While on patrol in the Fourth District, PO Vickie Przybylski responded to a call for a stolen bicycle. Upon arrival, she learned that the bike belonged to a five year old child, who had just received it the week before. Przybylski interviewed the family and then took action. She got on her phone, called a local Walmart store, and explained the situation. A short time later, Walmart made the decision to donate a brand new bike to the young child, made happy once again!
During her time with the Cleveland Division of Police, P.O. Przybylski has always been there to help others and has a great compassion for children. She has been known to give out stickers and stuffed animals to kids as well as reach out to social service organizations when she comes across families in need. Over the years she has organized fundraisers for injured officers and cooked full Thanksgiving dinners for her shift, and she spends her free time with her family in addition to running a Girl Scout troop and partaking in activities with her church. For her dedication to the community and especially our children, the Cleveland Police Foundation is honored to recognize P.O. Vickie Przybylski as its Police Officer of the Month for November 2017.
