Reflections for Police Officer Bryan Scott Hurst

Brian was an amazing Officer and person. I worked FCCS and he came out on a few cases with me. I can’t believe it’s been so long …..

I can’t believe how long it’s been, Gump.
I made it a point to read the poem about you at 12 sub. How many runs together? Hundreds? You are missed.

I met Officer Hurst on the last week of December 2004 while I was working a Loss Prevention job. He seemed like a really great guy and a good officer. A week later was the incident at the bank. Officer Hurst’s actions on that day protected a lot of people. He is a true hero!

We will never forget you Officer Hurst.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice!

We were recently planning a Kaneohe Bay Marine Corps reunion of all the dog handlers. It's crazy how the years have passed but our memory of you have not. When we do have the reunion, know there will be a place at our table for you brother. You are missed.

I still have my tablet where you put your info. for court on an arrest we both had. It was just yesterday that you had the entire (CPD 95th Class), literally in tears with your antics in class.

Who ever would have thought you'd bring us all to tears years later.

Till we meet again, bruddah.

I can’t believehow the years have flown by since your EOW. I continue to honor you as a hero and hold you and all the memories close to my heart. Gone but never forgotten Bryan. All the things from Police Week in DC are still in my car. You would be so proud of Malia. She is just beautiful and smart and talented. I know you cheered in heaven when your Buckeyes won the Rose Bowl. Continue to watch over us down here. I also pray for all those who continue to mourn your loss. Love and hugs to you.

Supporting the procession through Westerville brought back so many memories of the day you saved my life. I know you are with the two police officers in a heavenly place. I will never ever stop thinking about what you did for us! I wish we had a different outcome. I pray that these people understand that we need the police and they are great people.
Praying for all of your brothers and sisters in blue this week!
