Reflections for Captain Robbie Edward Bishop

Robbie: You're missed and loved by so many.

What a blessing your life on earth was to all (except the bad guys) who knew you!

Yesterday I was thinking of you but I wasn't able to get to a computer.

The war against drugs continues, my friend.

You are missed but not forgotten.
We will not forget all that you sacrificed in doing the job and passing along knowledge to others so we may continue the fight. We will not forget the unselfish sacrifice that your family (Lisa, Cody, and Lauren) has made in supporting you in the performance of your duty.
Rest easy and be with us in spirit as your family and friends continue the fight.

I never had the opportunity to know Robbie Bishop until attending a Narcotics Interdiction School here in CT in 2005. Our instructor; retired FHP Trooper spoke highly of Capt. Bishop and prompted me to learn more about this icon in law enforcement. Capt. Bishop's loyalty to this profession and his department are a testimonial to the type of person Robbie was. I attend the National Law Enforcement Officer's Memorial every year and intend to pay Capt. Bishop the respect deserved on my next trip. My blessings to Capt. Bishop's co-workers at Villa Rica PD and family. God bless you all.

Capt. Bishop was and still is an inspiration for every drug arrest I make. I admire him for the officer that he was and how he wanted all officers to be better at drug interdiction. He is missed by all his brothers and sisters inside the thin blue line. Let's all be carefull out there and remember Capt. Bishops greatest sacrifice. We will meet one day my BROTHER. God bless, Officer Robby Raines, Pickens City P.D.

Robbie, we are all still thinking of you. Maybe me more than most right now. I think you were out there with me on Saturday. I was able to stand my ground and shoot straight. Some think I'm a hero but I think I had help. You are still my hero. See you out there buddy.

The skills and drive you taught are still being passed on. May you rest in peace and may your family forever be watched over.

August 20, 2005

Although I did not know Robbie well, he continues to influence my life and the life of my children. My children still speak fondly of Robbie and his family. A little bird given to my children by a family member sits on my mantle to this day as a reminder of a powerful influence.
I now have a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and would like to let Robbie's family know that his death was an influence in my decision to obtain my degree and enter the field of law enforcement.

In 1996, I attended an interdiction class that Robbie taught in Northern Ohio. I was impressed by his knowledge and dedication to the job, but even more so by the fact that he was obviously a family man. His wife and small children were present with him on that trip, and he made sure to introduce them to all of us.

Robbie obviously meant a lot to all of us in the profession, but he meant even more to his family, as shown by the reflection left by Cody Bishop.

A great example for us all.

I can remember being a kid in high school and Captain Bishop came to the school with K-9 Larry and a brown Mustang. His stories, videos and experience made me decide then and there that I was definitely going to be a cop and I spent several years preparing myself for it. I am now approaching ten years in the field and have loved every minute of it (well, almost every minute). To Cody and the rest of Captain Bishop's family, always remember that the Captain is still an influence on the law enforcement field. His untimely death was a disaster to us all, but it did not take away the legacy he left through his training classes and inspiration to officers like me. Be very proud.

Well it has been 6 years now that we lost you, I just wanted to say that you are still thought of everday and missed dearly. I know you are watching over all of us. I still keep you and your family in my prayers. God Bless.
