In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"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 who’s 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.

May God watch over the Family and Fellow Officers that put their lives on the line for us everyday. We all lose when one of these heroes fall. And this one was a terrible loss. A man who without care for his own safety did such a noble thing. I hope his family will find some type of peace during this time of mourning. God will not let them down. Keep Faith and know he is in a better place.

Their watch is over, now they patrol in Heaven.
September 6, 2017

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 Steve's life and death will bring glory to His name.

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

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

I am not a Police Officer but Sgt. Steve Perez made a huge impact in my life he was one of the officers that was head a program called C.O.P.S. I was in the 7th grade when I join the group. He ans his wife Cheryl were there every Monday at 7 P.M. rain or shine to help young girls by being mentors. We went on field trips volunteered. Because of this amazing group I made life long friends and went to school and received my legal studies degree.

Thank you Sgt. Perez for being an inspiration! May you rest in peace and know that you are remembered for helping many young lives.

I am a retired Houston Police Office with 31 yrs of service. I retired in Dec. 2014 During my tenure as a Houston Police Officer, I worked overtime programs with Traffic Enforcement. I had the pleasure of working with Sgt. Steve Perez. I worked with him for 3 yrs. I found him to be an excellent supervisor and a very nice person. He was easy to work for and he took care of the men working under his command. In 31 yrs working for HPD I had thousands of supervisors. He ranked high up to me as a supervisor. My condolences to the family. The world lost a true hero. Being a Sgt now with Harris County, I will try to be as good as a supervisor to my men as he was with me. Thank you for leading me and teaching me things while I worked under you, Sgt. Now, one Sgt to another one, rest in peace Sir.
