I recall being in LASO academy class 241 when this occurred. Our DI (I ll
Leave out out of respect) wax a peer of Dep Miller when they worked in narco together, He was choked up in class that Monday, Only time I saw him ever let down, That is when I truly learned about the family I was joining. Reality hit me , To this day I think about chasing dope, how are tactics have changed etc,

Anytime we change laws to minimize dope charges… I think of all the good men and women we lost because they were holding up the law . It is hard for me to grasp respecting those who have given their lives for doing a job many would not do

I’ll ride this year in police unity tour ffir my DI and memory of his peer .

Go 241 I am retired two weeks but we still are on watch!
