Kenton Britt and I attended the same Accident Investigation course in 1984 when I was assigned to Hwy Unit #2 in Brooklyn. He was one of the nicest guys you could ever meet and always greeted you with a smile. I too, like Lt. Yee, thought of Dwight when I heard of the passing of Hwy unit #3 P.O. AnastasiosTsakos after he was hit by a drunk driver while handling a vehicle accident with a fatality. My thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Tsakos' family and the members of Highway Patrol Unit #3. Kenton and Anastasios, may you both rest in peace.

Today we loss another Highway #3 officer and it made me think of you Kenny...may you Rest in Forever Peace my friend...(thanks for showing me how to down shift while chasing a speed)....

and may Officer Anastasios Tsakos RIP....

It is with profound sadness that I announce the passing away of a valued member of Highway Patrol Unit #3. Police Officer Anastasios Tsakos (formerly of the 83 Precinct) was killed in the line of duty on the Long Island Expressway this morning. He was struck by a Hit and Run driver...who has been apprehended. Anastasios, a husband and father of 2 young children will be sorely missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family. May he Rest In Eternal Peace.

34 years ago on this date Kenton E. Britt was tragically taken away from his mother, sisters, uncle, cousins, friends and his LEO family with the Highway Patrol Unit 3. Kenton was a man who bore a sincere smile on his face for all to see, and he equally had a true loving smile on his heart. Officer Kenton E. Britt will never ever be forgotten.

I last posted on August 14, 2019 in which I talked about how callous and intolerant people are to a large extent in our society. I was truly sad about the path I believe we as human beings were taking as we as a society was being exploited in the name of greed and power. We as a nation was being divided in ways that served to conquer and divide by ethnic, religious, economic and social means. We were being feed a daily diet of negative news in which it was hard to know what was truth and what was not. Now, today we are faced with a deadly threat of a virus that could do enormous harm to mankind on planet earth. The Coronavirus aka Corona19 is playing havoc on mankind, and in many ways causing world government to collective come together and collaborate as one or face the consequences. *REMEMBER UNITED WE STAND AND DIVIDED WE FALL" should be the New World motto. Anyway, I am here to help my fellow Human Being as always since I was just a little kid. I have not changed in that respect, and in fact added additional loving and caring people to the table of Love, Care and Respect. Police Officer Kenton E. Britt, you will never ever be forgotten.

I just got off the phone from speaking with my dad (Your Uncle David), and we were talking about "Life". God blessed me with a little knowledge about what life is. The world we live in today is growing more intolerant, more callous and less patient with each other. Life is being lived at a fast paste with very little time (if any at all) to properly acknowledge our Lord.

Officer Kenton E. Britt you will never ever be forgotten.

I was off duty EMS that night heading in for tour one on the GCP from Hollis to Elmhurst, to make my long nightmare short, I found a vehicle rolling away from Kent unresponsive at the guard rail, I barely knew him from the street, but that was the hardest night even after 25+ years OTJ.
I often wish I knew him better, previously it was just a wave, or "hey the coffee is good" and that was important at 3am. Heck the other thing, I knew the Sutch family from Levittown, Kevin Sutch was the EMS Comm Captain and his bro was down on the GCP. I "heard" also I knew the guy that hit them from Rikers & Hospital Security.I rode in with Booth Medics to stabilize the Late neck. I never did make it to work, it was too close to home!. I hope only the best for NYPD Highway 3, Retired from MN!!

Kent, Rest in Peace,
At the time of this tragic accident I was assigned to the NYC Mayoral Security Detail, and vividly recall this incident. Kent and my son were assigned to the same class while attending the NYPD Academy (E. 20th St.) as recruits, and shared their lunch period together. You will always be remembered.

For some reason, I cannot explain, I had thoughts of you today 05/25/2018. You were my patrol partner for many tours of duty in the 108 Pct in the 1980's. We both enjoyed the job and backed each other up when it counted. You were a great cop, and I felt bad when you left the pct for Highway. However, I knew that Highway was what you wanted. I was shocked and saddened when news came out of your death doing the job you loved to do. Heaven is for hero's Kenny. Rest in Eternal Peace!

Today I was talking with your Uncle David about Officer Schrampf who was also killed in the line of duties in the 60's.

We both often times think about you Kenton and we also still say a prayer for you. May your soul rest in Heaven for you were a truly good person and a caring and frolic individual.
