It’s easy to say that Nicole and Ervin Romans fell for each other fast. “26 days later, we got married,” Nicole said. (Credit: Gabrielle Karol, ABC10)
They became a family of six. Nicole said it was, in many ways, a perfect fit.
Ervin was a sergeant in the Oakland Police Department and a leader on the agency’s SWAT team. He had the day off on March 21, 2009, when he got the call that two officers had been shot.
“So he went out the door,” Nicole said. “An hour and a half later, I had someone knocking on my door.”
Every year, we host the annual Candlelight Vigil to honor the officers who were added to the walls of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. Over 20,000 law enforcement officers, survivors, and supporters will join us in Washington, DC on May 13.
If you'd like to light a candle, your donation allows you to dedicate a virtual candle with a personalized message. It's a meaningful way to thank an officer you know or recognize the service of all officers.
