Sergeant Covert,

None of our current Officers, including myself, worked for the Tolleson Police Department at the time you paid the ultimate sacrifice. I want you to know, 30 years later, you have not been forgotten.

We are still here fighting the battle on your behalf and your sacrifice was not in vain.

With Pride, we will honor your memory this month and you will never be forgotten.

Rest in Peace

Chief Wayne R. Booher
