Reflections for Sergeant James Timothy Chapin


The word Hero can get thrown around so much these days. My hero's are and always have been my "kiddos". We lost too many of my Hero's during my time there. Thank you for running towards the violence and protecting those that needed it so. Bless your amazing family and all the families of all my Hero's. Lord please protect those still serving our communities. I know they have some amazing angels watching over them.

FALLEN HEROES - From the time I was conceived God had for me a plan. He wanted me to get involved to help my fellow man. I know some were against it but God knows what is best. Now I am at home with him and have perfect peace and rest. Heaven is so beautiful I'm walking streets of gold. And I'm serving others along with the saints of old. I know some still have anger about the way I died but God sees and bottles every tear you cry. As difficult as it may be please don't hold a grudge. Remember this my loved ones God alone will judge. Please don't be sad and mourn for me I'm doing what I love; serving God and guarding you from heaven up above.

Sgt. I think of you often, working here in our old stomping grounds. The team misses you daily and talks about you often. It is still so hard for us to this day to go to "that place", But we do, when they call. We miss the morning chats at Starbucks, daily jokes and cutting up! What memories!!!! I know you are watching over all of your brother's and sister's down here!! We appreciate it!! Thank you for being the kind of person and Sgt you were and THANK YOU for your dedication and service. Delta team all the way!!!! It's still as crazy as ever!!!

Today is a day of great reflection, as we think back on the sacrifices each of you gave to protect & serve. I am reminded of one Sgt. Tim Chapin. As a civilian employee & wife of an officer at the same agency, my heart is heavy today. If you have not thanked an officer today, please do so. Their sacrifices should not go unnoticed.
Thank you Sgt. Tim Chapin

Prayers! My husband is a deputy and I can only image the pain, hurt and sickness that this officers wife and children go through everyday of their lives. I remember when this happened, only 30 mins away from our town. It has bothered me ever since. Prayers from the fielding family!

I was a victim back in 2002 of the person who killed this officer and I am heart broken to see he continued on his evil path and Sgt Chapin's life was taken. I am sure he was a wonderful person who brought joy to many people's lives. For the rest of my life I will pray for his family to find peace.

We remember. We love. We carry on. I know you are proud of both your "personal family" and your "work family" for the way they've handled all of this madness with extreme grace under severe pressure. We miss you, but we know that we will see you again.

I did not know Sgt. Chapin personally but I knew who he was. What I leared through his death was that he was a GREAT MAN, husband, father, son, friend, christian, officer and HEREO!! His death affected me in a way I cannot explain yet. Sgt. Chapin has made me want to be a better person/officer. To see how many lives he touched was very moving! I just regret that I did not get to know you personally. THANK YOU for your SERVICE and SACERFICE!! You are a TRUE HERO and role model! RIP!
