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.

Hey Tiff. Well, I'm about to head back out to DC for memorial week. I still think about you daily. Thanks for watching over us and keeping us safe.

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.

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.

To the Family of Officer Tiffany Hickey,
Your loss is our loss! We are now bound as family until the Lord returns. I pray for you that you will continue to have the strength to do the Lord's ministry of being there for other families who experience similar situations. It was an honor and privilege to meet you. I pray that your son will rise to the highest calling of being a true public SERVANT that you, he himself and the community of Arlington will be proud of! God Bless You and Yours till he returns and we will all rejoice together at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ!

It's been eight years today since you left us. We still hear from many of your friends and see posts on this page from many who knew you and some that didn't. You made a difference in so many lives.

May your smile light up heaven as it lit up earth.May He bless you and your loved ones.

I am on my way to work today. As usual, I will clock in and look at your picture on the wall as I start my shift. You keep my mind in the right place everyday. I am more mentally prepared and am concious of what could happen at any given minute. It's sad that a lot of police don't have that frame of mind. You are so much missed by your family and all in Cockrell Hill. You have a positive direct impact on all that serve, especially in Cockrell Hill. Nothing is as important as one's life and well being, and I wish people in the city could make that a priority.

Hey Tiff. Spoke with your dad yesterday. It sounds like your family is doing okay. I got all the updates on Chad and all the work your parents are doing with police survivors. I was telling your dad about this very vivid dream I had about you a couple of weeks ago. You were talking to me just like we used to and everything was okay. Like Karen, I think about you every day. I bet all our classmates and academy staff do. We all miss you! Anyway, I am expecting a baby in September. I wish you could meet him or her. Take care of us!

Well it is getting near the time we do the memorial ride with your mom and dad. I can not beleive how strong they are, we have a daughter that we love very much along with two sons, I do not know if we could be as strong in our faith as your mom and dad are if we lost one of our children, I know you watch over them every day and see thier pain. I want you to know that you are missed and loved by so many people, me included, you were always a bright spot when you rode with us. I will continue to do the memorial ride as long as the good Lord allows me and will never forget you. Your mom and dad and brother are very special people and it has been my pleasure to call them friends. Watch over us.
