It would be helpful to know what homework you did so others are not spending their time looking in the same places only to also find nothing.

Dom, couldn't find much on him.  Family was from Minnesota but he was born and lived his whole life in Washington state, died out there in 2003.

You're welcome.  I've searched pretty thoroughly but couldn't come up with anything else.  I'm kind of surprised I couldn't find more.  After all, he was an officer.  Maybe someone else will be able to come up with something.  Anyway, nice tags and I.D.
