On February 23, 2019 at 2304 hours, Chattanooga lost one if its finest. Ofc. Galinger having only been out of the police academy less than a month, lost his life in the line of duty. Ofc. Galinger was checking a road hazard when he was struck by a motorist who fled the scene. He is survived by his family, including his two children. While Ofc. Galinger only served the department for a short time, his sacrifice will be remembered.
