IN THE BEGINNING

Benny really is a humble man or maybe just secretive.  I’ve been married to him for almost 20 years and he just told me a story tonight about his very first arrest.  I laughed my arse off…

He was only in the police academy for 30 days or so when he witnessed a purse snatching from an elderly woman.  He immediately chased down the suspect and apprehended him by pressing his finger into the suspects back pretending he had a gun.  The suspect surrendered thinking there was a gun in his back…As a trainee Benny was not yet issued his police service revolver.  Hey if the finger works, try it.

He received the first of many Commendations for his initiative, action and zeal from the police department for that arrest.

That’s just the beginning…

I’ll tell you stories from the early years up to and including each day forward.

As they say, Once a Cop, Always a Cop…but this guy goes above and beyond the call of duty, off-duty or retirement.
