Reflections for Police Officer Kenneth Chua Jordan

Ken, There are no words to help us as we deal with this tragedy. From the time we were in the Academy together till now, you always had a postive outlook on life. Thanks for being a friend and brother in blue. Your name, as with
J-Rod, will not be forgotten. Your service to our community and our department was honorable.

I am sorry we never got to do the motorcyle ride we had talked about. I promise I will do it and honor you.

May GOD Bless you and your family.

Rest in Peace my Brother, your duty on earth is over. I know Heaven is a safer place with you on patrol. Till we meet again, and walk the beat together. GOD SPEED....

Hero's never die; they just take on new assignments.

Although I did not know you, you were and still are my brother in law enforcement. I pray that God will be with you family and they will know his presence and feel some comfort. May God bless you and keep you in His care. May He wrap your family in His loving arms and give them comfort. You are a hero and will always be remembered. Go rest now, your brothers and sisters in blue will cover your shift.

Rest in peace, brother in blue.


The policeman stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry a badge
can't always be a saint."

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at time I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgement of his god.

"Step forward now, policeman,
You've born your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell"
