I am so sorry for the loss of Officer Tedder. I too, work in corrections. It is my honor that I am representing my agency this year at the Law Enforcement Memorial as one of the name readers for those fallen Law Enforcement brothers in arms from this past year. I wanted to take the time to reach out to those that I am recognizing on this somber occasion. Again, I am sorry for your loss, to the family, the community, and your department.
