Deputy Steve Mullins was killed when he was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle, being driven by three runaway juveniles, had been stolen in Florida and was being chased by members of another department. Deputy Mullins pulled his cruiser into the lane of traffic in which the van was traveling to protect the traffic ahead of him. The van crashed into the cruiser, knocking Deputy Mullins into the grill of a wrecker approximately 25 feet away. He was flown to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The 15-year-old driver of the van was charged as an adult and found guilty of felony murder and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison. He was released after serving only five years.

Deputy Mullins is survived by his wife, stepson, and three daughters.

I knew you early in my law enforcement profession. I can recall my times on Delta shift when I would meet up with you and just talk between our North and South end zones. You were a man of faith and inspriation to a young recruit like me. I never knew what impact you would have on my life, but after twenty-five years, I do now.

I am the training coordinator at my agency now, every class I have with new recruits begins with a prayer and a thought of why I do this. You always come to mind. Many officer's go through their professional life never feeling the way we do that have lost friends. Some don't understand why we are sometimes hard or what is driving us to train to a level of perfection. I would say it's because of men like you that influenced men like me.

One day my friend, my watch will end as well, till then, I will prepare those that will proceed us in this profession.

Thank you for being a friend. God bless you and the life you paved for others.
