Lt Harris was a role model, friend, trainer, advisor to me and many, many of my fellow officers as we struggled to adapt to our roles as police officers on Company “C” right out of the training academy. Always, always there to offer encouragement, and a hearty handshake or pat on the back when we most needed it. No finer man wore the uniform of the department and we were fortunate to begin our careers with him as our cheer leader and “Boss”. To the family I share in your loss but “The Dizz” will forever remain in our memories to cherish those moments in our lives when he was with us. Go with God Sir.
