Last Goodbyes for One of Portland's FinestStory by Tim King Images by Q Madp
A Portland officer recently killed in a traffic accident, was one of the city's most skilled and devoted death investigators.
(PORTLAND, Ore.) - Adam J Cushman, one of the Portland Police Bureau's finest officers, died recently in a tragic accident. He leaves behind a wealth of family and friends and plenty of grief.
His untimely and unexpected departure from the agency where he was a lead death investigator, will be felt as a sharp loss for some time to come.
Q Madp of IraqWarHeroes.org, attended this service and dispatched these rich photos that say so many things about a Police Criminologist who was constantly setting new boundaries, and attending the latest courses to stay up to speed on the techniques and approaches that best serve those who investigate Portland's toughest crimes.
When considering the loss of this young officer who had so much to offer, Q Madp said, "There are a lot of good cops out there doing their best to make the community a safer place to live, and I appreciate that!"
I don't think anyone would disagree with that.
We are sad at Salem-News.com to report this information about the loss of Portland Police Officer/Criminologist Adam J Cushman.
We do however strongly appreciate the willingness of the family to allow the public to see and hear a few things about this highly educated and acclaimed officer.
Please visit IraqWarHeroes.org to learn more about Q's efforts to honor those who serve and to see his fantastic photo coverage.
