Mourning Bands

The line we follow is a thin one. It's surrounded by darkness, separating good and evil, right and wrong.  It's illuminated by all of our fallen officers who maintained their integrity in the face of diversity, had courage to act when others crumbled, kept going when everyone else quit, trusted in their fellow officers to do the same, and had faith in something greater than themselves.  The line runs straight and doesn't stop until end of watch.

On March 5, 2014, the line stopped for Corrections Deputy / FTO Darrel Connor. Today we wear this line across our badges in mourning of our fallen deputy.  His story began with our agency over fifteen years ago, touching many lives along the way.  Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers as they find closure to move forward.
