Sgt. Derri Stormer, supervisor for a patrol squad, is a proud mother of two young girls with a third expected in July.


As is typical for law enforcement officers, she works holidays, weekends and nights, including today.

What are you eluding to

What are you eluding to exactly? The article is about "Mothers Day." I would imagine that's why it was about the mother's work day and involvement with her kids. The father is a police officer as well and may have been the subject had the article been about Fathers Day.

Good story,
