I just wanted to thank all of the members involved with public safety for what they do, whether police, firefighters, or EMS and may god bless them.
Last Wednesday k-9 officer Derek Kotecki was shot three times and killed by a heroin addict who was wanted for attempted homicide. Hi partner Odin refused to leave his side. I had the honor of knowing officer Kotecki, who left behind a wife and two children, he was always willing to help with a smile on his face.
The amount of support for not only the family but the community has been tremendous.
Again thank you all for everything you do.
Rest in peace Derek.
