As May 11, 2015, approaches we honor all of our fallen police officers and their families. Still with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes, i remember my brother, Russell C. Scott killed in 1958. As the years go by, all fallen officers families will never forget their loved ones.

But, lets take the time to honor all of the members of the WFPD and all of the police office throughout the USA. Thank you for the service that you have given to each and everyone of us.
