Steve Arkell worked Mondays as a part-time officer for the Brentwood Police Department.
And it was Monday of last week when, responding to a routine domestic disturbance call, he was shot and killed in the line of duty.
But Arkell was much more than an officer to the small town of about 4,000 people.
Those who knew him recall a man with a genuine passion for family and community.
If you’re looking for someone to talk to you about Arkell, there are few people more qualified than Exeter High School Athletic Director Bill Ball.
