Bryant I knew you better than Todd. We went to High School together and talked alot when you worked midnights in Deerfield. We sort of lost touch after. I never forgot you or the the dedication of your family. I'm on the other coast know and things are alot slower! I use your story and those of some of the things we did in Broward to teach my new trainees and to humor them. Thank you for teaching me! I miss you Brother!

17 years ago we were in the academy together. During the academy you were always making people laugh and you were there for everyone. You graduated for Deerfield but your heart brought you to Ft. Lauderdale. There you again were there for everyone. You are missed, there is not a day that goes by I dont think of you. I know that you must be helping everyone in heaven as you did here. Miss you..

It has been several years, we all miss the times we had together. You are not forgotten my friend, your legend carries on with all of us daily. Thanks for keeping it safe for the rest of us 10-8 down here. The Honor Guard has risen to a new level without you. You would be proud!!

It's been 8 years now and I still see you when ever I talk to your twin brother Todd. I still sometimes call him by your name! You and I served in the Honor Guard together and patrolled together on the midnight shift and we had a blast! I wish I had not had to play Taps for you my brother. Having you leave us so suddenly is a great lesson that we should all remember! Don't leave things unsaid! You might not get the chance to share them later! God Bless your family!

God holds a special place for those who give their lives in the service of others. I've lost 5 fellow officers in the time I've served, so I know how it feels. The word HERO is overused these days, but you are definitely a HERO. May you rest in God's heavenly peace always, brother. You did your job well.

Bryant...not a time goes by when I hear the song, "The Dance" by Garth Brooks that I don't think of you and the loving way you lived your life. I heard it this morning and it felt like only yesterday when we were all sitting in the Preforming Arts Center saying good-bye to you. You will never be forgotten. You were a good friend. Rest in peace.

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer.

Tonight, January 6, 2004 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Patrolman Bryant Howard Peney who died in the line of duty on this date eight years ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Patrolman Peney's sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Gone but not forgotten. It has been almost eight years and you are still "the wind beneath our wings", keeping watch from above. To your family; we shall never forget, each fallen officer takes a part of us with them.

With prayers & love,

At times, one thinks that the power of a teacher can be measured with a ruler but we can be wrong. It can only be measured in time when the teacher's knowledge and respect shines through you. Time goes by and I still remember the importance of the things taught to me by you. Within all of the lessons taught, the one that stays with me the most is, be a friend to all that meet you and you will be loved.

Thank you!

Bryant and his brother, Todd, and I all went to high school together.  Bryant was one of those truly nice guys and is truly missed.  I just wanted to say thanks to him and all of his fellow officers.  May God protect you EVERY day!

I never had the privelege of meeting you, although I feel I have.  I met your twin brother on May 15, 2000 in Washington D.C. during the National Police Memorial Ceremony.  I think about our converstion quite often and I can only imagine how it must feel to lose such a close relative, a twin brother.  My deepest sympothy goes out to you and your family.  Your brother loves you very much, this was quite evident during our conversation.  May God bless you as you look over your dearest brother and the rest of us who continue to work the road in memory of our fallen brothers.  Thank you for your service!

Bryant was a Field Training Officer with the Fort Lauderdale Police Department and was employed for six years before he was shot to death during a routine questioning on the evening of January 5,1996. Him and his partner had stopped a person who was acting suspicious on Federal Highway in this city. The culprit after questioning fled accross the highway with Bryant in pesuit. The culprit turned and fired a shot which entered his arm and then the arm pit into his body which severed the main arteries. Bryant died several hours later. Bryant was well liked by his department and friends. Over three thousand people attended his funeral which was held in the Performing Arts center with an overflow crowd. Since his death a park has been named in his honor and a scholarship fund established for children of police officers. In his memory four scholarships have been awarded to date. Bryant was a country and weastern fan and enjoyed his boat, scuba diving and dancing. Bryant's twin brother is a Sergeant with the police department.

I was a FLP Explorer and met you several times. You worked with our Explorer Unit more than a few times and impressed us all. I will never forget your time and effort, dedicated to the "Future Law Enforcement" program.

I am currently a Narcotics Detective in a city similar to the one you made the ultimate sacrifice for; you will never be forgotten!


Although you were far away I am deeply saddened by this sad news. May you rest in peace, Brother in Blue
