I grew up in the city of Huntington Park for most of my life. I am currently in the Sheriffs academy class 413, and a Police Officer recruit for the city of Huntington Park. Before reading what happened to Officer Keller I never knew the full story. After reading his story, and all the comments written underneath I can say I am truly moved. All the wonderful and inspirational comments that keep his memory alive. I share something in common with Officer Keller, our age that is why i feel drawn to his story. I would like all of those who come across my message to know his memory will live on, and we will never forget those who came before us.

Thank You,
