On Wednesday, Trooper Eric Workman was laid to rest.
As we begin to come to terms with this senseless tragedy, I hope we can all take a moment to remember that police work is truly dangerous.
Every time an officer reports for duty, there is a chance they won't come home again.
In the coming days, as a way to honor Trooper Workman and Cpl. Marshall Bailey, if you see a police officer on patrol, offer them a simple thank you. Their sacrifice is great and we owe them our gratitude.
