Reflections for Captain Robbie Edward Bishop

Your police work was inspiring and your interdiction efforts have spread across the nation. What one single man can do should keep the rest of us trying to be like you. Anyone who has ever done any interdiction knows the name Robbie Bishop. My condolences to your family and until you all meet again, rest in peace.

I must say that the day I heard of your passing I was excited and happy.I walked around with a huge smile on my face. Yes Robbie Bishop,you had busted me. For many years I spent doing time in a GA prison. But it was none of your doing;it was mine.That was me being immature.

Since my release my life has taken a 180.Since becoming a father of two kids I have come realize your value to the world. The thing which I once held in high honor,I now hate with paasion. You made the streets safe for many familes. I wish life would of given me a diffrent route but for what you did that day, it made me the man I am today.
May you R.I.P. and be sure that many others such as yourself are guarding the streets. Rest now your duty here is done. Thanks for changing my life.May God watch over your family.

You are and forever will be a hero to me. It seems like only yesterday. Words cannot describe what you meant to me and the thousands of other officers in this world. Words definately cannot describe the hole left in the hearts of all of us.

Eight years later, and his legacy continues on, and ALWAYS will. Thankfully, he is in a place where his loved may be reunited with him one day.

Just wanted to leave a note and tell you how much i miss you. We had some good times in High School and even when we were in the Fire Dept Together in Dalton. I remember us getting to fires and working side by side. You were my best friend in high school and when i went in the navy and you went in the marines we kinda lost touch but i cherished our friendship. Your an inspiration to all that knew you.

God Bless

It's been 7 years and I still can't come up with the words to say how much you are missed. Truly the best friend I will ever have. I remember how much with both hated drugs and I just want to thank you for the courage you had to continue to fight them. If only I could get my sons to understand. I know if I could talk to you now. You are missed.

To the family of Captain Bishop. I just wanted to let you know that Captain Bishop is still an inspiration to those in the pursuit of stopping drugs.

I just learned of him in a drug interdiction class and found this memorial page. It appears that he has left quite a legacy that will inspire officers for many years to come.

Rest in peace.

I am so sorry, I just found this site. I am the paramedic that was dispatched and carried for Robbie until we got him to the hospital in Bremen. I will never forget that day. My prayers and thoughts are with Robbie's family each and every day. GOD BLESS ALL PUBLIC SERVANT EMPLOYEES!!!

Robbie: As I stood in the cemetery with hundreds of officers last Monday, I was thinking of you.

I'm sure you've met "Step" Stepnowski by now:). His watch ended here on Thursday, 29 June 2006.

His homegoing service brought back memories of the day we all said "Goodbye" to you.

I always ask the new officers I meet, "Did you know Robbie Bishop?"

Most of them smile and say "Yes."

A few get tears in their eyes and say, "I was there."

You will never be forgotten, my friend.

Brother, a person could not say enough about what your legacy has left Law Enforcement Officers around the world. I heard your name for the first time during a class that was taught by Chief Eddie Ingram. Since then I have observed the impact that you have left on every persons life that fights the war on drugs. I want to say, "Thank you for everything that you shared with other officers that has been passed off to me." To your family I would like to say, "Thank you for allowing this Officer to be what he was and for the support that you gave." Brother, you will never be forgotten...

God Bless,

Even though Captain Robbie Bishop is gone, to me he is a monumental pillar on the fight and pursuit to stop the war on drugs. I hope to become a police officer and when I do I hope that I can even be close to being a great officer such as Robbie was. Even though I do not have a clue who this man was, I know what he accomplished as a police officer. In my opinion he was one of the best. The war on drugs grows greater everyday and it is up to people like Captain Robbie Bishop to end the war on drugs. He may be gone but he is surely not forgotten

Still thinking of you daily my brother. Thank you for all you taught me. There will never be another. You changed my life for the better. Thank you for helping keep my family safe. Rest well.

I was at your father's funeral. It was overwhelming to never see the beginning or the end of the procession of officers from all over the country to pay respects to the greatest interdiction officer ever. Hearing that your father accepted Christ as his Lord just months prior to death brought relief and joy to my soul and I hope you will follow his example. His testimony at his funeral affected many souls for eternity. My hope is that you can find peace in that.

I have strived to be a good officer in my short time here and when I get down on myself I remember why I do the work I do. You inspired me from the first time that I saw your video in mandate and even tell to today. I wish I could have met and learned from you. I have however learned from legacy and skills. May God be with your family as you stand with him in unwavering strenght and honor. God bless you and those like you who gave all they had to give.

I saw a video of Robbie and really felt like I was watching a real life superhero. I went to some classes held by your previous co-workers and began to make drug arrest after drug arrest none as large as you but I never would have made any if I had not heard of you. Anyhow I went to pick my mom up in Atlanta and stopped by your marker on the highway. My first stop after returning to work I hit a Meth-lab (Thanks Robbie). Though I will never use it like you I will carry your dropped sword.

It's now May 2006; Just wanted to let you know that we're still kicking criminal butts. We've trained more than 5,000 interdiction officers nationwide since your death who combined have seized more than $45 million in illegal drug money and untold millions in drugs.

Robbie, even today you still motivate me and hundreds more. There isn't a day that goes by that you don't cross my mind. Partner, you were the match that lit the fuse. Not only for me, but for hundreds more. You had more of an impact on law enforcement than anyone I know or have ever known. We sure had some fun didn't we?

RIP - Miss you brother, Eddie Ingram
