It is with heartfelt sympathy and condolences that I leave a reflection for Officer Hurst. My prayer was that there would be no officers killed in the line of duty this year. Officer Hurst, rest in peace. Thank you for your courage and serving selflessly on the thin blue line. May God's peace be with your family and co-workers.

To the family, friends and co-workers my prayers are with you. There isn't much anyone can say at this time that will help, I wish there was.
The one thing that help me was knowing that Clint loved being a police officer and would not have traded places with anyone. I bet Officer Hurst loved being an officer also.
Officer Hurst your family will miss you everyday, but we will never forget you. Look Clint up for me tell him I miss and think about him all the time.....

It's a shame that we've lost two good Columbus officers in the last 2 months, not to mention my good friend Deputy Brandy Winfield of Marion last October.

May God be with your family, Officer Hurst. Your job is done, please rest in peace and look over us every now and then.

For Officer Hurst's Family and Co-workers

Your tragedy I read about today
I wish I could take your pain away
This is, however, out of my reach
So, to God above I do beseech
For your peace to return soon
and calm your soul as a tranquil tune
Though missed most by you, there
Missed also by those in blue everywhere

Officer Hurst thanks for your duty here
Thanks for showing courage and not fear
Knowing what the risks were
You didn't back down or defer
You fulfilled a tough role
And taken the ultimate toll
Be at peace now where you are
We'll take it from here and not be far
