After his death, communications personnel in the Central Communications Center collected funds and items for a basket, which was delivered to the Salt River communications center on January 16, 2019. Police Communications Dispatcher Nikole McKinney coordinated the effort and was motivated by the tremendous outpouring of support the DPS Center received after the death of Trooper Edenhofer. It was an excellent display of employees supporting each other, even between agencies.
