The tragic loss of Galt Officer Kevin Tonn is embraced within the community he so valiantly served..

Although the tragic killing of a law enforcement officer occurs relatively infrequently, each time it does, there is displayed a flay in the American fabric. Each time a warrior hero such as Galt Officer Kevin Tonn is torn from us, we lose not only a fine and talented and brave protector, we lose a chunk of our own sense of security. The shadows are a bit deeper and the days, unlike what the almanac states, seem a bit longer. A K9 dog, Yaro, is suddenly without a master, suddenly without his partner and best friend. We all have lost a friend.

Sacramento County Law Enforcement Senior Chaplain Mindi Russell, after days of sitting with the amazing family of Officer Tonn in both Galt and Roseville, now plans Monday's Funeral services, a task she and her office have too much experience in.
