    First and foremost my thoughts and prayers go out to this brave officer and her family. Second, I am pleased that one suspect is in custody and hopeful that a second will be soon. Thirda, my concerns then go to the law enforcement community as a whole based on the now emerging trend of ambushing LEOs. We must be ever vigiliant in our pursuit of truth and justice while protecting ourselves and our blue family as well as our families. Be safe out there!

    Ambushes are happening way too often anymore. I can see the day coming where all calls are 2 unit responses, simply for safety's sake.
