RCSO Deputy Joey Vann: A listener writes to tell of a caring officer with the Rutherford County Sheriffs Office. Her heating and cooling system was out and the temperature in her home was at a dangerous level. The woman was in her 80s and had just returned from volunteering at the hospital. She called a repair service, but it was late in the day and they were not able to come until the next day. Her "out of state" son was concerned and called the sheriffs department. Deputy Joey Vann arrived and said the weather made it unsafe to spend the night in the home. He called some friends and quickly had a place to spend the night. Deputy Vann waited until they arrived to pickup the elderly woman.
