A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Bakersfield Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

Condolences to Officer Nelson's next-of-kin and loved ones, and to the other members of Bakersfield PD. May Bakersfield PD and its Law Enforcement Agency partners find the vehicle and operator involved ASAP to bring the "client" before the Courts for suitable justice to be seen to be done. So unfortunate that we have lost yet another brother to an "routine" (unknown risk) task.
