OLNEY, Md. (WUSA9) -- The grief-stricken parents of a Montgomery County police officer killed by a suspected drunk driver are demanding change.
Officer Noah Leotta passed away a few days after he was hit by a driver while on a task force to get impaired drivers off the roads.
The driver, Gustavo Reluzco, had already been arrested twice for drunk driving. Leotta's parents are calling for a national database to track repeat offenders.
"Everything is different. The first thing I think about in the morning is my son is gone," Marcia Leotta said.
The street where Noah Leotta grew up is now dotted with blue ribbons, hung in his honor. Rich Leotta is still wearing his son's badge.
"It’s hard to take it off. It was on him when he was struck," Rich Leotta said. "It’s a part of him, it’s a part of me."
