Reflections for Police Officer David Christopher Uribe


And if I go,
While you’re still here---
Know that I live on,
Vibrating to a different measure
--behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
So you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
--both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
…I will be there.

I am sure you remember when I was a rookie on your squad 93B and when we worked off duty a lot together. But you taught me a lot about being a street cop and those lessons are still being practiced everyday when I hit the streets as an Agent. I miss you my friend.

Officer Uribe,
I remember that awful day. It happened less than a half mile from my house. I pass it just about every day while working. I also remember you assisting my partner and I with an arrest. When I think of you, I think of a top-notch pro. Thank you, sir, for your service. May your family and co-workers find the strength they need. Rest in peace and enjoy your new beat, you've earned it.

To every day there is a season in time for every purpose under heaven. (Ecclesiastes Ch 3)

My dear brother in arms, Whoever did this can hide from others, but he can't hide from God. There will be judgement bestowed upon him in God's perfect timing.

You will be missed terribly.

I didn't know Officer Uribe, but I somehow feel like I did after hearing so much about him....Just a great guy and great officer. One of the best stories I've ever read was published in the Phoenix New Times, a weekly paper. It described this officer's assassination and was very respectful to him and his family.

I followed the news in regards to your Husband David Uribe and felt great sorrow for your loss and the loss to our state. I want to thank you for your concern for my Family and the flowers and kind words that were sent to us during the last couple of weeks. I am so sorry for your loss and pray that God will help us both to cope with these tragedies. God bless you,

At the beginning of every shift, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer.

Tonight, May 10, 2006 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Police Officer David Christopher Uribe who died in the line of duty on this date one year ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Officer Uribe’s sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Thinking of you and your family today.


May 10, 2006

I salute you for your dedicated service to law enforcement. You are a true hero and will never be forgotten. Keep watch over your loved ones. Also, keep watch over those still out on patrol. I also hope that the Phoenix PD stays close to your family and is always there for them in the future. They should also never forget your parents as there is no greater loss than losing a child, no matter how old that child may be. You will never be forgotten.

To the family of Officer Uribe:
I will be thinking about Officer Uribe's sacrifice one year ago today. He had a long career serving the citizens of your community and it is so tragic that it would end in such a senseless manner. I know that my family members in Phoenix were kept safer because of him.

May you continue to have strength as you continue to move forward through your loss.

Officer Uribe, your watch was ended 3 days before I graduated the police academy. I can only hope to have a career as long and glorious as yours. May you never be forgotten and may you rest in peace.

Wow, ive never wrote on here before but im looking at how much people appreciate our officers, im studying right now and yes im scared to encounter death but at the same time I look at how much officers are appreciated and how much they help the community that I want to be there too not to be known by people or have that nice badge but to know that at least the one person that I pulled over or that one dad that had to go to jail for one night wont be harming or putting at risk other peoples lives. And knowing that youll risk yours to save theirs, now that is something that just makes your skin with goosebumps, Officer Uribe I even though I never got to know you I want to say I appreciate you and respect you.

February 9, 2006

Last night I was reading about you in a magazine, and I started thinking about everything. I never knew you, and I wish I did. I wanted to let you know that I appreciate everything that you have done for us, and I will never forget you. Thanks so much, sir.

I stopped by the scene today. I thought I was going to pass out when I realized I had driven there... I didn't know if I could stop but I did... I cried as I looked at the street you last walked on. I went to the door of the house where they set up your memorial site to thank them for allowing so many to mourn on their front lawn. The husband hugged me and shed tears as he too remembered that day. He said he and his wife thank you for all you did and they thanked Adam for continuing the fight out there. I didn't know what else to say but thank you to them. Before I got into the car I looked one more time and I said we love you dad and miss you so much. Afterwards I called Aisy and cried while trying to calm myself so I could drive home. These past holidays were hard without you around. It is scary to believe that in 4 months it will be a year. It still feels like yesterday Adam called me. Give us strength to keep going dad. We miss you.
