Constable Quimbly... Thank You for the example you set for the rest of us. On October 9, 2015, there will be a memorial service in Hollywood, California for 8 Los Angeles Police Officers killed in the line of duty. LAPD has lost 207 Officers as of October 2015. To date over 20,000 officers from all ranks,(local, state and federal), and every state and territory have been slain defending our freedom. Your name will be mentioned at the service.. May Your Name Be Eternal
