PHOENIX – Medical issues had forced Linda Tims to temporarily move out of her home, and while she was gone the house was burglarized several times. But a call to police brought more than just a law enforcement response: It brought Officer Glenn Branham, who decided to use his background in construction to help revitalize Tims’ home, which was in disrepair. Branham used his connections to rally the community and together they completely remodeled Tims’ home.
