We apologize for the brief nature of today’s tribute to the heroic officers who were taken from us this week. Unfortunately, someone hacked into our site during our switch of servers and webhosts and managed to do quite a bit of damage, as you may have noticed. Some of that destruction included our Friday’s Heroes column. For that I deeply apologize to the families of the fallen officers. We here at The Graveyard Shift are doing everything we can to correct the errors and to preserve the memory of the fine officers who gave their lives while keeping us safe.
