Artists First artist Danny Speck wanted to honor the Maplewood Police Department, so he painted a picture of a Maplewood police car.
Maplewood Police Corporal Steve Jamerson liked it so much he surprised Speck and bought it. This is a correction. Previously it was said that the department bought the painting.
