When the men and women of APD report to duty each day, they never know what dangers they may face in their job to protect us. Last week, in the middle of the nite, Senior Patrol Officer Gail Thomas, was struck by an alleged drunk driver on the downtown connector.
Our own Zone 6 Sergeant Debbie Jo was the color guard member who solemnly and reverently received the American flag at the airport.
A memorial fund has been set up at any Bank of America branch in the name of Senior Police Officer Gail Thomas’ Daughter’s Trust for contributions, or our own Zone 6 Officer Pat Apoian’s Humble Heroes will have a fundraiser at Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q on DeKalb Avenue on Wednesday 2/1/2012 from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
