Reflections for Patrol Officer Justin Todd Wollam
We are forever indebted for the great sacrifice that Justin made. May the Lord forever bless and keep your family and loved ones.
Your enduring smile, warm heart and Texan gait will never be forgotten. God had a reason for taking you that will always be beyond our understanding, but I like Rick's sentiment, God must have needed a 34, code. God speed my brother.
OFC Mike Raleigh
Anchorage Police Dept.
Justin was a hard worker, and good at being a cop. He was not heavy-handed, badge-heavy, nor a coward. He was easy to get along with, easy to talk to, never complained at work, and always handled more than his share. Justin would back up officers without being asked. To Justin's family, I'm so sorry for your/ our loss. He will be sorely missed, and never forgotten.
"The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry. The face of the Lord is against evildoers, to cut off the memory of them from the earth. The righteous cry and the Lord hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The Lord is near to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit."
With tears, we bid you good-bye, until we meet again.
Your friends, Brett & Carol Sarber

I am so sorry for your loss. It is to far for me to travel but I have been to Anchorage and found it a beautifull place.
If I can assit you in any way please contact me.
Again, I give you my most sincere condolances. It is tough when one of us can no longer answer roll call.
You died a hero. You lived as a hero, to your co-workers, your wife and your child. We will carry on in your absence. Knowing that you are now a Guardian Angel to all or your LE Brothers and Sisters is some comfort. Rest in Peace Brother.
Inspector Tim Huff
Dear Officer Wollam,
Many thanks for serving us in Anchorage. And, inasmuch as you had to surrender your life, know that you go to God having certainly saved many more from this reckless delinquent.
Your life and service was not in vain.

What a Shame to die so young.We will say Prayers for you.Being a Policeman is like being a Soldier in a War zone' You never know when its your Time to go. 75 have died so far this Year.They are all in the Hands of God now.

How will we go on, now that you are gone?
You are no longer with us, so who responds when we ask for a 10-34?
The senseless way you were taken from us leads me to only one conclusion...God needed a cover unit, and none better to answer the call.
The men and women of the Anchorage Police Department WILL go on, in your honor! We do this knowing that we have a long, tall, Texas angel on our shoulders.
You will remain in our hearts always.

God Bless you sir, and may you find peace. Please watch over your brothers and sisters in LE as they go about their everyday lives. They might not suffer the "ultimate sacrifice" as you have, but your watch will help. Thank you for "protecting and serving." You shall not be forgotten.
To Ofc. Wollam and his family,
You will be in our prayers. You have paid the ultimate price for those you will not. Go forth and patrol from your heavenly post. We will serve in your honor. "UNA STAMUS"

Rest in peace Officer Wollam.
It is a great tragedy when an officer looses their life. It is extremly tragic when it is lost in a senseless act such as this.
Officers Wollam's friends and family are in our thoughts and prayers.
Deputy Steven D. Ray

This case is a prime example of the fact that you need to ensure that when you put on that uniform your right with the world. The fact that so many times we don't "pre-think" our day only leaves me wondering what would happen if my life was taken in the line of duty without warning. So many officers have been taken these months its hard not to have a heavy heart. A piece of all of us is gone forever. We only hope the lord above looks after us and those officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice watch over us in our daily battles. We are warriors of the modern ages. We live and die everyday. Our only hope is to make the difference in the communities that we have chosen to make our homes. The lucky ones make a difference in a lot of communities. To Justin, you will live within us. To the family and friends, know that you have our love.

To the Family, Relatives, Friends, and Colleagues of Officer Justin T. Wollam,
We were all saddened at the news of this officer making the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. Our sincere condolences go out to each of you and our prayers go up for you.
May god bless and keep you in His mighty arms,

Officer Justin T. Wollam was an excellent officer. His smiling face was always welcome in dispatch.
Our thoughts and prayer are with his family in this time of grief.
Louise Dunn, Dispatcher
Anchorage Police Department
My families thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Our family lost Trooper Moen 2 weeks ago and nothing that we can say can ease your pain. May God be with you and your family.
I'm very sorry to hear about the tragic death of Officer Wollam. It is surprising how many people show complete disregard for the lives of others by drinking and driving. However, Officer Wollam's sacrifice inspires me even more to do all that I can to become a police officer and protect people from these tragidies just as he did.
"Greater love hath no man that this, that a man lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13
I pray that his family, friends, and fellow officers find comfort through the hope that faith in the Lord always brings.
You are not forgotten! We will continue to do the job in your honor and in memory of you and all who laid down their lives so that we could live in a civilized society. We are stronger because of you. Rest in peace.

To the family and friends of Officer Wollam, Our thoughts and prayer go out to you.
My husband was also killed in line of duty when he was 27 and he also left our daughter when she was 4 and our son when he was 7, I know what your wife is going through right now, please take care of them from up in heaven and be always near them as the "angel" that you are now.
God Bless you always.
