McLaughlin noted that Loren – also a concert pianist and multilinguist – was voted Employee of the Year by the department on two separate occasions and will be missed. “I got lucky and found a job that I cared about very much,” said Loren. “It’s about the officers – keeping them safe so they can go out and keep the citizens safe.” — Photo by Laura Austin
