Brother, my most sincere thanks & gratitude for your service and sacrifice. Many years have passed & our department has grown in many ways. When I 1st started working for the S.O. I was assigned to work in central records & identification. Some tours of duty were long & tedious - especially during dog watch, but I learned so much. I was asked if I wanted to work extraditions on my relief days. That really taught me how to search, secure & restrain detained individuals. Rest assured Brother during my law enforcement career I also did my best to serve with character & integrity. I supported my Brothers by being an example as others had been exemplary with me. We maintain your photo, name & EOW within the halls of the Detention Center. We remember you & other fallen brothers annually during Fallen Officers Memorial Day.
God Bless Your Memory & the Memory of all those that followed.
