DEO’s were the most under appreciated positions in INS. Tommy’s sacrifice shows what a huge part of national safety and security we did. Thank You. And your family for your service.

To the family and friends of Officer Chin and his fellow officers with the Immigration and Naturalization Service, and most especially to Officer Tommy Chin:

Today it has been seven years since your tragic death. Officer Chin, your valor and dedication are not forgotten.

I hope that his family is still embraced by the care and comfort of their law enforcement family, and other police survivors.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the service Officer Chin gave to his community and the citizens of the United States, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on October 17, 1999.
