Our thoughts and prayers go out to these Officers, Their families and all the Officers and families of the Topeka Police Department. May God's Mercy and Grace comfort you in these troubled times of grief and disbelief. In my 25 years our Agency (Sedgwick County, Kansas Sheriff's Office) has lost (5) in the line of duty. It never gets easier and our hearts go out to all of you.
