“As a member of the Phoenix City Council, I commend the work of Officer Gregory McKay of the Phoenix Police Department for bringing to light the serious issues and cases uninvestigated by CPS.

He is an example of a dedicated and invested employee at the City of Phoenix. Officer McKay identified procedural failures and immediately brought the issue to light to stop an unacceptable practice and prevent additional children from remaining in danger. He showed initiative and took the lead. Our children are the future of our community; we must protect those who cannot protect themselves. Thank you, Officer McKay.”

-- Vice Mayor Bill Gates
