Beautiful words, sir. I did not know Officer Arkell but was so moved during Police Week 2015 to visit the site and see Officer Arkell's name inscribed. Every community has many (most) officers as dedicated and we need to recognize and respect each public servant. My car wears a decal given to me by a friend. This decal is the badge #87 of Officer Arkell. We are reminded every trip in the car how valuable life is and how important our dedicated officers are to daily life.
