Reflections for Police Officer Jeremy Nicholas Henwood
I never met Officer Henwood, but we were brothers in many ways, we were both US Marines, and as a Police officer. Its a terrible tragedy for his family and friends, my deepest condolences to all. May you all rest in comfort knowing that Nicholas, is in a much better place now, a place where he is loved and appreciated. God Bless you all.

Police Officer Jeremy Nicholas HENWOOD ... the passage of time will never diminish our sincere appreciation for your dedicated service and ultimate sacrifice for us.
God Bless You as you continue to watch over your Kentucky colleagues who must carry on without you.

I just viewed a submission on YouTube that showed Officer Henwood purchasing a cookie for a child at McDonald's on the day of and shortly before he was killed in the line of duty. Officer Henwood's act of kindness toward a member of the community he served is the standard we should all emulate as police officers. Semper Fi, and rest in peace.

It seems like just yesterday I remember hearing your story on the news Jeremy. Such a senseless tragedy still leaves me in disbelief. You'll never be forgotten, because legends never die but heroes live forever. God bless you and your entire family. As always we've got the watch from here

God Bless you and your family, Rob Henwood, for the loss of your hero son Jeremy. I heard the father that lost a child once say, "When we lose a child, we don't bury them in a cemetery, we bury them in our hearts". Having lost a teenage daughter myself, I knew exactly what he meant. Even though it's been 28 years since she was murdered, I've carried her with me everyday and will until my last breath.

You reached out to a kid you never knew and showed him kindness and provided him a role model. To shape a young life, that is a precious thing and what you did says so much about your character. That kid will grow up and do great things because you reached out to him the way you did. It is so tragic that you would be cut down moments later in a senseless and unprovoked attack. You were a good man taken too soon. Rest in peace sir. And my God watch over your friends and family as well as that kid you were so kind to.

Jeremy was a Marine as am I. He was my brother regardless of having never met him. Like him, I too joined law enforcement following my time served in the U.S. Marine Corps. It saddened me deeply when I attended his funeral while I was in the Police Academy. It was one the instructors and academy who thought it would be eye-opening to attend. Having attended several funerals while in the Marine Corps you can never get used to the sound of TAPS. Jeremy was a wonderful person, Marine, Officer, son and sibling. He will always be remembered for his unselfishness. What is often forgotten to be mentioned is the fact Jeremy is seen on video footage moments before he is fatally shot. In the video Jeremy is seen purchasing food for a small child in line at McDonalds. Jeremy, you will be missed brother. Semper Fidelis and thank you for all you did and still do from up above.

I remember this Officers death and how he lived. No community can afford any officer but especially one of Officer Henwood's caber.

While stationed aboard the base in 29 palms ca, I had the pleasure to meet, train with, and compete along side Jeremy on a competitive shooting team. You were a fine Marine officer, I can only imagine you were a great police officer as well. God bless sir.

Thank you Officer Henwood for your years of service to our country, and for your dedication and service to the community you served so selflessly. You will never be forgotten. My brother Leroy was also a veteran, and was killed in the line of duty in Louisiana in 1972.

Day in and day out I work with officers in NY. Most are just going through the motions of their day. Everytime I get angry at them I read your story and remember that you are part of the breed that protects and helps us to stay safe. I hope more officers were like you. It would certainly make everyone love the NYPD and San Diego police dept.
I hope more people are aware of the great man you were.
