I’ll be thinking of Agent Torres as Chapter VIII of the Police Unity Tour rides out of Portsmouth, VA to Washington DC. Agent Torres was my silent partner at the academy and I still carry my card as I approach my 10 year anniversary this summer! I hope to do his memory proud on this week. Honor First!
