DLM03657 Police officer Ed Valerio, 62, back right, and his son and fellow officer Joshua Valerio, 28, left, talk with talk with Shawn Fitzpatrick, 23, and his wife Kelly, after waking them from where they were sleeping under a bridge along the Cherry Creek Bike Path in Denver, Colo. Wednesday, Sept. 13, 2006. This was Ed Valerio's last real patrol after more than 30 years on the force, six years as a bike cop. Since becoming a bike cop Ed has gotten to know many of Denver's homeless population and has always taken pride in treating them with respect and taking time to help them when he can. After speaking with the couple, who just recently became homeless, Ed took the time to make a phone call and schedule an appointment for them with Mike McManus with the Colorado Coalition for the Homeless, who might be anble to help them. Now Ed is retiring Josh is going to take over his father's beat and his compassionate work with the homeless.
