Seema’s “Ride-Along” With Bellevue PD
When Seema expressed great interest in what the inside of a police car would be like, Bellevue Rotarian (and Bellevue Police Chief) Steve Mylett made it happen. He contacted Police Captain Lisa Patricelli, who arranged for a surprise pick-up at Seema’s home, complete with flowers, balloons, and a birthday cake!
Captain Lisa took Seema all around the police department, where she met many wonderful officers and administrators, who all help keep us safe and sound here in our wonderful city. Seema rode in a police car, sat on a motorcycle, learned self-defense techniques, handcuffed a dummy, got handcuffed herself, and handcuffed Captain Lisa!
To finish off Seema’s awesome day, Captain Lisa took Seema to Dairy Queen, where they met up with Captain Lisa’s husband and their English Bulldog. Seema had her first Blizzard ice cream treat and her first onion ring!
Special thanks to Steve, Lisa, and everyone at the Bellevue Police Department who helped give Seema such a warm and friendly introduction to our stellar police force.
