Reflections for Officer Edward Maloney

Officer Maloney was one of five boys to be police officers in San Francisco. One of the boys left SFPD to become Denver PD's first Traffic Cop, my great grandfather. I retired from the Aurora, Colorado PD in 1999. The Thin Blue Line lives on through your sacrifice. To all the men and women on that Thin Blue Line stay safe and keep your head down.

Officer Maloney was my Great Great Uncle. When ever you walk in the the Hall of Justice in San Francisco you see his name on the Wall of Honor and it hits you hard. My grandfather joined the department the same year as his uncle was killed. Thank God he, and all the other members of the family made it through to finish their careers.
I believe that there should be a special honor for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice to keep us all safe, a "Medal of Sacrafice" for police and fire who jump in harm's way for us.

Officer Maloney is my Great Great Uncle. I have a photo of Edward and all of his brothers in uniform on the S.F.P.D. around 1910. As far as I know I was the only member to join the police department in 1985 in Aurora, Colorado. I retired in 2001. From all accounts Edward was a dedicated police officer who gave is life in the service of his community San Francisco.

I am Officer Maloney's only surviving granddaughter. I know very little about him other than what I have read in historical accounts. I would like information on his grave site.
I wish he could know that his infant son grew up to be a very fine man and a wonderful father.
