Reflections for Sergeant James Victor Arnaud

I had the privelage of meeting Jim on the day after he graduated from the Academy and becaome his FTO, There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I remeber the last time I spoke with him at the coffee maker and the I cannot be in the District Court Controlroom without memorys of Jim flooding in. God be with you.

The credit union was where I met you and your grandson's like countwork every other week. The credit union was where we talked about family, work,cars, and fleet. The credit union is where everyones financial dreams come true. The credit union for me now is a bitter sweet place, where I once looked forward to hearing this loud and clear voice vibrating in the air, to realizing the credit union line will be shorter beacause once a good friend stood there. God bless you James

Jim will be in my prayers. His family, friends and co-workers should take some measure of comfort in the knowledge that he gave his community all he had.

Yet another hero has left us....rest in peace my brother, your memory will never be forgotten.

Montgomery County Police, MD

As I move into my own law enforcement career, I'm continuously reminded of just how inherently dangerous the duty is. However, I continue to move forward, as you did, accepting the danger because we feel drawn to the duty. May God send his guardian angels to ease the suffering of your family and grant them peace. For now, rest easy brother - we'll continue the watch for you.

My prayers are with your entire family. I had a family member killed in the line of duty last November. Even though you are going through this grief, it will be comforting to know that the support of the community and fellow police officers will help you through it all.

May God Bless you and your family.

My sincere condolence is extended to officer Amaud's family,friends and the Prince George's County Sheriff's Department.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Officer Arnaud, you have a long road ahead of you. I am not too far ahead of you on this road, as I lost my husband in the line of duty, to gunfire last year. Just know that God is with you in every step you take and will always be there for you! Make good use of your support groups offered in your area, and know that you are not alone in your battle.

Officer Arnaud: I salute you and thank you for your faithfulness and dedication to duty and for the supreme sacrifice made by you in the defense of our nation. May this tragedy serve to remind all my brothers and sisters of the "Thin Blue Line" for the need of our coming together and uniting ourselves that the world may see we are truly one..irregardless of our place of duty be it Federal, State, County, City, Town..and that we will take care of each other come what may. God's Love and Peace be upon your loved ones.

Arnaud, I can't believe this has happened. I seen you almost every day coming to the with court returns or your in county transports that ended up being the whole DC metro area transports. We used to laugh about you being the whole transport unit for that night.
Then that night in the Intake Trailer with the Air Conditioner incident. You didnt say anything you just laughed and we walked the inmates in. When you left you still didn't say a thing because you knew I was ticked.
Thanks for all the talks we had about badges and patches we had traded. See you in the future.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We lost a loved on in the line of duty. We know what great pride and tremendous sorrow you feel. Stay strong.

My thoughts and prayers are with every one of my previous co-workers and Cpl. Arnaud's family during this tragedy. While I didn't have many dealings with Cpl. Arnaud during my years at the Sheriff's Office, I know that each member was a family member to all those within the office as well as the law enforcement field. God bless Cpl. Arnaud, Pvt. Magruder and all of us.
