Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Shane Allen Britton

Shane was a great person. He had a passion for everything that he did. I did not know him as well as some of the other guys did, but I know that Shane was a man that many looked up to as a person, as a father, a husband, and as a deputy. I know that Shane is with God now and that he watches over all of us.

Shane was a friend and a co-worker. He was not only there for me at work, but for my family. When my Mom fell and broke her ribs he was one of several who came and calmed her down til myself and my newphew could arrive. He & his family will always be remembered in our hearts and prayers.

I worked with Shane as A reserve, but as Traci stated, he did not treat you any different then he would a full time deputy.  I spent many hours in a squad with Shane. We talked about everything. I know that Shane love his job and most of all his family.  Shane will always be a mentor to me, I will miss his quizes and challenges that he would give me to prepare for oral boards. I only hope that I can become half the officer that Shane was. I will always rememberShane as a friend, mentor,and my first partner.

As being an Officer of a neighboring department, I had the honor of having Deputy Britton as back-up on many occasions.  He was truly an outstanding officer as well as an outstanding citizen.

The heart of our department goes out to Shane and his family as well as the Cass County Sheriffs Department as they lost a great Deputy as well as a part of their family.

Shane was an officer like none I had ever met before.  As a former reserve officer, he knew how valuable they are.  As a reserve myself, Shane never treated me as one.  I was always his partner.  I knew what he was thinking and what we would do next.  He always listened to and even accepted some of my ideas on ways to handle situations.  We had a relationship like any full-time partners would have.  He even wrote a glowing recommendation letter for me.  He was a man who enjoyed doing for others.  Shane continued to always teach me new things to help me become a better police officer.  I only hope that I can take what he has taught me and become even half the officer he was and could have been.  He will always be in my heart as a friend and he will forever be my partner.
