Police Officer Noel Hawk suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after breaking up at a fight at a fast food restaurant in the 100 block of Oak Street at approximately 8:00 pm.

He and several other officers had responded to a dispute between an adult and a juvenile and were able to calm the situation before clearing the scene. A short time later several family members and friends of the subjects arrived at the location and a disturbance occurred.

Officers responded to the scene again and were placing two subjects under arrest when Officer Hawk suddenly collapsed. CPR was initiated but he was not able to be revived.

Officer Hawk had served with the Eatonton Police Department for 12 years. He is survived by his five children, parents, and a brother.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Noel died.

To the Hawk family, fellow officer, and all who call Noel beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Officer Hawk gave to his community and the citizens of Georgia, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 14, 2014.
