I never met Syren, but this beautiful tribute that was written by the Alton Cheif of Police nearly brought a tear to my eye. The bond between Officer Chris Johnson and his partner Syren was obviously a very special one. She served the police department for five years and will be remembered for her gentle demeanor especially with children at community events.

Our thoughts are with the Alton community and Police Department during this difficult time. R.I.P Syren.
