My heart goes out to this officer's friends, family, and department. I hope that everyone can find comfort in Revelation 21:4 "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". One day, we'll be able to welcome back our loved ones that we've lost to death and never have to lose them again. Until then, my sincerest condolences goes out to everyone that knew this brave officer.

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.”

I know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

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 seven years. I pray that Ron's life and death will bring glory to God.

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

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

Sgt. Ron Helus,
Thank you for the ultimate sacrifice. I would have liked to have worked by your side.
We can only assume that you were a short time from retirement, but somehow, I doubt seriously that given your sacrifice, that was the case!!! Most LE officers can not even fathom a career lasting 29 years, and yet still, you had the burning desire, courage and integrity to uphold the vows that you took as a rookie.

Sincere condolences to your family, colleagues, friends, and community.
(2 Cor 1:3).

Rest in Peace Brother..

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman 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, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman 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 policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Prevent The Fallen Hero
(to those who risk their lives daily for us)

Everyday as they get ready for work,
they push aside the possibility that they may not make it home.
Everyday as they walk out that door,
they try to reassure their family that they will be coming home.

When they put on that vest,
they pray that it will serve its purpose if it is needed.
When they put on that belt,
they pray that nothing on it will fail upon use.

When they pull up to a house or building,
they pray that everything will be routine. No surprises.
When they pull over that vehicle on the road,
they pray that everything will be routine. No surprises.

Cowardliness results in surprises.
Surprises cause injuries.
Ignorance and fear results in surprises.
Surprises take lives.

Everyday as they get ready for work,
they push aside the possibility that they may not make it home.
Everyday as they walk out that door,
they try to reassure their family that they will be coming home.

When they put on that vest,
pray that it will not have to be put to use.
When they put on that belt,
pray that they don’t need to use anything on it.

Honesty and integrity prevents surprises.
Surprises can cause injuries.
Honour and respect prevents surprises.
Surprises can take lives

Thank you for all that you did in your 29 years. I can't imagine how it must have felt to stand outside that bar and listen to those shots ring out. And yet, you went in. You gave yourself for others, and there can be no greater sacrifice, no greater reflection of one's character. Rest in peace, Sergeant Helus.
