Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over six years. I pray that William's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

I feel how weak and fruitless must be any word of mine which should attempt to beguile you from the grief of a loss so overwhelming. But I cannot refrain from tendering you the consolation that may be found in the thanks of the Republic they died to save. I pray that our Heavenly Father may assuage the anguish of your bereavement, and leave you only the cherished memory of the loved and lost, and the solemn pride that must be yours to have laid so costly a sacrifice upon the altar of freedom.

Yours, very sincerely and respectfully,

Abraham Lincoln

I think I may have worked with the Trooper during a Football Game in Gainesville Florida! While the Death of any Law Enforcement Officer is a hard thing it is harder when you either know the person or know of the person! As a Master Sergent, Sergeant Willam Bishop as guided many a New Trooper threw His years! The Knowledge and experience lost in too high to put a price on!

My heart bleeds for the loss of one who was loved, one who was a protector, and one who was and still is an inspiration to many. May God open his kingdom to an honored one coming home. Prayers for the family.

We have lost a well-known and well-loved and respected man in Master Sergeant. It takes a very special man to make the rank of Master Sergeant in the Florida Highway Patrol and Bishop was that man. Go with God Sgt. and meet all you brothers in heaven. God Bless his family and friends.

For Sergeant William T. Bishop:

The duties of the highway patrol officer is fraught with danger, and hardly anything is more deadly than working on interstate highways along side of vehicles passing by at high speed. The average highway patrol officers are, in the course of their assignments, only feet and inches from fast-paced vehicles, many of whose operators have little regard for the officer's safety, others safety - or their own. Caution and care, though employed by the officer, does only little to reduce the chance of being struck by passing motorists (preoccupied with phones, texting, refreshments, smoking and plain inattentiveness) who fail to use preventive measures (signaling, moving over when possible, employing four-way flashers, along with slowing-down) to avoid collisions and accidents. Strict traffic-law enforcement - if anything at all - is the key to reducing such situations for the future.
We regret Sergeant Spaulding's needless, tragic, and excruciatingly horrible death and honor him for his thirty years of keeping the public safe and render him a profound and final salute. He was a dedicated and noble soldier-of-the-law, with unusual and remarkable longevity, who was cheated of a well-earned retirement. May he rest in peace.

As a former LEO in FL and CO., It is hard for me to hear of senseless tragedies like this. You were a light for those you trained, those you worked with, and those who looked up to you as a role model. RIP Sarge. You made a difference to many.
