My thoughts and prayers are with Deputy Netherland and his family. I will have the Honor to ride with the Police Unity Tour from New Jersey to Washington DC in May. In a show of support and remembrance for Deputy Netherland, I shall be wearing a Law enforcement Memorial bracelet inscribed with his name and hope to turn it over to the family during police week. Please remember "It is not how these officers died that made them heros it is how they lived". God Bless Deputy Netherland and all that knew him. Be safe.
