Kaila Marie strived to be one of the best police officers in her department and she touched the hearts of many people. She had a tender heart for helping people and she loved her fellow officers. Kaila Marie served her community with love and she sacrificed her life to help keep her community safe. She is missed and she will not be forgotten.

The tragic loss of Sergeant Kaila Sullivan one year ago illustrates that there is NO "routine" call for our Police Officers. A bright light in the City was extinguished too soon, a year, ago. Kaila served the City with distinction and always placed the interest of the residents first. We have lost Kaila's devotion to duty.

However, we know that her fellow Officers will honor Kaila by emulating her dedication to service. We want the Officers to know that we appreciate the daily risks that they take in performing their duties. We will never take them for granted.
