Protecting those who protect us

In Memory of K-9 Kye

On August 25, 2014 Belgian German Shepherd, K-9 Kye with the Oklahoma City Police Department was laid to rest with full honors after being killed in the line of duty. During the funeral service Kye’s human partner, Staff Sergeant Ryan Stark, leaned over the 3-year-old dog’s flag-draped casket to give his K-9 protector a final goodbye.  K9 Kye was not wearing a bullet and stab protective vest.​

The Cop and the Motel Kid

My name is Chris Cognac and I am a police officer in Hawthorne, California. I have “almost always” believed in the power of positive thinking, paying it forward and making a positive impact on the world around me.

I have been a police officer for 23 years. I have seen so much violence, so much sorrow on the streets and as a detective working sexual assaults and child abuse that I had built up walls to protect my soul. It became hard to “feel,” hard to be happy when your world is a very dark place. So I created an alternate world for myself through food and writing. To make a long story short, I began the journey of the “Hungry Detective” so I could leave my demons in another place and through food and writing, be happy again.
