LOCAL HERO | KEVIN PALLAS Beyond Policing Aside from the support, affirmation, and companionship from Kris, Sgt. Pallas has also benefited in receiving free haircuts. “Kris has been a stylist for over 25 years - she does a fantastic job. I haven’t paid for a haircut in 27 years,” said Sgt. Pallas.

We do some light travel to Lake Superior and the countryside of Northern Wisconsin to visit family and enjoy the lake.” “We’ve been to well over 100 concerts since we’ve been together.

I won’t say that we have a better kind of closeness because everybody in their professions have their closeness. However, having that relationship builds that - that good life of connecting under a common purpose.

It’s a “well done” and knowing that everything that one would do has meaning when a career comes to an end,” said Sgt. Pallas. • urbantoadmedia.com / THE GOOD LIFE / 35
