Reflections for Patrolman Jerry L. Hartless

Jerry and I went to the academy together and were close friends as young patrol officers working Southeast division. 14 years have past and I still think of our good times together. Jerry was an ex-marine and very physically fit. He was on top of his game. His memory should serve as a reminder to all of us that no matter how prepared you are things can and will go wrong. Work smart, work safe and never assume...

I'm a former NYPD officer that just joined the SDPD 7 months ago. I'll be graduating my second police academy next week and walking some "new" beats. Jerry's story is often told at the academy and he is still thought of as one of San Diego's best and brightest. He is not forgotten.
