It is with deepest sympathies for the family of Corrections Officer Scott Collora. I actually knew Scott from his time with the Tomball Police Department in the late 90's and when I was an intern with the PD, Scott was my trainer/instructor and one of the main reasons that I chose my career path within Law Enforcement. I have many fond memories of riding in the patrol car with Scott and working with him at the High School in the program that he started there for at-risk juveniles. Scott and I stayed in touch for many years afterwards, but like a lot of adult friendships, once he moved from the Tomball area, we lost contact. Please contact me if there is anything that I can do for the Scott's family and Department during this sad time.
