On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Police Officer Elias Martinez and the extended law enforcement family of the Metropolitan Transit Authority Police Department, Harris County, Texas.

End of Watch: Sunday, September 17, 2017.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your memory.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

My condolences to the family and friends of Police Officer Elias Martinez. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the joy of having our heavenly Father return your dear one to you.

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 Elias' 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 think this poem is appropriate for my Brother in Blue. I will miss him and think of him often.
John P. Zepeda

Rider down.
The call went out.
The caller cried.
There was no doubt.
When you spend your life pushing the wind sometimes the wind lets you down.

Rider down. Rider down.

He drank from life
From the brim to the dreggs
Standing tall
With both feet on the pegs
Grinnin' from ear to ear
With that engine completely unwound

Rider Down. Rider Down.

Strong will
Never givin' in
He wore his code
Right there on his skin
Straight on
Come what may
It was his life
He lived it his way

Rider down. Rider down.

Draped in black
We said good bye
With heads hung low
Under gathering skies
They say the Lord works in mysterious ways
Maybe it'll make sense one of these days

Rider Down. Rider Down

So as you go
And make your way
Please heed
The words I say
You can cuss life for moving so slow
But it's God Damned amazing how quickly it goes.

Rider Down. Rider Down.

~ Gabe Wooton

Rest In Peace Sonny!
