On May 25, 2018, a female came to the station to request a report be written about a civil issue. She explained her husband left her years ago. He does not financially support her or her four children. She works night shift so that she can support the family and still be available during the daytime to manage the kids to and from school. She recently began the divorce process with her estranged husband. She still depends on him watching the kids for about two hours a day. She was afraid that after receiving the divorce papers he would lock her out of her house. She was explained that KPD does not typically document civil issues like hers. She was told that officers would respond if there was a disturbance or a crime. She was in tears after hearing this. She explained that she did not know if she was strong enough to continue to support her kids on her own. She said her teenage daughter helps with some of the bills with a part-time job. Her 12-year-old son recently told her that he knows that he needs to step up and be the man of the house. She was sad, frustrated and scared that her kids are not living their childhood. She provided additional background about the kids and herself and was verified to be true. She was dressed in worn but clean clothing, her vehicle was simple but clean. When asked about her financial situation she reluctantly told the officer. Sergeant Littrell and Officer Harrington took her to Fred Meyer and purchased some clothing and food for her and the kids. She was overwhelmed by the generosity and very thankful. Fred Meyer staff discounted the total purchase by 26%.
