Rest in Peace Captain Mike Gorhum. You truly are one of the guys, I’ve most respected in my Law Enforcement Career, no task too big, no goal too loafty. Never met a stranger, never backed down, always had your partners back or when you were in charge, your Officer’s back. Whatever it was, I wish one of us could have reached you, could have told you, “regardless, it will be OK”. Love you Mike. This is a hard day. God bless you, and your Family and the Department.
