CHAMBLEE, Ga. — Chamblee police officer Robert Tink whistled when he went to work. He did whatever he was asked to do on his shift, and if told to do something once, the patrol officer figured the job was his for the duration.

"He was extremely motivated and always in a great mood," said Capt. Michael Beller, Tink's field training officer. "He would come in and do all the things the other officers didn't want to do, such as go get prisoner meals, feed prisoners and do transports from other counties. He had a servant's heart."
