What a sad loss of such a fine man. As a former Trooper, I share especially in the death of this nice man. I pray for his family, friends and colleagues.'

The whole State of Maryland should be proud of such a good gentleman. We all share in the grief when a brother or sister officer goes down in the line. We are all family.

I just lost a dear friend of 12 years, LT Glenn Hicks, Avery Co. NC Sheriff's Office, murdered on 20 FEB. I know what you feel.

The Chief now walks a beat in Heaven with St. Michael. The Old Line State lost one of the finest.

God Bless and be safe.
