Reflections for Senior Police Officer Jaime D. Padron



We are getting closer to April, and while you are in my thoughts and prayers every day of the year, the month of April indeed is difficult. I will never forget our times together, such as:

- Learning about your wife's pregnancy while we ate at Red Lobster

- Our discussion and expanding on the definition of "Protect and Serve"

- The only thing Black and White on the job is the Patrol Car

- You telling me that a guy named "Jose" unknown-last-name from Acuña was moving dope to San Angelo. Come on bro really. We still can't find him.

- Other misc good times.

It is important that you know, your EOW has triggered:

- Close and greater bonding with the Padron family.

- Reflections and "lessons" on how to steer the course of my own life. Thank you for being a teacher and advisor from 2012 to Present

- My Re-prioritizing of what is "really" important

- Hyper awareness (admittedly this can be detrimental) in regards to officer safety and threats on "the street"

You will never be forgotten mi hermano.

Te amo mucho

You were taken from us 3 yrs ago, today. You would be so proud of our babies, I guess they're not babies anymore. Not a day has gone by that we don't think/talk about you. We know that you are with us, but it's not the same. We miss you and love you, always.

I was an Observer at the CLEAT Conference in McAllen in 2012 when I heard of this tragedy. I had the honour of meeting Jaime's wife and children too. A colleague of Jaime gave me a Blue Knights patch in Memory of Jaime. I'm returning to Texas this year to participate in the 2015 Ride for the Fallen. I'll be proudly wearing Jaime's patch on my vest on the ride to remember him, his family, colleagues and all fallen officers. RIP Mate.

I never met Officer Padron, but I remember hearing this news and it made my heart very sad. I watched part of the trial and the reading of the sentence...the statements of his friends and family tugged at my heart, but none more than those letters his daughters wrote. I am so very sorry they have had to go through this horrible situation, but, as many have stated here, Officer Padron will NEVER be forgotten. RIP Sir!

I never met Jaime. Last year I participated in the Police Unity Tour and rode from Portsmouth, VA to Washington, DC in his memory. It was an honor to have been able to do that. After the ride I mailed the bracelet I wore to the Padron family.

My father was killed in the line of duty in Pecos County TX in 1988 and I would like the opportunity to speak with any family member of Officer Padron concerning the trial and what with follow for them. After 20 years of appeals, I witnessed the execution of my Dad's killer. My heart goes out to this family as they are about to embark on this horrible, lengthy process. I would like to share my experience and offer any help that I can be to this family in your time of need. God Bless you all.

This past weekend marked the anniversary of the day you were taken away from us. Its only been a year but it feels like just yesterday I got the heart wrenching news that you were gone.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of you! I'm still waiting on the day that I won't break down or tear up when I hear your name or see your picture. You've changed my life and I'll never forget you or the conversations we shared every morning over vanilla dunkin donuts coffee. :) You're truly and deeply missed!! RIP Jaime

Jaime ... today is the 1 year anniversary of your E.O.W. YOU are missed every minute of every day. You have left an unimaginable legacy ... you would be so proud of your wife Amy, Ariana and Olivia. They have shown the strength and courage you always knew they had. Please continue to watch over them - always. I have no doubt that you are as busy on the other side - as you were here on our earthly home. So many of the people you left behind miss and love you - you have left a void that no one will ever fill.

Approaching a year since you commenced standing watch over your brothers and sisters of The Thin Blue Line. Many visit your final resting place to reflect, pray, mourn and remember you, each in their own way. They carry you in their hearts daily. Some share a humorous story about your mischevious exploits. And some continue to honor your memory through their service to others. Eternal peace to you and those who love and miss you. Semper Fidelis!
