  1. What a great guy! It seems like yesterday that Dave was the new guy on the block. I remember seeing David out there in the early mornings doing his beat with a bike. I was starting a business then and we’d meet in the morning many times. He always had a nice encouraging word for me. It is great to see that he still fits into his uniform from 25 years ago too! How many people can stay in shape like that? A real gentleman. Best of luck!

  2. Sergeant David you once responded to an accident I was involved in and you were truly professional and really comforted everyone at the scene. Thanks again for your help and good luck!!

  3. Wow. Time flies. It wasnt so long ago he was writing his weekly columns in The Lakewood Weekly. He once pulled me over for driving while on a cell phone. It was the only time in my life I got a ticket & I felt the officer felt bad giving it. Best of Luck !!!
