I'm currently in the Los Angeles County Sheriffs department academy and just wanted to send prayers to the family of this inspiring fallen officer. As a female coming into law enforcement I know that this is a tough career, and I hope that I can be just as brave as officer Susan Farrell. Respectfully, Recruit Ketterling
