Officer Dryer, may you rest in peace. May the Lord watch over and comfort your family and your fellow officers.

Why is it the routine calls that become the most dangerous, especially in this holiday season?

As my father's birthplace I find a special kinship with "Little" Washington" Pennsylvania and as a retired NYPD Detective that kinship grows stronger. My sincerest sympathies for the loss of Officer Dryer to your department as well as to his family. No measure of expression can convey the grief of the Nation when a "defender" is down in the line-of-duty. Rest in Peace officer Dryer and in my prayers I will remember him and his family, including his brother and sister officers who grief must be assuaged so they can continue to defend us against all our enemies.
