I was so sorry to learn of the passing of Herschel Medlin. He worked with me at the Tolleson Police Department and was one of the best Officers I ever worked with in my 30 years. I knew his wife Jessica and had been in touch with Herschel since he left Tolleson PD in Sept. 2006. The world will be missing a good husband, Officer, and someone I was proud to know and call my friend. Rest in Peace Herschel you will never be forgotten.
