  • As the wife of an officer, my heart is breaking for this brave, selfless officer’s loved ones. He responded to what he thought was a troubled man who needed his help and was prepared to do just that. Unbelievable what a troubled world we live in. My deepest sympathy is with this officer’s family.

  • Thoughts & prayers sent to the family of Officer Norris at this time of your great loss. May he rest in peace. Praying that the other officer will recover & be back out there serving his community. Such a sad time.
