Reflections for Police Officer Tiffany Catherine Hickey

I never met you before. I see your face everyday I go to work though. I know you watch over us when we patrol the streets. I do know that you are loved and missed here. Keep us safe until we see you again.

Hey Sweet Tiff! I can't believe it's been 10 years since you were taken. I miss you and wish you were here, but I know God knows exactly what He is doing. I think about you all the time and tell of your stories. Love you!

I cannot believe it has now been 10 years. Not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. Just wanted you and your family to know that I have not forgotten and never will. It is amazing to think of all you would have accomplished if you were still on the streets. Keep your eyes on us all and watch over us as we continue to go out everyday.

Hey Tiffany,

I think about you everyday and today decided I needed to let you and your parents know how your loss has affected me. Not a day goes by that I think about what could have been. There is no doubt in my mind that you would have been an exceptional officer and would probably be a supervisor by now. I will always hold you and your family close to my heart. I miss you so much sweet angel.

Hey Tiff. We just buried another today. I'm sure you have already shown Norm the ropes up there. I can't believe that almost ten years have passed since we buried you. It seems like yesterday, no less painful today than ten years ago. I think about you and your parents and Chad daily. Thanks for always watching over us! Miss & Love you!

Tiffany,

I saw the memorial in the paper from your family yesterday. I did not know about this page until today. I read through the many reflections, and it is a testament to your life and relationship with Christ. I remember the desire you had on becoming a police officer. Your enthusiasm for this career and life was contagious. The life you led set an example for others. The love that you poured into others is obvious by the words that many have expressed about you on this page. You are missed!

To the Hickey family. I think of Tiff often, especially since my nephew serves on the Arlington PD with Chad.
I still remember fondly Tiff running down the soccer field with her pony tail swinging side to side.
I know you miss her deeply and my heart goes out to you. I did not have the opportunity to visit with you after the services and since we have moved to East Texas, don't get the opportunity of seeing any of you.
I will always fondly remember Tiff.
My prayers will be with you always.

You and I never met, but I new about you nine years ago. We began to walk the beat at the same age and in the same year. Although I've been with multiple agencies, I am still on the beat nine years later. My dear sister, not a moment has gone by that you have not been in may heart. Keep watching over us!

To Officer Hickey's family and friends

I wanted to be a police officer my entire life. I'm sure my family thought this was a childhood dream and like all kids, this would pass. I can remember being hired as a police officer and the excitement and then fear that sets in as the reality hits, "I am really a police officer." I can remember my first day at work and thinking that I was doing something I always wanted to do and these people (the city) are paying me to do this. I can remember standing in front of a mirror in my new uniform, tugging on my gear and checking out this new kid.

Those days were the most exciting days of my career. When
I see Tiffany's picture or name, I am reminded about how I felt as a new police officer. How Tiffany felt. I can assure you if she felt anything like I did, she was so excited she couldn't wait to get to work. She couldn't wait to tell her family and friend about what she saw or did today.

I can't image your loss. I can only hope that as police memorial week nears that you know that Tiffany in my heart. You are in my heart. Always in my heart.

Just letting you know that I was thinking about you again. I don't type these messages nearly as often as I should, but words cannot describe what is thought about each day. As always, I hope your family is doing ok. I know they miss you more than anyone can ever imagine.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

I come to the page almost every day and when I see new reflections posted, it reminds me that your life impacted lots of people but none as much as the lives of your family. We love you and miss you and live our lives honoring you.

Thinking about you tonight after seeing a news report on tv. I remember what a great softball catcher you were. I also remember that long braid of hair:)

Hey Tiffany,
I was sitting here thinking about life in general. I thought that I would drop by and leave you a note to let you know that you are still in my thoughts.

Tiffany,

I was just sitting here typing an arrest report at the police department and wanted to check in on you. I was just thinking about you and wanted to say hi.
