So Sorry for the loss, I pray that GOD will watch over the family and fellow officers that served with this officer. May God give some sense of peace. We all lose when a LEO falls. Take hope in the fact they are now patrolling Heavens Streets. Again my deepest regrets for the loss.

My condolences to the family and friends of Police Officer Nicholas Galinger. Losing a loved one is always difficult. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when you will see your loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth.

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

The men & women of the Abilene Police Department extend their prayers to the family, friends, and coworkers of Police Officer Nicholas Galinger, following his death. His brief service with his agency cannot possibly be the sum of the service and selflessness he administered over the span of his life. We are grateful for his servant heart and committed principles by which he lived.

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 Chattanooga Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!
