Here is a story that Officer Gomez posted about the above piece created by Sarah VanDam:

I told a story to some Mountain View High school students about an arrest I made over the summer.  I explained to them how I arrested a young girl at a party for being a runaway.  Because of unknown drugs in her system I had to take her to the hospital to get her checked out.  As I spent the next two hours with her at the hospital I found out that she and her mother were homeless and she had been couch surfing for the last couple of weeks at unknown houses in Boise.  Her mother did not have a phone for me to contact her and have her come meet us at the hospital. 
     By policy I had to keep this young lady handcuffed while I was with her mostly so that she would not runaway again.  At one point during my stay with her she gave me a giant hug while still in handcuffs.  She told me thank you for caring about her and being there with her at the hospital.  
     A few months later I was invited by a student to an art gallery in Boise.  One of the students drew the moment very well and entered it into an art show where she received 2nd place for it.  I am not sure I have ever felt so honored in my life.  
     You can see the drawing in person at the Art Source Gallery in Boise through the end of February, 2016.  For now here is a photo of the drawing which as you can see is incredible.
