“With the senseless killings of many officers across our nation, Sergeant Wright felt a calling to find a way to honor those officers who paid the ultimate sacrifice through their service in 2018. This led him to start a charity, Walk of Reflection. Sergeant Wright is not only walking to remember those lost, but to raise money for Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) and Alliance for Children, Tarrant County,” the North Richland Hills Police Department said in a news release.
With the support of the North Richland Hills Police Department, Texas DPS and many others along the way, Sgt. Wright said he is eager to share his journey.
