Scotty your dad was one of the elite in the Special Thefts days at HPD. It was my honor to work with him and know him as a close friend. May the peace of God that surpasses our understanding surround you and your mom and the rest of your loved ones as you go through this time of mourning. With heartfelt love and concern, Ken McAlpine HPD retired.
