Oct. 13, 2020 – “I think that’s why I’m so passionate about it because I was that person,” says Hamilton. Every year Hamilton posts on social media about his inspiring recovery. This time his message reached the right person. Phoenix police arranged for Hamilton to meet Carro.
“That was pretty heartfelt when I first read that,” says Carro. “You just felt the soul; the gentleman’s soul was just so genuine.”
Carro has been with Phoenix police for 13 years. He does not remember Josh and never expected such an interaction to lead to a show of gratitude.
“I just treat everybody fairly, and with respect, the same way I’d want to be treated or I’d want my family to be treated,” says Carro.
Early next year, Hamilton will celebrate five years of sobriety. He wants every officer to know they make a huge impact every day, even if they don’t know it.
“Especially now,” says Hamilton. “We need you. We need you, and it’s super important for them to know that.”
