To police officer John Herring family please accept my deepest condolences. I did not know John but I did work with his dad. My son Kevin knew John well and spoke highly of him. John I'm sure made his father proud. May God continue hold him in his embrace and give him love and eternal peace. Thank you John for your ultimate sacrifice and making our community a safer place for all of us.
