Sergeant Mayo,

Many generations of Police Officers have come and gone from our agency since your passing but your memory still lives on. Either through our memorial hallway or our FTO program, new Officers are being taught about who you were and the appreciation our community had for you. I've reached out to several people who worked with you then and I've heard about the fond memories they have of you. The stories that have been newly captured over the past several years paint a clear picture of the kind of man that you were.

I feel privileged to be a part of this agency knowing that many of the examples that have been set are your own. You were a valuable mentor to those who knew you.

We will do our best to keep your memory, and the memory of our other fallen brothers, fresh in the minds of those who wore, wear and will wear this patch.

Thank you
