The History and Stories of the Abilene, TX Police Department Motorcycle Unit

Traffic Unit

I first met Motor Officers Mike Ricker and Rodney Holder in May of 1958 at the Law Enforcement Memorial at Hardin Simmons University. Since that time Mike has become a great friend and Rodney has gone to be with The Lord. Rodney died in a traffic accident in the 1300 block of Sayles on Thursday, April 29, 2010.
