Professional, ethical, hard-working and very proactive. Gabriel didn't wait for crime to occur, he looked to stop it before Victims and their lives were destroyed. The best of what BHPD offers to the Community. Gabe Coyoca was a great Cop...But even a better family man. His two children, 9 & 5 years of age will need some financial assistance for college. Thanks, Patch, for providing the info for the "Family Fund" support.
