We are deeply saddened by this officer's fate. We trust that the Lord will care for his Wife, Children, Family, Friends and Fellow Officers during this time. I hope someone told this officer how much he was appreciated. It's a much different world inside a penal facility. Family, know that thanks will never be enough for serviing his watch and caring enough to help.l

May you rest in peace my friend. Another good officer dead, and all he was trying to do is help someone in need. Maybe this will shed some light on what Correctional Officers do and continue to do. Maybe the laws will change to where we not only get the training needed to become peace officers but also the right to carry the protection needed to protect ourselves and other citizens.
