Deputy Steve Cox,

You are a man who will never be forgotten! I feel immense sadness for what has happened to you and I pray that your wife and child are able to find comfort in knowing you are now one of Gods Angels.

You certainly made a difference while you were here with us! You served your community above and beyond the call of duty, devoted your life to making positive changes and improved the quality of life for those around you.

God rest your beautiful soul and please watch over and protect all the other officers that serve and protect their community.

Thank you for your service and may you rest in peace.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, WHEN I HANG UP THE UNIFORM AND LEARN THAT A FELLOW L.E.O. DID NOT HAVE THE SAME OPPORTUNITY, TO LOVE HIS FAMILY ONE MORE DAY, TO JOKE WITH THE GUY'S AFTER THE SHIFT, TO DO WHATEVER IT WAS THAT HE FOUND ENJOYMENT IN OUTSIDE OF THE SERVICE HE GAVE EVERYDAY. ALL BECAUSE OF NOTHING MORE THAN A SELFISH INDIVIDUAL WITH A MORE IMPORTANT AGENDA THAN GOING TO JAIL. NOTHING CAN BE SAID TO EASE THE PAIN OF THOSE WHO WILL BE WITHOUT THE HUSBAND, FATHER AND FRIEND THAT WAS DEPUTY STEVE COX. REST IN PEACE. ALWAYS TO BE REMEMBERED.

I've have known Steve the entire time he worked for our department. Steve and I worked the same area for many years. He was among the hardest working cops I have ever known. He will be greatly missed, he truly made the world a better place in his fight against crime. You and your family will be in your thoughts and prayers. God bless.

Deputy Cox, Just after six this morning, I got a call at my home from dispatch to go out on a Police assist in White Center. I thought no big deal just a mile from my home, I'll be there and back in just a few minutes. As I humg up the phone and prepared to leave, the news about the shooting came on and my heart sank, I just knew it was the same call. I remembered all the times you had called me for assistance and I had called you. I remembered you always had a smile on your face and respected the job that we do in Animal Control when so few do. The only way I got through the day was to keep myself so busy I did not have time to think about what happened. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with your family and fellow officers. Rest easy knowing that you gave your all to the citizens of King County and we all thank you with all our hearts...

Deputy Steve,
Reading reflections such as the ones that have been left make me regret never having known a hero like you. Thank you so much for your faithful service and your ultimate sacrifice. You will not be forgotten any time soon, that is a promise. To the Officer who got the shooter, thank you so very much. To the family of Deputy Cox, my sympathies and prayers go out to you. To KCSO, know that you are appreciated and prayed for and that your labors are not in vain - Romans 13:4!

I drove past the memorial for Deputy Cox tonight after returning from a class in Seattle. The moment I saw all of the flowers and a Tacoma PD officer guarding the memorial, the harsh reality of the situation hit me. Another officer has been taken from us.

My deepest sympathies go out to the King County Sheriff's Department and the family of Deputy Cox. A childhood friend of mine lost a fellow officer with the Des Moines PD and yet another friend who is detective with the Seattle PD lost an officer a few weeks ago.

We here at the Canon City Internet Radio are sadden to see and hear of another officer that has been killed in the line of duty. We did not know this officer but we do share in the grief that will become harder in the next few days.
"A Part Of America Died,"
Somebody killed a policeman today,
And part of America died.
A piece of our country he swore to protect,
Will be buried with him at his side.
The suspect that shot him will stand up in court,
With counsel demanding his rights.
While a young widowed mother must work for her kids,
And spend many long lonely nights.
The beat he walked was a battle field too
just as if he had gone off to war.
Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half mast,
To his name they will add a gold star.
Yes, somebody killed a policeman today,
In your town or mine,
While we slept in comfort behind locked doors,
A cop put his life on the line.
Now his ghost walks a beat on a dark city street,
And stands at each new rookies' side.
He answered the call,of himself and gave his all,
And a part of America died.
We will keep all of you in our prayers and thoughts because your pain is our pain.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL....YOU HAVE NOT DIED IN VAIN.....YOU ARE ALL HEROES.

The community has lost a true hero. Deputy Cox personified community policing. He took ownership of his district and worked with the community to resolve crime issues and empower the residents to feel safe. He worked closely with WA DOC. He was also an outstanding member of the Seattle Weed and Seed Executive Board. Deputy Cox was also a friend.
