Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Steven E. Cox

Deputy Cox, You will never be forgotten. Rest well, Brother. Thank you for your service.

Brother Cox, his family and King County Sheriff's Department... I feel like I have lost someone very close to me, although I never worked with Steve. I was working when the call came out. My heart began to sink as we were given updates. KCSO and Seattle PD are one in the same to me. The only difference is the color of uniform and administrators, that's it. Steve, I wish I could've been there for you and your brothers. You my friend are my hero, my 911. I will call upon you and others who have made the ultimate sacrifice, to give us who are left here some peace of mind, security and a reason to keep pushing on. I pray for you, your family and the KCSO. Please keep watch over us and we will meet someday.

“REMEMBER ME”
Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.

My thoughts are with your loved ones. I ask that the King County Sheriff's Department stay close to Deputy Cox's wife and children and not to forget his parents. Steve is a true hero and heroes never die, he will never be forgotten. Steve, wrap your wings around your loved ones and protect them as they have a long rough road ahead of them. Also, keep watch over those still out on patrol watching over the Thin Blue Line.

Once again I am disgusted to learn of another fallen officer. My thoughts and prayers go out to Deputy Cox's family and the KCSO. Deputy Cox is now in a much better place patrolling the streets of Heaven with my father (SPD-EOW-05/11/1995).

Brother,

You have not died in vane. Your shift is not over yet, you are still "10-8". Like Officer Beebe and those who have gone before him you will be called upon in the future to finish out your shift. Somewhere there will be an Officer/Deputy who is alone in pain and looking for someone to comfort him/her and to show them the way home. That is when you will be called upon to finish out your shift. Rest now brother, we will finish what you have started. To your child they should always know their DADDY will always be watching over them.
