Officer Koontz is one of the finest officers at the Post Falls Police Department. He goes above and beyond his duties. He helped me in my time of need and checked up on me later the evening of my accident and later on in that week. If it wasn't for a quick response from him, it would have been worse for myself and my children. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Officer Koontz.Melissa M. ,
