YOUR MEMORY, SACRIFICE, STORY, BADGE, AND PHOTOS WILL LIVE ON IN OUR MUSEUM AS A PART OF THE RICH HISTORY OF POLICING THIS LAND. MAY YOU REST IN PEACE.

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization.
As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
I have given my life so that others may live in peace.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.
You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.
