So often our cops are killed by convicted murderers, many of whom are on parole. As coordinator of ODMP's no parole for cop killers, I have been shocked by the sheer numbers of cops that were murdered by people on bail from a previous murder or paroled from a previous murder. As the daughter of an officer that was killed by a man that had been arrested 103 times in the 10 years prior to daddy's murder, I certainly understand The added pain and anger when a loved one is killed by a person that had A violent background. My thoughts and prayers go out to officer Burbridge's Family As well as his brother and sisters in Blue who though many don't realize that they lost a family member Too. If I can in any way be of assistance to his family, Blood and blue.You can reach me at [email protected]

Sheriff Mark, thank you for your service. When you chose your career, you knew it would involve putting yourself in danger day after day, and you performed your duties for 12 long years. Your reward in heaven will be great. May our Lord immerse you in His Divine Mercy.

I am so sorry for your loss. It upsets me that you have to give your life in order to do a job. I have 3 nephews in law enforcement and my son and late husband was in law enforcement. Just no words. Praying for all of you.

God, filled with mercy, dwelling in the heavens' heights,
bring proper rest beneath the wings of your Lord,
amid the ranks of the holy and the pure,
illuminating like the brilliance of the skies the soul of Mark Burbridge who went to his eternal place of rest.
May You who are the source of mercy shelter him beneath Your wings eternally,
and bind his soul among the living, that he may rest in peace. And let us say: Amen.
