Chris, you were an amazing Detective. You are missed by everyone including me. You helped me get through the Reserves. You talked to me a lot about becoming a Reserve. You helped me to get more confident within myself. You made me see that becoming a Reserve was important and it was about helping the community. I will never forget you Chris. I only wish you could have seen me Graduate through the Academy. You missed it by 4 months. Thank you. RIP.
