Reflections for Police Officer Kyle Russell Ballard

My deepest sympathy to the family, friends and co-workers of Officer Kyle Ballard; may he rest in peace.

I didn't know Kyle well as I was just "passing though" his life but I looked forward to seeing him in my classes and greatly appreciated his ready sense of humor.

Words cannot express the sorrow I feel for his wife and children, they bear a burden in his untimely passing that the rest of us will never truly understand.

Now he belongs to the ages and has all the answers to all of human kinds questions. And he awaits our arrival to brief us on our next Tour of Duty.

God Bless Kyle and his loved ones.

Kyle, you were a true warrior. Cops like you are far, few and in between. Anyone that knew you could attest to that. I dont know why you were taken so soon. Maybe the man upstairs decided he needed you on his force. Rest in peace brother, you will always be remebered and we will continue to fight crime as passionately as you did...

Our Hero Of Blue
This is dedicated to all Police Officers and Families

The Wife of a Baltimore City Police Officer

Our hero of blue has fallen
A time of peace is calling
For you to go with God above
He'll give you wings of blue with love
To send a message for everyone
To remember a life and what was done
A dream fulfilled of our angel of blue
We honor you for the job you swore to do
A promise was kept from a hero like you
You put your life on the line each day
To protect and serve in everyway
And to give you thanks we will do our part
To share your message and to keep you in our heart

For those who did not know Kyle, I thought I would share a little info. Kyle was a dedicated family man with a wife he adored and three young sons that meant the world to him. While not with his family, Kyle was giving 100 percent to his second family, the Pasadena Police Department. Kyle served as a patrol officer, worked four years in the Special Enforcement Section (working gangs, street narcotics, and as a member of the tactical team), and on the LA Impact gang task force. Kyle recently returned to patrol, where he was accepted as Field Traininig Officer and was due to attend FTO School in April of this year. Kyle was an example to all of us in his dedication to his family, his career serving the community of Pasadena, and to his friends. He touched many of us at the department and he will be missed greatly. We will always love and you we will never forget. We will make sure your sons know what a great man you were. Your friend, Buzz

"I am the Officer"

I have been where you fear to be,
I have seen what you fear to see,
I have done what you fear to do -
All these things I have done for you.

I am the person you lean upon,
The one you cast your scorn upon,
The one you bring your troubles to -
All these people I've been for you.

The one you ask to stand apart,
The one you feel should have no heart,
The one you call "The Officer in Blue,"
But I'm just a person, just like you.

And through the years I've come to see,
That I am not always what you ask of me;
So, take this badge ... take this gun ...
Will you take it ... will anyone?

And when you watch a person die
And hear a battered baby cry,
Then do you think that you can be
All these things you ask of me?

Kyle is my cousin who is loved very deeply by me and my family. He was a wonderful father, husband, and officer. I take comfort in the support given by the Pasadena Police Department. God just doesn't make many people like Kyle. I love you.
