I worked that day 5/22/25 when Sheriff’s Deputy Caleb Conley was killed in the line of duty, I put him 10-8 (on duty) , because he was suppose to be off that day, but he came to work to do FOT( federal OT). The words I will leave for Caleb’s fellow LEO family, and his family Rachel and the children and his parents. Caleb was a dedicated officer, and I’ll never forget you the drive you had being a deputy was Awesome, and I thank you for giving me the opportunity to work along beside you. RIP #240, even in death your light still shines.
