Rest in Peace Police Officer Arthur Ford. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice Protecting the steel roadways of America. The job has not changed much over the years just the technology. We still have to check those yards for burglars and thieves but now the transients are not just hobos but enemy combatants from foreign enemies.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers.
