We collected ourselves and said goodbye to Louisiana State Police Troop I spokesman Sergeant Brooks David. With the shiny new title comes a new assignment back on patrol to lead a team of fellow Troopers. It's been about four years since David took over the Public Affairs position for Troop I.

As a group of stations and digital platforms, Townsquare Media has been in constant contact with Trooper David. We came together to shower him with appreciation on his last regular segment on Acadiana's Morning News.

One of my fondest memories of his 'Ask The Trooper' segments each week is when he shared the message that the "good guys win in the end" to the children of Lafayette Police officers. His passionate thoughts came the week after Lafayette Police Corporal Michael Middlebrook was shot and killed while returning to a call. It is something I've shared with my kids and I hope you will too.

We'll miss you, Brooks!
