TUXEDO PARK – A stiff autumn wind carried the mournful notes of "Amazing Grace" from the arms of a solitary bagpiper into a gray afternoon sky as family, friends and fellow police officers remembered Jason D. Conklin, a rookie cop who died in the line of duty last August. They gathered yesterday around a large gray stone, a simple memorial created among the grass and trees just behind the police station where Conklin worked. "You will never be forgotten," read part of the inscription. Conklin – Tuxedo Park police shield number 957 – died at the age of 22. At the time of his death, Conklin was apparently chasing a speeder in the department's Ford Expedition, a sport utility vehicle. The truck overturned on a curve, and Conklin was thrown out the open driver's side window. The 6,200 pound truck rolled on top of ! ! him. Conklin's death stunned fellow officers in this small department, a force that patrols an upscale village of about 1,000 people who live in homes clustered around a private lake. Waves of sympathy poured in from the law enforcement community following Conklin's death. Yesterday, uniformed and non-uniformed officers lined up shoulder-to-shoulder and saluted Conklin once again. Tuxedo Park Police Chief Bill Bortnowsky stood silently behind a podium as family and friends placed flowers on the stone memorial. Those flowers and wreaths served as a fragile, but visible reminder of something Chief Bortnowsky had said just moments before: "His memory will always be carried in the hearts of those who honor him today."
