In January of 2014 our department lost one of its own to an extremely sudden illness. As you can imagine it shook our department, knowing that one day you are side by side with a fellow officer and the next day he is gone.
As soon as TMPA got the word Leighton Guarnere was quick to respond with the offers of help for the department and the deceased officers family. We also had offers from several other departments to come in and assist with patrol duties during services. It’s a good feeling to know you have all of these good people ready to help you out when you’re down.
Thanks for everything.
