Since the start of 2018 I decided that I wanted to write a hand-written note to each family/department of a fallen officer. I would write it as chaplain but represent my whole department, the Boone County Sheriff's Office in Indiana. I never imagined that I would be writing one for one of our own. It breaks my heart to write these notes for any reason, but to write one for Jake- that's so very hard. To any of our guys that read this or to Jen- I am continually lifting you all up in prayer. I pray that Jesus will carry you. I pray that the all seeing God will guide you in this dark, so dark you can't see, place you find yourself in. I saw his squad car at the station today. So covered with cards, flowers, and gifts- you can hardly see it. Even bags of dog food for Brik. I just cried when I saw that- so touching. Matthew 5:4

Sheriff Pickett, I pray for the repose of your soul and for comfort and consolation for your wife and two children. This must be the most difficult time for them, but hopefully, not for your soul, as it finds eternal peace in the arms of our Lord. May He immerse you and your family in His Divine Mercy.

Members of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police understand this pain. To honor Officers Tony Morelli and Eric Joering, our staff asks that everyone offer condolences and share this link. The Morelli, Joering and our Police families received love and support from all over the world when Tony and Eric were killed in the line of duty. That provided strength during that tragic time.
We ask that everyone send that same level of love and support to the immediate family of Deputy Sheriff Jacob Pickett and the extended law enforcement family of the Boone County Sheriff's Office, Indiana.

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.

It sure is a sad time for the Boone County Sheriff's Department as Deputy Sheriff Jacob Picket died from a gunshot wound he suffered two days before. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and the entire Boone County Sheriff's Department on this tragic happening.

Thank you for your service Deputy Pickett. Prayers go out to your family, freinds and the Boone County Sheriff Office. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. Matthew 5:9

"The Final Inspection"

The sheriff's deputy sheriff stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, deputy.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"

The deputy squared his shoulders and said,
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges
can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.

There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the deputy waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, deputy,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."
