Patrolman Eye, , it has been 72 years since you were taken from us. I was just in Calais at the border crossing to New Brunswick last week. A great place to see where the sun rises first each day in the United States.

Northern New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices you, your family, and many others have made for us. Thank you for your British military and law enforcement service.
