    God Bless leo Bruguier and his family. I spent several months in that area and it can be so dangerous for many reasons, it is easy to get complacent while responding to a call or even just driving as the area is so beautiful and the animals are always present. Take care out there guys and girls, please!

    Rest in Peace Off. Bruguier. Thank you for your dedicated service. My thoughts and prayers to your family, friends and fellow officers. docthe cop is right in recognizing that the officers on reservations face a variety of isues that most other officers are lucky to avoid. Service on the reservations requires a very special person to be able to successfully earn respect while respecting the rights of those they serve. May your spirit be free Off. Bruguier as you move on to your next calling.
