In Memory of All Fallen Officers

To All of the Fallen Officers,

You will be remembered not only because of your bravery in the face of certain death, but your dedication to the community that you fought to make a safe place to live. I salute you and all that you stood for.

I also thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice to ensure my safety in a world that often forgets what a difference a POLICE OFFICER can make.

Thank you,
Officer Powell
