An Officer I didn't meet in person, but one who's legacy lives in the hearts of the Officers who worked with him during his watch, and of course the family he left behind.

The stories I was told about the type of man he was, his character, and his dedication. I can only hope to leave such a legacy when my watch is over.

Rest in peace Officer Prieto!
