Officer Zinck, it has been 68 years since you were taken from us. I grew up in Framingham but was only 8 when you passed. But I remember the friends I made on the FPD talking about. It must have had an impact on my, ended up serving for 34 years in NH. New England law enforcement has continued to thrive, learn and become safer due to the traditions and sacrifices that you and too many others have made for us. Thank you for your service.
