Tomorrow marks another year without you. It seems like only yesterday you were here with us. Words can't say enough how much we miss you, your smiles, your jokes. You were sheriff for a time but son husband father brother and uncle for a lifetime. We will never forget.

Thank you sir for your service and your sacrifice. I often find myself leaving reflections on here for officers I don't know. You having the same last name, made it easy to drop by and thank you for your service and to pay my respects. Everyday I visit my fathers page and find that someone left a reflection and paid respect in some way. God bless you and your family.

E.C. and his family were very close to my family. I grew up next door to his parents. His wife was my elementary teacher and his daughter and niece were my childhood playmates. Losing him was like losing a family member. I will always remember his sense of humor. He could make anyone laugh. Everytime he would visit his parents I always went over to see him. He always made a day a better one. This rare gift is greatly missed.

2001 was a VERY BAD year for several reasons. I am thankful your loved one is
with the Lord and the evil of this world is far, far away from him now. May the
Lord Jesus continue to comfort and heal those who still miss him. Thanks for your service and your sacrifice, Sheriff.

Former Police Officer
Fauquier County, Va
March 19, 2008
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

To Sheriff E.C. Mulllins and his loved ones:
On this the fifth anniversary of your tragic death, please know that your memory is honored and revered today.
My heart goes out to your family. You’re in our thoughts and our prayers.
Sheriff Mullins, you rescued us, saved our possessions, our lives and our families. You are one of the rare heroes among us. You were always there for us in the most traumatic moments of our lives. No matter when we called, we just expected that you would come and do whatever it took to help us, and you always met our expectations. Your selflessness and dedication are awe-inspiring.
This world, this country, your community truly are better places because of you. To have lost you is a great tragedy, an irreplaceable, immeasurable loss for society. We are grateful for and to you, and honor you for all you did for us day in and day out whether you received a word of thanks or praise.
Rest in Peace, Sheriff Mullins. I am humbled by your valor, courage, and dedication.
This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the distinquished service Sheriff Mullins gave to his community and the citizens of Mississippi, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on March 20, 2001.

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer.
Tonight, March 20, 2005 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Sheriff E.C. Mullins who died in the line of duty on this date four years ago.
When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.
Sheriff Mullins’ sacrifice will never be forgotten.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003).
We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.
These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

To the family of my fallen comrade,
My name is Christopher M. Hess and I am the son of a 24-year veteran of the Easton, Pennsylvania Police Department. It is with great sadness and grief that I learn of the death of your love one. Whenever a brother or sister falls in the line of duty, it always has a profound and lasting effect on me.
Although my father was and “inside” officer for his last 14 years of service, I often feared for not only his safety, but also for the men and women who serve along side of him. Being a police officer in this day and age is the most difficult job out there. Your loved one has paid the ultimate price protecting the citizens of your community as well as the entire country from those who have now regard for humanity. Please know that there are many other people who are sharing in your pain and grief at this very moment, for when one of our own pays the ultimate price, a little bit of us passes with them. Your loved one is a hero who will never be forgotten. I realize that the pain and grief may seem too great to handle, but feel comforted by knowing that is an extended family out here who support you and are praying for your comfort, safety, and well being. Your family will always be in my family’s mind and prayers. We wish you peace in handling the rough times ahead. May God grant you a speedy closure.
The Hess family in Easton, Pennsylvania
My thoughts and prayers go out the the family of Sheriff E.C. Mullins.

While traveling down Hwy 49 S in Simpson County,Ms. I noticed a section of the highway dedicated in memory of Sheriff E.C. Mullins. This is quite a honor. Sheriff Mullins deserves this honor. He was serving his county and doing a very good job. He always had a smile and treated all the same Rich, poor, black,white made no difference to him.
Everytime I pass that sign it reminds me of him and his desire to serve the people.
