"The measure of a man is not what he gained, but was he gave."
So well put at Kevin's memorial service.
My heart goes out to Officer Tonn's family and the close family at Galt PD. May you keep your memories of Kevin close to your heart. I know how difficult this time is for a smaller agency and how close you are at Galt PD. So many people are keeping you in their prayers.
Rest In Peace Officer Tonn.

Our thoughts, prayers and sympathies will continue as the public he served so well pays their last respect to Galt PD K-9 officer Tonn when he's laid to rest later this morning. From the words engraved on the National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC: "It's not how these officer died that makes them heroes... it's how they lived." RIP sir.

For Police Officer Kevin A. Tonn:

The call to a burglary scene is common among patrol officers and each call presents danger - particularly the risk of the arriving officer being slain. Often the officer arriving perceives a reduced threat and it is at that moment that the worst can happen. We regret that Kevin would be the next officer to die at the hands of a thief, a scoundrel and a coward who always strikes by surprise and then takes his own life rather than face what follows.
We pray for Kevin's family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the days ahead.
We are proud to render a final salute to Officer Kevin Tonn, a soldier-of-the-law.

Rest in peace brother Tonn, we have the watch now. Thank you for your service to this great nation and to your community. God bless the family, friends, and co-workers of Officer Tonn during this time of tragic loss. If the guy was going to commit suicide, why not just do it or better yet, surrender and take his sentence and not take an innocent life. That makes the loss even harder knowing the circumstances of this hero's senseless death. Hey, let's all be careful out there.

Deputy Sheriff Donnie Meaders
