Reflections for Police Officer Delma Devon Adams

Well DD ,it's been a long time. It's great to see this memoral for officers.I was working that night,(north side) I'll never forget the call on the radio.We were all headed that was as we always would do.
I was at your funeral,and think most of raleigh was there also.That was my first and last.
DD,you were a great impression. As I went on to NCSHP,I came by and visted you ever weekend and would talk. You really helped me thru the tough times.
As I sit and view your picture it sure brings back great memories.You were a great officer and friend.I'll always remember you. APA

The City and Department have changed quite a bit since your time on the department. However, you are remembered everyday. Your picture, as well as pictures of the other Raleigh Police Officers that have died protecting the City, is hanging in all of the Police stations. You watch over us daily.

Thank you.

Hey Jimmy ...

It's twenty-five years today. You're still not forgotten and you never will be.

My dad worked on your squad at RPD and planned your funeral. He still cannot talk about that night at all. I find it very disturbing that the lady that shot you continues to come up for parole. We all as law enforcement officers should make our voice heard on this one. She should never enjoy freedom again. She took yours from you coldly. God Bless you sir.

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. No officer who gives his/her life for us need ever be forgotton. You died a hero; rest in peace.
