SPECIAL ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS:

  • Special thanks to my web guru Rafael Reyes who taught me so much while I was developing this site. Without you this site would have never been more then a simple webpage. Thank you for everything you've done to give this site a fresh look!

  • A huge thanks to Jesse Locker for the php scripting and database help. Knowing nothing about the coding involved you tackle my projects with such enthusiasm they'redone before I know it - even better then I'd hoped. Thank you for helping the site continue to grow!

  • Thank you to my son Andrew Cook who also tackled unfamiliar php scripting to help out. You came through with flying colors and I'm proud to use your scripts.

  • Thank you Police Officer Rich Flaherty for all the information and portraits you've sent. The research you do is invaluable. You have filled in so many of the missing pieces.

  • Big thanks to Tictoc and Sno for all their graphics help.

  • Thank you Sergeant Bobby O'Malley for all the information you provided. You knew so much about so many I couldnt write fast enough to keep up!

  • Thank you Lieutenant James for letting me spend the day going through Spring3100 publications. I felt it an honor to be able to look through those old issues.

  • Thank you retired Detective John Reilly and retired Sergeant Mike Bosak for your help in making the information accurate and filling in missing pieces.

  • Thank you to Steve Weiss and the Officer Down website. I was so discouraged with how little information was out there and how many heroes were all but forgotten until I found your website. Thank you for keeping me informed as new heroes are recognized, without your help I'd probably never know.
