We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Patrolman JJ Arnold. Ptl. Arnold began his career with the Moraine Police Department in 1964. Ptl. Arnold spent the majority of his career on the midnight shift but also contributed to the police department as a firearms and use of force instructor. He was placed in an undercover assignment with the Combined Agencies for Narcotic Enforcement Task Force (C.A.N.E.) where he focused his effort on building cases against high-level drug traffickers.

Ptl. Arnold enjoyed music and was a drummer for the police band, Night Blaze. His love of music continued after his retirement in 1997, and he went on to travel the county with a bluegrass band.

Ptl. Arnold grew up in Moraine and invested his life to service. He was referred to as a "Cops Cop" by his coworkers and close friends. He will be greatly missed.

Rest easy brother, we have the watch from here.
