Reflections for Lieutenant Charles A. "Bo" Harrison


Rest in peace Brother Bo, you will never be forgotten.

Son of G. Truman Wortham EOW 7/15/03

Assistant Chief Carl Wortham
Sand Springs Police Dept. Okla

It is a sad day when a man who gave so much of his life in the service of others is killed by a coward, when he was only days away from retirement. Lt harrison was an outstanding role model for his community. May the coward who shot him in the back never have peace. God bless Lt harrison and his wife, children and family. Rest in peace Brother.

Police Officer
Tampa Police Department

To the family and friends of Lt. Harrison:

It is hard to believe that this happened... He served his country in Vietnam, and then served it for so many years in Law Enforcement when he got home. He truly was a hero, and I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. It is ironic that he would be killed so close to his retirement, yet he died doing what he seemed to really have a calling for, serving his community and his country. May God bless and comfort you through these difficult times.

God bless you all To Bos wife i know how you feel this was the first year in twenty years Glenn and I would have time for the fun things in life but I know God is giving Bo and Glenn the time of their lives but it is hard to keep that in mind when you miss them so much i will keep you all in my prayers

Donna Hicks surviving spouse EOW 02-20-0

Rest in peace brother in blue.
The watch is ours now.

God bless your family.

Pennsylvania State Police

My heart is heavy watching these names being entered on this Role of Honor in the past few days. Yet, I continue to have faith that God, our Father is still in charge.

May God accept Lt. Harrison, his service and sacrifice. May the bless and keep his family, and strengthen the members of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. All of this in Jesus Name..Amen.

Deepest sympathy to the family of Lt. Charles (Bo) Harrison.



Rest in Peace my Brother. You are with God and your Family Now and Forever.

God Bless you Brother

To Lieutenant Harrison family and friends our hearts and prayers go out to you..

God Bless you

Terry Miyares, surviving spouse
Officer Emilio F. Miyares, Hialeah PD, FL, EOW 11/6/86

How terrible, a barve, fine and upright man, a leader and family man, sniped down by cowards. It is so horribly ironic that he survived Vietnam and 31 years on the street., only to die 15 days before he was to retire. LT Harrison died a hero's death.

The State of Florida can remember him as a true hero and knight of Justice. He now patrols the streets of Heaven with St. Michael.

I pray for his family, friends and colleagues. God Bless and be safe.

We are truly devastated at Bo's loss.
We all recall you gave your best.
You did your job, now you can rest.
Your comrades now can cover your post
as you take your place with the Heavenly Host.

God Bless Our Fallen Brothers & Sisters.
Our prayers will be with you, your family, and co-workers!

Ptlm. P.K. Harding

Please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in. Thank you Lieutenant Harrison for a job well done. Please continue to watch over us and protect us as only you can. You will forever be at our side and in our hearts.

For those of you who still have loved ones with us please take the time to tell them how much you appreciate and care about them.


If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.


My fiance, Dennis McElderry, was the first law enforcement casualty of 2003. It saddens me to know that Dennis was not the first to die in the line of duty, nor will he and Charles be the be the last to die this way.

Having gone through the pain of losing Dennis I can truly understand and feel the pain that Lieutenant Harrison's family, friends, and co-workers must be feeling. My heart goes out to you all. I wish I could give you a few words of wisdom to help you through this tough time, but there isn't anything I can really say or do to make the situation better. Just know that my thoughts are with you.

Please accept my condolences on behalf of the McElderry family and remember that Charles is part of huge law enforcement family. If you ever need anything any number of them will be there for you (as I've quickly found out!) From reading the many reflections posted here, I am certain Charles was well respected and well loved. Thank you for a job well done and for helping to make this world a safer place for us all. Please take care of my fiance Dennis.

Peace, Love, Luck, and Happiness!

Jocelyne Brar (Drakesville, IA)
Dennis McElderry's fiancee - E.O.W. (01/03/03)

There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.

According to Romans 13.1-5...
God ordains the Peace Officer’s profession.
The Peace Officer is sent by God.
The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because it is honored by God.

To the family of Lieutenant Charles (Bo) Harrison and the Pasco County Sheriff's Office, your extended family of Law Enforcement Officers grieve with you during this time. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around each of you and comfort you during this most difficult time.

To all my brothers and sisters, please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in.
May God be with you every day, please remember, we are a part of the largest family in the world and when one hurts we all hurt.

Rest in peace with our other fallen Brothers and Sisters. We will continue the fight in your honor.

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."
John 15:13

"Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called the children of God."

Hebrews 6:10

Virginia State University Police Department

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. Today, June 1, 2003 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Lt. Charles Harrison who died on this date just hours ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Lt. Harrison's sacrifice will never be forgotten
