When we created this website we as much as possible wanted to avoid using stock photography and instead use photos of actual police officers and departments.  We are very fortunate that our friends in our extended law enforcement family stepped up with many of the pictures you see on the site.  However, a group of these photographs have a story all their own that we wanted to share with you.

A large number of the photographs on this site were taken at the funeral of Chief Michael P. Maloney of the Greenland NH Police Department. On April 12, 2012 Chief Maloney and four Detectives from the NH Attorney Generals drug task force were serving search and arrest warrants, when all four Detectives were shot by a suspect from inside the residence. Two of these officers were critically wounded. After Chief Maloney pulled the critically wounded officers to safety, he was killed while defending the other two wounded officers. The two suspects died in a murder suicide. At the time of his death Chief Maloney was 48 years old and had 26 years of service in law enforcement 12 of those as Chief. He was scheduled to retire in eight days.
