    I was traveling with the Driver of the Van who received the warning that fateful night and saw the devastating scene. I think about Randy and his family each time I slow down and change lanes to protect and officer from injury during routine stopsI hope his family is doing well at this time.

    I was attending the Police Academy in Salt Lake City when the news of the accident was reported. I remember when we saw his vehicle it was a reminder of the risks involved being a law enforcement Officer. I am no longer working in that occupation, but I am always respectful of those who still put on the badge and put their lives on the line to protect ours.
