Officer Bowser -
As I read the story of how you passed away I felt a bond with you. Just as you were a member of the Emergency Response Team, I am a member of my Department's Tactical Support Unit. I pray that God keeps you in his hands and watches over your loved ones, as I know that you watch over your brother and sister Officers.
Rest in peace Tac Warrior.

On this sixth anniversary of your being taken from us due to a tragic accident, you are remebered for your service. I know you were training to provide aid to fellow Officers when the need arose. For that you are a true hero! Rest in peace, my brother, we have the watch now.

The Correctional Officers Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage...
Courage to face and conquer my own fears.
Courage to take me where others will not go.

I ask for strength...
Strength of body to protect others.
Strength of spirit to lead others.

I ask for dedication...
Dedication to my job, to do well.
Dedication to my community, to keep it safe.

Give me, Lord, concern for all those who trust me.
and compassion for those who need me.

And, please Lord, through it all
watch over me and keep me true.
