnessed a Greenport peace officer approach a “home free” fellowman who was having a bad day. I was heartened to see the citizen-officer respond with calm dignity; and to hear him ask the distraught friend how he could be helpful. The friend on the sidewalk sought medical attention; and I then witnessed the Greenport rescue squad promptly and gently come to his aid. Kudos to the emergency service personnel who represent the Town of Greenport, in service of humanity.
