While scanning through this site, I learned that KATHLEEN ANGIE BRISCOE had been killed.
We went through Academy Class #25 together. That class started the first week of September, 1979.
I was saddened to learn of her death.

I remember like it was yesterday. My first day on the job with JPSO, I was a nervous wreck. I was walking up to the door of the 3rd district roll call room, and there you were, feeding the cats. You looked up at me with a big smile on your face and said, "welcome to the 3rd, my name is Kathy, now don't be nervous". You then showed me around, and really made me feel welcomed. On this 27th anniversary of your death I,want to thank you and say what a pleasure it was working with you.

KATHY,
ALTHOUGH I NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO MEET YOU I FEEL AS IF I HAVE KNOWN YOU MY WHOLE LIFE. I TALK TO YOUR BROTHER JOHN EVERY DAY AND I LOVE LISTENING TO ALL THE GREAT STORIES ABOUT YOU NOT JUST FROM THE JOB PERSPECTIVE BUT ALSO THE REAL YOU AWAY FROM JPSO. YOU WERE FULL OF LIFE AND LOVED TO HAVE A GOOD TIME. I AM HAPPILY ENGAGED TO LITTLE JOHN AND I KNOW THAT HE HAS SOME BIG SHOES TO FILL TRYING TO FOLLOW IN YOUR FOOTSTEPS. I KNOW THAT IF YOU WERE HERE TODAY YOU WOULD BE SO PROUD OF HOW FINE A PERSON HE HAS TURNED OUT TO BE. LITTLE JOHN TELLS ME STORIES ABOUT THE MANY ADVENTURES OF AUNT KATHY. THE UNIT COMING TO THE HOUSE AND BEING ABLE TO SIT IN IT. BIG JOHN TELLS ME STORIES FROM WHEN Y'ALL WERE KIDS AND I LOVE HEARING THEM. I WISH THAT I COULD HAVE MET YOU AND REALLY GOT TO KNOW THE KATHY THAT EVERYONE LOVED. I KNOW THAT YOU ARE ON THE ETERNAL PATROL AND THAT YOU ARE WATCHING OVER YOUR FAMILY AND BROTHERS AND SISTERS. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH A STRONG WOMAN.
THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

It is hard to believe it has been so many years that you have been gone. You were great to work with from a dispatcher's perspective. You were a great person and a important part of "Thacker's Attackers".

Kathy was great, caring, and giving person as well as a dedicated law enforcement officer. At the time of her death she was off duty backing up another deputy on a burlary in progress. She is missed by her old third district crew, Thacker's Attackers."
