In Memory of Police Officer Alex Arango
“Alex was the type of guy who would be a leader. He never wanted to promote. In 27 years, you’d think that you’d have someone that would want to promote to sergeant or a lieutenant, possibly even chief. However, Alex never wanted to promote because he liked serving the community, and he liked being involved in the community, and he liked mentoring other officers.”
