Reflections for Patrolman Fred Rehmer

I worked with Fred in the Burlington PD. He was one of my trainers. He was a great officer and friend. You knew he had your 6. I miss him.

Fred you were the father I didn't get have for long I miss you every day. I still fell your spirit every once and a while,it makes me think of old times and fun we had. I'll be weighting by the window to go hunting with you,just wandering when you'll show up in that old red bronco

Hope you are listening and in a warm, happy place!

You were the brother I never had
Toy Trains
Guitar Music
Growing apart in distance,
but not in spirit

You chose a noble path
to help others
to respect and enforce the law
leaving us all in awe.

It may be better to burnout
than to just fade away
your life was fuller than most
and we still keep our hearts warm for you....

Your Cousin Chuckie

Patrolman Rehmer - Last Friday, on a very rainy morning, I stood in the State Assembly chamber when your name was one of almost 250 others read off during a motion regarding next month's Police Memorial Week. You are not forgotten. Thank you for your service to the people of Fort Morgan and the state of Colorado. May God grant you eternal rest and may His perpetual light shine upon you.

"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 whos 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.
