I pray for the family and officers who are left with the emptiness, frustration and surmounting grief of having someone taken from you so suddenly. God bless your family, it is bigger than you could imagine. In the wake of losing a dear friend and co-worker I come back to the ODMP to view the comforting words from people across this country. Sadly as I keep coming back I see more have gone on to God and I add another branch of the family to my prayers.

THE POLICEMAN'S LAST ROLL CALL ...

THE POLICEMAN STOOD AND FACED HIS GOD, WHICH MUST ALWAYS COME TO PASS. HE
HOPED HIS SHOES WERE SHINING, JUST AS BRIGHTLY AS HIS BRASS. "STEP FORWARD
NOW, POLICEMAN. HOW SHALL I DEAL WITH YOU? HAVE YOU ALWAYS TURNED THE OTHER
CHEEK? TO MY CHURCH HAVE YOU BEEN TRUE?"

THE POLICEMAN SQUARED his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a Saint. I've had to
work most Sundays, and at times my talk was rough, and sometimes I've been
violent because the streets are awfully tough. But I never took a penny that
wasn't mine to keep, though I worked a lot of overtime when the bills just
got to steep. And I never passed a cry for help, though times I shook with
fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept many unmanly tears. I know I
don't deserve a place among the people here, they never wanted me around
except to calm their fear. If you've a place for me Lord, it needn't be so
grand. I never expected or had too much, but if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne where the Saints had often trod. As
the policeman waited quietly, for the judgement of his God. "Step forward
now, policeman, you've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on Heaven's
streets, you've done your time in hell."

We have lost another Brother...
It never seems to stop...
each time I see a new name on this page...
I wonder... who will be next...?
The one thing we all know for sure
there will be another...
We just don’t know where, who or when...

To my brothers and sisters in the Dover Police Department,
To the Family and Friends of Police Officer Arthur Olsen
My deepest sympathy...

Rest in peace Brother...
You leave us with a reminder, Tomorrow is never guaranteed.
I post this in your Honor...

BLUE AUTUMN
By: Marc A. Turner-Copyright/2000


That day was like others nothing special at all
We passed one another said hi in the hall
We took it for granted that nothing would change
But then, time seemed to gel, it felt surely strange

Suddenly the news struck with lightening heat
Officer down, my heart skipped a beat
See we’re all brothers that hang from the same family tree
But today, it was your turn; your leaf was blown free

We finally break rank and most walk away
They turn to look back, just a few there still stay
The ones from your squad still stand by and stare
Not able to leave, a pain they all share

The crowd is all gone and the wind shakes the trees
The tears start to fall like the dry autumn leaves
Why was it you and not one of them?
A question they’ll ask again and again

So now when we see our brother go by
Why not take a second to say more than just hi
Tomorrow might be too late, don’t you seeWho’s leaf will be next… blown from the tree…?

Artie,
My thoughts and prayers go out to you, your
family and to the Dover PD. You were a cops cop.
God bless you.

May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
May the rain fall gently upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand
