Frank worked for me on several shifts when I was a watch commander. He was always one of the hardest workers on the shift and loved working traffic. Prior to coming to our agency he had also worked for LAPD and Nye County SO (Nevada). I remember one night he was arresting a man at his home on an assault and his dog attacked Frank. Frank fought the dog off, arrested its owner and didn't get stitched up until he had dropped his prisoner off at booking. Frank was a great cop and will always be sorely missed all who knew him. He also loved motorcycles and liked being a motor officer, having come by and allowing my young son to sit on his bike--thanks Frank for always being there...
