Reflections for Deputy Sheriff Joshua Everett Norris

I remember seeing you on television when I was in my early twenties. I was inspired by your determination and love being a great peace officer that I became one myself. Sad to know you left us so soon. My condolences to your family. Rest easy, brother.

I've recently watched your episode on "Rookies" and would like to thank you for your service. I will be attending the academy later next year after college and I just would like you to know that I will be thinking about you . You were cut down too soon. You may be gone but your service will never be forgotten. RIP.

Hi Josh,

Just checking in with you again. Our world is still in a crazy state right now. I’m coming up on 11 years with my department in June. I can’t believe it’s been that long since your rookies show originally aired. My heart still goes out to your family; I hope they have found some peace. Rest In Peace my brother. You have not been forgotten.

10 years ago I got to spend your last Christmas with us... it was a much happier time without knowing it was our last one together. Every Christmas since has been so hard with you not here. I miss your laughter, your smile, your smell, your hugs, your love...I MISS YOU.!
If I could build a stairway to Heaven, I would. Just so I could have it all back...even for a little while.
I wish you were still here with us in the flesh, but I know you are in spirit. I love you with every breath I take and miss you with every heartbeat. Until we can be reunited...
Forever in my dreams...
Love, Mom

It is a sad day when young men are raised with no values to prevent them from killing an inocent man who was,just doing what he was created to do serve and protect. As soon as all of us do the things I know he had talked about many times like, a global curriculum, strengthen our military,raise salaries for law enforcement, hard harsh punishment for violence against women and children,raise teachers salaries,give our vets a million dollars, give over 65 a million dollars, follow a plan to clean our oceans, insure animal rights, pay our farmers a premium price to plant a profitable crop, create jobs, allow kids to pray in school and pay them when they graduate, offer the unimployed a opportunity to pray for pay, secure firearms and train all gun owners at an armory for each municipality and provide new firearms, and much more. Thank you officer. We will have to wait for another one of Gods sons to finish your work.

My days are empty without you here... I know you have Duke and friends keeping you company. Keep watch over everyone, but especially your brothers and sisters in blue to stay safe. This world would be a better place with you here. Miss you more than words can say. A new year, a few more tears... Love you, my sweet Josh.

Deputy Sheriff Joshua Norris,

I saw this episode 2 years ago, and I literally when I saw the ending. What made it even more emotional is how hurt your Field Training Officer was at your funeral. He was very tough on you during the On The Job training, but its only because he loved you. God bless your spirit and soul my brother.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

Well kiddo 8 years have past, allot good has happen, but Mrs Beth and I still know that it would have been whole allot better if you were still with us. The last time we celebrate the 4th was at Aunt Denise and Uncle Ron with Jess showing off her ring. That you had her drive your truck because you felt it was safer than her cavalier on the highway. Since then I tend to look pass the 4th since the 5th is to heartbreaking to remmeber. Kid you are the type of guy that fathers want their daughters to fall in love with. One's that treasure them as much as they do. You left us to early, but I know God had some special reason that he needed you for. Miss you kid

Deputy Norris,

With all the chaos that is going on in this world, I wanted to stop by your page and leave you another reflection. You will never be forgotten. I hope your family has held in strong. I heard the song "Hurt" by Johnny Cash the other day in a training video by the organization Below 100. What an amazing video... It's about officer safety and all the loved ones that took the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you again for your service.

Never forgotten.

Well son closing in on what would have been your 30th birthday and figure you met Eno at the gates last month. Still hard to believe out of the 6 of you boys that ran around the neighborhood three of you guys have been called home to the Lord. All three of you were good men and what us Dads that have daughters looked for in a son in-law. Well kiddo you will always have a place in this old man’s heart and missed every day.

Well Kiddo been awhile since wrote to you. Still in Beth’s and I hearts and day does not pass without us thinking about you. Keep a close eye on brothers and sisters in blue they are facing some big challenges of late. You have the media and political leaders painting them as the aggressor and their lack of support is making their job hard and if it could have been possible, even more dangerous. Those folks just need to visit yours and so many others to see the sacrifices those that wear the badge are will to pay for others. Do not believe any of those would rush to the call of help if they knew they may not return from it. Merry Christmas and Happy New years

Officer Norris will forever be remembered & respected as a true officer he was, in such a a short lived career. I am a fellow LEO and I want to take a moment to pay my respects to you.
My partner and I currently over see a youth law enforcement academy and want to let you know that we have dedicated a day to remember you. Many of the youths are passionate about wanting to pursue a career in law enforcement and strive to stay goal driven. We have dedicated a day to show them your video and show them an example of such a goal driven rookie officer. Watching you brings nothing but smiles to see how respected you were among veteran officers and how they took such a liking to you as we all did watching you!

God Bless you and may you be forever rest in peace in heaven.

I would like to take a second and honor Deputy Norris for his sacrifice, he was taken too soon. I remember watching his episode of Rookies for the first time, and I was pretty sad and upset to see what happened to him. I remember the story that the producers put at the end about how he had just gotten engaged, and they included the story that his FTO had said about that day. It was truly sad. I still have the episode saved and I watch it often. I aspire to be like you one day Josh. Rest In Peace.
