Hero from the Boulder Police Department

May 15th, 2012

5-15-12In 1994, Boulder, Colorado Police Officer Beth Haynes made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. She was first to respond to a domestic disturbance at an apartment complex. A bystander wouldn’t heed her commands to leave the area so she took the initiative to protect him. It was then the assailant took her life. She epitomizes the true Hero we see every day when Police and Firefighters respond to calls that can put them in harm’s way.
Officer Haynes must have been a very popular person. During my all day honor ride in Boulder today, it was as if I was a local celebrity. Horns blew, well wishes were offered, honks and waves were commonplace. It was a true Hero’s tribute for Officer Beth Haynes.
