Reflections for Sergeant Richard Eric Weinhold

Dear family and department we mourn with you on the lost of your officer. We never want to hear of another officer being pulled off of the "Thin Blue Line". Know that MOCOPS is here for you....

Missouri Concerns of Police Survivors

Rick was my friend and brother in Christ. I last spoke to him the day before the shooting. He taught me how a man could be gentle when dealing with people that have broken the law.
Rick worked secondary at Chuck E. Cheese's where I was the G.M. We dicussed books that we had been reading on how to be an HONORABLE MAN.
The house where Rick was shot is less than a mile from my home. I drive by it almost everyday. It reminds me that life is short and good friends are more precious than I can express in words.
I miss Rick and will use what he taught me in his honor.

Your sacrifice and that of your family will not ever be forgotten.


Rick was more than a Supervisor. He was a friend. I'll miss you Rick.


To all that read this, this officer gave the ultimate sacrifice. He was a fellow officer and one of my instructors while I attended the police academy. He deserved every award and was known for the great kindness he displayed to everyone. Along with thanking all military personnel that have given their lives to allow us to be free, I constantly take time to reflect on my fallen brothers, who have sacrificed their lives to protect others.
Be safe.
