 Police Week: Each of the fallen has a story to tell
 Don't assume safety in numbers

Dear PoliceOne Member,

We did it again. Back in March, we asked law enforcers to submit comments and mail letters to the Kansas Parole Board in an effort to keep a convicted cop killer behind bars. All in, some 1,000+ letters were sent, among them more than 250 comments from P1 members. Late Tuesday, we received word that because of this volume of support for the family of Kansas Highway Patrol Trooper Conroy O'Brien, the board ruled that Jimmy K. Nelms shall remain in prison for at least another 10 years (the maximum that could be ruled, and double the norm).

Our sincere thanks go out to every LEO who answered the call and helped us keep this killer where he belongs.
