Its been a long time since I heard this name and never forget it Freddie Toto ! I remember as a child being told about him and the circumstances surrounding his last watch. I know at the time, there was another officer standing next to him, not sure if it was my dad, Officer John(Butch) Taurosa #1480, or another officer. Condolence's to all family members
