I was only on the job for a little more then 2 yrs, I remember Officer Greer coming into the 6th precinct station house to log in his summons. He worked a HPB car on the LIE. I was always impressed with him and his assignment. It was very tragic and upsetting when I heard of his death, on the "Big Road" that he patrolled.
