Writing to the Chief About an Officer
With apologies in advance to Mike, I would like to ask a question inspired by Indy's thread on thanking an officer.
There is an officer who has been exceptionally helpful to me on an ongoing basis. I would like the chief to know about this, and I have considered writing a letter. However, since I will have a continuing association with this officer AND because she is in a position to make decisions which affect me, I would prefer that she not know about my letter. At best it might seem like I'm sucking up and at worst like I'm trying to influence her future decisions.
Would it be outrageously unusual to send the chief a letter but ask that it not be shared with the officer?
