Reflections for Police Officer Lisa Renee Ligda-Beaulieu

My condolences go out to the family of Officer Beaulieu. I am so sorry for your loss. I pray that her fellow officers can find comfort in their time of grief. May God be with you.

Thank you to Lisa for choosing a profession of protection. She chose to make a difference. She chose to step forward and risk her life so others may be safe.

I hope her killer feels the weight of what he stole from this world.. someday.

To the parents of Officer Beaulieu: There are no words at a time like this. Just know that many, many people care about what happened to your daughter and the grief you are suffering. My son was killed last August by a hit and run driver who was most likely impaired, so I have some idea of what you are going through. You are in my thoughts.

"When God Made Peace Officers"
Unknown Author
When the Lord was creating peace officers, he was into his sixth day of overtime when an angel appeared and said, "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one"

And the Lord said, "Have you read the spec on this order?" A peace officer has to be able to run five miles through alleys in the dark, scale walls, enter homes the health inspector wouldn't touch, and not wrinkle his uniform."

He has to be able to sit in an undercover car all day on a stakeout, cover a homicide scene that night, canvass the neighborhood for witnesses and testify in court the next day."

He has to be in top physical condition at all times, running on black coffee and half-eaten meals. And he has to have six pairs of hands."

The angel shook her head slowly and said, "Six pairs of way."

"It's not the hands that are causing me problems." said the Lord, "It's the three pairs of eyes an officer has to have."

"That's on the standard model?" asked the angel.

The Lord nodded. "One pair that sees through the bulge in a pocket before he asks, 'May I see what's in there sir?' (When he already knows and wishes he'd taken that accounting job.) Another pair here in the side of the head for his partner's safety. And another pair of eyes here in the front that can look reassuringly at a bleeding victim and say. 'You'll be all right ma'am.' When he knows it isn't so."

"Lord," said the angel, touching his sleeve, "rest and work on this tomorrow."

"I can't" said the Lord, "I already have a model that can talk a 250 pound drunk into a patrol car without incident, and feed a family of five on a civil service pay check."

The angel circled the model of the peace officer very slowly. "Can it think?" she asked.

"You bet." said the Lord. "It can tell you the elements of a hundred crime scenes; recite Miranda warnings in his sleep; detain, investigate, search, and arrest a gang member on the street in less time than it takes five learned judges to debate the legality of the stop...and still keeps its sense of humor."

"This officer also has phenomenal personal control. He can deal with crime scenes painted in hell; coax a confession from a child abuser; comfort a murder victim's family; and then read in the daily paper how law enforcement isn't sensitive to the rights of criminal suspects."

Finally, the angel bent over and ran her fingers across the cheek of the peace officer. "There's a leak." She pronounced. "I told you that you are trying to put to much in this model."
"That's not a leak," said the Lord, "it's a tear."
"What's the tear for?" asked the angel.
"It's for bottled-up emotions; for fallen comrades; for commitment to that funny piece of metal called his badge; for justice."
"You're a genius." said the angel.
The Lord looked somber. "I didn't put it there." he said.
To all who knew PO Beaulieu, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Right now words don't seem to be enough of what we all feel when we lose any law enforcement, fire fighter, or any other person in that type of occupation.

You were a great friend, and you are already greatly missed. I will always remember your smile and your laugh. I miss the laughs we had in the classes we had to take, and the PT in academy. You were a wonderful person that will never be forgotten.

The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want,
His comforting hand reduces fear to naught;
He makes me walk through streets of crime,
But He gives me courage and peace of mind

He leads me by still waters in the path I trod,
And He says in Romans, I’m a “minister of God,”
He leads me in righteousness as He restores my soul,
For His name’s sake He keeps me whole.

When I walk through death’s valley, right up to the door,
I will fear no evil, for He comforts me more;
For Thou art with me every step of the way,
As thy rod and thy staff protect me each day.

He prepares a table, especially for me,
As I work daily among life’s enemies;
He gives me authority to uphold the law,
And He anoints my position in the midst of it all.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me,
Each day of my life through eternity;
As I long to hear Him say, “Well done…”
When I lay down my life, my badge, and my gun.

Rest in Peace, Sister…

My son was also killed by a drunk driver while he was on patrol so I know what the Beaulieu family is presently expereiencing and what they will face in the future. I ask that her brothers and sisters in blue stay close to her loved ones and be there for them. Lisa is a true hero and will never be forgotten. Lisa, wrap your wings around your loved ones and help them with their grief and guide and protect them as they journey through life. You will not be forgotten.

"My Sister"

Although I never met her, I knew her.
She was idealistic and believed she could make a difference.
She was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
She felt privileged to be of service to her department, her community and to her country.

She was a cop.

Although I never met her, I knew her.
She was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
She laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
She was competent, trained, and professional.

She was a cop.

Although I never met her, I knew her.
She had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
She felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but she never wavered.
She stood by and for her fellow officers.

She was a cop.

Although I never met her, I knew her.
She longed for her family during the long hours.
She worried about them during her shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
She felt guilty about the lost time, but knew her calling
and prayed they would understand.

She was a cop.

Although I never met her, I knew her.
She was a good daughter, a loving wife, and a devoted mother.
She was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people she served.
She wanted to do the best job that she could and strived to be the best she could be.
She was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

She was a cop.

Yes, I did know her.
She was a cop, she was my Sister.

Rest easy Sister Beaulieu, we have the watch...

"I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me."
---Isaiah 6:8

You answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy in God's kingdom and watch over us as we continue the battle here on earth!!!

We are never prepared for the loss of a loved one, but God is always prepared to help us through that loss. May His presence begin the healing in your heart and soul, and may His love surround you with the comfort only He can give.

Thank you for your unselfish service to others. You will never be forgotten. May you rest in peace.

First I am so sorry for this tremendous loss. The drunk driver should never see the light of day again and should have posted on his jail cell wall all the names of the Brave Officers that have been killed in the line of duty by a drunk person or one on drugs. This death is unforgiveable. My heart goes out to her family.

Our department sends it's deepest condolences to her, the department and her family. It's a shame that an office has to die in any way, but this has to be one of the biggest wastes of an officer's life there is...
