I worked Bell PD when John was killed, and we were called in to assist with the crime scene. I recall transporting the hood of a vehicle to the LASD crime lab, where it was believed one of the suspects prints may have been left. I read the reflections and was glad to see John has not been forgotten.

Will be riding for you in the 2018 Police Unity Tour, John “Hogie” Hoglund.
