Dear Officer Polmanteer,
Over 38 years ago the Phoenix Police Department mourned your loss and you are not forgotten. Today your daughter, who followed in your footsteps, was promoted to Assistant Chief for the Phoenix Police Department. We are all so very proud of her.

I know you have been watching over her. You must be smiling.
