Prayers and Thoughts are with Jim´s family. We were in the same academy class(34th). Worked together on "D" platoon for several years. And were both brother officers and friends the rest of our time on the department. Jim was the One of the best Cops I ever worked with. Always there,always positive. Set the example for the rest us. Rest In Peace Brother....
