Officer Williams, ... I enlisted in the Metropolitan Police Department in November 1966 (Class #191). I never met you personally, but I recall the day of your death because it was the day before I turned 23 years old. The year I got married. Our lives were basically in the same tract. You and I, and a lot of other officers, arrived at work to put in our tour intending to return home to our families. For reasons known only to God your time on earth ended on February 27, 1968. I know your face well as the newspaper article went into my scrapbook, along with other MPDC officers, that I kept for many years. You were a brother officer then and you remain so now. I look back after over 35 years of police service and don't know why some of us lived and others died. I only know that you stand tall among us as a valiant and worthy hero. You are inspiration to all who choose to join the MPDC and law enforcement everywhere. You shall not have died in vain.

Today on the 40th anniversary of your death, we pause and say a prayer for you and your dedication and sacrifice.
I was starting my career the week you gave your life.
Rest in peace Sir you are not forgotten.

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

Rest easy Brother Williams, we have the watch...

I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!
