Officer Dorris,

I came across your name on the Los Angeles County Memorial Wall at the Biscailuz Center Academy. Your name stood out to me because you passed away close to my 10th birthday. At that time, I had no idea that I wanted to become a Police Officer. I was still young and naive. Now I am in my eighth week at the Los Angeles Sheriff Academy.

Throughout those eight weeks I have learned how amazing this job can be, but I also learned how unforgiving this job can be. I'll admit that there are days that I feel tired, but when I see the names on the Memorial Wall it is a reminder that what I am feeling is nothing compared to what you felt. I know that every Officer/Deputy on that wall would love to be in my position.

As I scroll through your page, I can tell you were a great Officer, husband, and father. Although I never had the pleasure to meet you or work with you, your legacy still lives on.
