On August 29, 2006 Normandy Police Officer Amanda Cates was slain by her boyfriend Calverton Police Officer Robert Brooks. Since that time he has been fired, tried, convicted, and sentenced to life in prison. As Amanda's mom Carolyn says - no body wins. Everybody loses.
It is the desire of the people who love Amanda - her family, friends, police department, community, and the youth she worked with every day - to have good come from tragedy.
To that end there is The Amanda Cates Memorial Scholarshop Fund.
