Sara Burns, 43, had wanted to be a police officer for a long time. “(Policing) is something that I think challenges you physically, mentally and socially; you need to be aware of those components. It’s a really challenging field and to survive you need to keep all of those in check,” she said when she first applied to police academy.

She leaves behind a husband and three children.
