It's March of 1963. The time is approximately 11:30PM. Patricia Weir boards the bus following her shift at the Paramount Theater in Phoenix. She exits the bus at her stop at 7th Street and Marlette Avenue. As Patricia makes her way home, a man whom she does not know grabs her and forces her into his vehicle-- she is kidnapped, bound, and raped. Following the assault, Patricia's attacker drops her off near her home. 

At around 2AM, Phoenix Police Department receives a call from Patricia’s home at 1014 E. Citrus Way. Detective Carroll Cooley is assigned to the case.

You Have The Right To Remain Silent

It's March, 1963. The time is approximately 11:30PM. Patricia Weir boards the bus following her shift at the Paramount Theater in Phoenix. The young woman exits the bus at her stop at 7th Street and Marlette Avenue. As she walks down her quiet street, Patricia is assaulted by a man whom she does not know; she is kidnapped, bound, and raped. After the assault, Patricia's attacker drops her off near her home. 

At around 2AM, Phoenix Police Department receives a call from Patrica's home at 1014 E. Citrus Way. Detective Carroll Cooley is assigned to the case. In the days following, it would be discovered that the culprit is a man by the name of Ernesto Miranda.

Steve, a retired Phoenix Firefighter, shares the story of a call that will stay with him forever.

It’s circa 1990. 2AM. A three-story nightclub on Mill Avenue in Tempe catches fire. The building is old and has been renovated time and time again. Hidden spaces behind walls and beneath floors conceal fire and smoke. Electricity in the building remains on due to crews being unable to gain access to secure power to the building. These elements create a false sense of security- an illusion that the fire is not as advanced as it truly is. While Steve is conducting search and rescue on the second floor, the ceiling above collapses around him.

In April of 2016, Stephen Gunn (an Engineer with Peoria Fire & Medical Department) and 70 other firefighters were dispatched to a house fire near 75th Avenue and Thunderbird. A Peoria home was engulfed in flames following a home invasion that ended in arson, and firefighters received several reports from bystanders and officers that someone was trapped inside. 

Stephen Gunn charged into the burning building through a window that had blown out from the heat of the fire. As Gunn crawled under the smoke, his helmet began to melt, his turnouts blackened, and his ears began to burn. Had Gunn been in the building for just 15 to 20 seconds longer, his turnout gear would have caught Fire. Gunn recovered the victim, a 73-year-old man, in less than 45 seconds and passed the victim to his captain.

Stephen was treated at Arizona Burn Center for his burns but was back at work for his next shift. Gunn was awarded the Medal of Valor in Washington D.C. this year. The Medal of Valor is the highest recognition for public safety personnel.

Be Kind

While on night patrol in 2014, Officer Sheffert and his partner came across a Young man sprinting down a busy roadway. The Teen’s behavior was strange for the neighborhood and the officers stopped him. The young man, Anthony Shultz, explained that he was out for a run because he was training for a wrestling match; Anthony was 16 years old. After talking for a few minutes, the three parted ways. 

Their paths would cross again when Sheffert responded to a domestic altercation call at a small apartment about a month later. The one-bedroom was home to Anthony and his seven family members. Following that call, Sheffert checked on Anthony frequently, talking with him for almost an hour each day. 

One day, Sheffert received a call from Anthony’s mother; she was kicking Anthony out of the house. The Sheffert family saved Anthony from homelessness and took him in as one of their own. Brandon Sheffert’s kindness changed Anthony’s life forever; Anthony became the first of his family to graduate high school in nearly 30 years and is entering the military this year.
