On 02/27/18 I was on a traffic stop on US 131 in Kalamazoo County, MI. As I opened my door to re-enter my vehicle I glanced down and saw a rubber wristband on the ground with a blue line on it. I picked it up and it read "Sheriff Deputy Glaze 110." I did some research and learned of Glaze's line of duty death. I have reached out to local law enforcement in the area and will be sending a care package to Dep. Glaze's family. I want them to know his sacrifice will not be forgotten and that that wristband now hangs on my spotlight handle in my car as a sign that Dep. Glaze always has my six. Thank you for watching over me Dep. Glaze.
