I am a Police Officer for Fort Worth Police Department. Prior to Fort Worth I worked in a civilian capacity as a Police Records Clerk for Euless Police Department. Euless was my first police family and I still have several friends near and dear to my heart who are true dedicated servants. On March 1st 2016, Officer David Hofer was killed in the line of duty. Though I did not know David, I knew several men and women who worked with him. David was the officer that everyone strives to be and he had a heart of gold. His loss hit close to home for myself and several other local agencies. On March 15th 2016 we nearly lost a Fort Worth Police Officer. Matthew Pearce was shot in the line of duty. Though he remains recovering in the hospital he is continuing his fight. It is my honor to run in memory of Officer David Hofer and also run on behalf of my fellow brother still recovering, Officer Matthew Pearce.
