Reflections for Detective Sean Gerald Carrington

Although time doesn't stand still, it seems like just yesterday when you walked through the gates of Heaven. You will never be forgotten, but always honored as our hero. God bless you brother.

Sean , Rest in peace. You were a real hero who will always be remembered. It was my honor to have worked with you.

Detective Carrington, when a complete stranger leaves a reflection, it's out of respect for a fallen Officer. If that stranger is in law enforcement it's out of respect for a fallen Brother or Sister and the knowledge that, any one of us could be next and we want to acknowledge your sacrifice.

When a family member or friend, co-worker leaves a reflection, it's all of the above and so much more. I've read through a number of reflections left by those who knew and loved you best and it's so obvious what a special man you were. The love shown here proves that what you gave and would have continued to give was nothing short of yourself as a whole.

I now have a special admiration and mourn your murder all the more.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Rest easy my hero. You have done your time helping your fellow man. May the Almighty continue to hold you in his hands, while blessing your family and the N.Y.P.D.

You are loved and missed by so many. Working with you at NIC at Rikers Island was so long ago but I remember that amazing smile you had and baby face, always dancing. Your Mom raised a true gentleman.Rest In Peace

I stumbled upon your story and I continued to follow it till it brought me here. I myself have three little ones and I must say reading your daughters excerpt above is powerful. 12 years on the job and no day gets easy when you follow up on brothers that came before me who passed. Gods watching your daughter along side you and I pray to keep her safe. Your a blessing before during and after me

I stopped a truck driver today who went to the academy with Det. Carrington. After the inspection he told me to look up his friend. Nice to see he has been remembered and his memory made it all the way out to Benson, AZ.

It was my honor to research newspapers, magazines, online & books to find your ID CARD Photo. I found this photo in a 1999 NYPD MEDAL DAY BOOKLET about your heroic sacrifice. I felt it was necessary to have a photo on this website so that your family & friends can remember you. Rest Easy Hero! Always Remembered!

I knew Sean from our childhood in Queens. As adults we did not know each other. This morning I was thinking about him and his family. My prayers and thoughts are with his family, especially at this time.

I was just reading through the law enforcment officers we lost over the years. I came across you and found that I knew of you from meeting your daughter and fiancee. Years ago she and my daughter went to the same dance school. She is beautiful and growing up to be a wonderful young lady. May you forever rest in peace.

Hi Sean,
I can't believe it has been 16 years since you've been gone. You were put on this earth for just a short time but you touched so many people with your kindness, bubbling personality, sense of humor and your smile. There is not a day that you've not crossed my mind and wondering what you would have been doing right now. I wish you would have gotten that opportunity to see your daughter grow up. I know how much you loved her. I'm sure you are looking down on her now to see what a beautiful young lady she has grown up to be. I miss you very much. Rest in peace my friend.

Although it's been16 years on January 19, it still seems like yesterday Sean. I can still see your face when you came down to The Bronx Property Clerks Office. You were a great guy, and a truly decorated Detective. I thank you over and over for your dedication to NYPD. You will never be forgotten and I like many other retired NYPD officers, I will forever honor you. May God bless your beautiful daughter and she will continue to make her dad, mom, grandma and all of her family very proud. Continue to rest in peace Sean, and God Bless You.
