In his keynote speech during the 2010 Law Enforcement Memorial Dedication, retired Missouri State Highway Trooper Bill Adams said:
“Not only we do honor them for their supreme sacrifice, but, ladies and gentlemen, they define who we are and what we stand for. That’s the caliber of person that we are recognizing here today. I know within my heart that they are looking down upon us today, this morning, and to each and every one of us they’re saying ‘thank you.’ They’re saying, ‘Thank you for not forgetting us.'”
