Life after force is Code Blue for former officer

May 25, 2010

Chris Hickey never planned to leave the Broomfield Police Department to run his carpet cleaning business. It was just a twist of fate, or maybe part of his family`s destiny.

Hickey, 38, was a Broomfield motorcycle officer until he left the force in April, after 10 years, because of injuries sustained in the line of duty.

Fortunately, he had a job on the side on which to fall back. Hickey started Code Blue Carpet Cleaning years ago as a way to make a few bucks on weekends, but now it is his livelihood. From the Daily Camera.
