Description

(Part 2) The murder of Officer Chris Kilcullen, in broad daylight, devastated the community he served. Our own Detective Dan was the first to arrive on scene and tend to him, while the armed suspect fled, leading multiple law enforcement agencies in a treacherous, high-speed chase up a remote logging road. Where the road dead-ends, a tense standoff commences and our own Detective Dave steps in as the crisis negotiator. In this two-part episode, Detective Dan reflects on the worst day of his law enforcement career alongside Chris’ widow, Kristie, and Chris' former lieutenant, and partner, who remember the kind of man and police officer he was.

God bless you folks. I can't even imagine. Thank you to all the noble officers out there who come running when my wife and daughter hear a noise at night and think someone is trying to get inside our house. You all are truly white hats. On the worst day of my life, you risk your lives to protect us. Thank you.
