Officer Cooper rode with me when he was field training. He was a dedicated young officer who was well versed in his law enforcement duties. He was a stickler for wearing his seat belt at a time when a lot of us didn't. Goes to show you can get injured or killed, even if you are following all safety procedures. Rest in peace, my brother. You are remembered.
