POLICE OFFICER GERARD CARTER
The community center was named after Police Officer Gerard Carter who was killed in the line of duty while apprehending a suspect who was believed to be wanted for murder. He took a bullet through the windshield of his patrol van.
Officer Carter is best remembered for always doing and giving more than what was expected. He was a police officer for five years and chose to become a police officer because he realized that the city needed a cop with heart, with feeling and emotion for the people he served. As he patrolled the streets of Stapleton he knew so well, Officer Carter was able to balance his authority with compassion because he knew the streets, he knew the problems and he was trying to make a difference.
