As a former Detroit Police Officer I am sad to hear of another officer that left the department and was killed in the line of duty with another department. Im so very sad to hear of the officers death. The city of Denver has lost a good person. I know that one day I will see you in heaven and we can walk a beat together.

Officer Hollis,

I had the ultimate privilege to escort the U.S. Honor Flag from the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport to the Texas/Oklahoma border this afternoon. As we speak it is on the way to you, being carried from officer to officer and from state to state. I want to thank you for your sacrifice and I pray for you, your family, your friends and your fellow officers with Denver Police Department. I consider my small part in this mission a great honor and holding that flag today makes one realize just how many great people have paid the ultimate price for our country. Thank you. You will not be forgotten.

Celena you are sorely missed. The Denver Police Department will honor your memory and celebrate your life on Saturday. Your fellow officers from not only Denver, but around the world will think of you everyday for the rest of their lives. You have touched many lives in such a positive way. I pray for you, your beautiful daughter, and your family & friends during this very difficult time. God Bless, Mike Calo

Celena - I'll never forget the young woman with the big smile that walked into my office seeking a security officer job in early 2000. Although I did not hire you for the security officer position because I did not feel that suited your skills, we found you another position that you performed superbly at. Little did I know then that you had a real interest and desire to be involved in law enforcement. I along with so many that were touched by you are saddened by your passing, but know that you are now in a better place with your heavenly father. My condolences to your young daughter and your family, may they draw strength and comfort from God and knowing that they will see you again one day. You'll never be forgotten!!
