Most Recent Reflection

Railroad Police agencies seem to be slowly becoming a thing of the past, which is a travesty. For all of those who still serve to protect one of the main things that made America what it is today, and for all who preceded them, we, as a nation, owe our thanks.

Every police job has it's risks but that special risk to Railroad Police is always there, and that was your fate. My Dad was with the New York Central Police for 5 years and had his share of near misses so I appreciate the dangers. You gave 8 years of your life protecting our railways and prior to that, you risked your life protecting our nation. Thank you, hero.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.
