I was Scott Johnson's first FTO when he became a reserve Police Officer for the Ashland, Oregon Police Department. This sad day has me reflecting on the friends that have gone before me,, and I wanted his family to know that my daughter Kiley did a memorial page for Scott that was part of the National Law Enforcement Memorial Bike Ride to Washington DC this year. Although I now wish that I had stayed in better touch with Scott, his memory will never be forgotten as long as we remember.
