    Officer Romrell was 31, he had been with South Salt Lake for only 11 months. Prior to law enforcement he was a US Marine with multiple tours. He leaves behind a wife and 4 month old child.

    Dang, just read the article about the situation. So sad. Any call or incident could be a life-threatening situation. Officer Romero served multiple tours as a marine, but a burglary call in South Salt Lake is where his life ended. The article says this is the first Line of duty death is South Salt Lake.

    t makes me appreciate what LEO’s do for us everyday.
    I saw a door that said exit only. So I entered through it and went up to the guy working there and said "I have good news. You have severely underestimated that door over there. By like a hundred percent." Demetri Marti

    One of my former recruits is also in the national guard and had deployed multiple times.

    He was curious about the risks in both jobs so he did the math. He found he’s slightly more at risk of being killed as a law enforcement officer than he was on any combat tour.

    The officer killed last night had a wife and 4 month old son. Hoping this isn't an insensitive comment, but do the spouses get taken care of financially? I sure hope they get great life insurance and a pension?

    Not really. The legislature changed the law so a survivor can get the pension, but he had 11 months on so there’s little to be had.

    Unless you pay for extra life insurance most cities give $50,000 tops.

    There is a charity foundation in Utah who will give his wife a check for $25,000 this week.

    Utah is not the greatest at taking care of their fallen

    Provo City police Officer shot and killed yesterday.

    There have now been 6 officers killed on January 5th in Utah. Deadliest single day in the state.

    Both Josie Greathouse Fox and Jared Francom we’re killed on the 5th (Josie was the first line of duty death funeral I attended 8 years ago. Sadly I’ve been to almost 10 since)

    Every time I hear this kind of news, it's a blow.

    Public servants, overwhelmingly good people, put in crazy amounts of stressful situations... then something like this.

    Pretty sure I speak for everyone on this board when I say we feel for you & the rest of the law enforcement community.

    You do for me, Ma’ake. Be safe, Diehard.

There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”
