Officer Arreola,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of El Paso County. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections/Detention Officer. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
