I didn’t know you and have never been to the US, but as an ex UK Officer of nearly 24 years service, I see all officers as brothers and sisters in blue. I am sorry to hear of this and the loss that will be felt by your family and your department.

May you rest in peace and know that you did your duty, thank you for your service
