I just watched the Rookies episode dedicated to your memory. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and fellow sheriff deputies, even though it's been 15 years. They are still missing you. Thank you Deputy for your service and sacrifice.

I’m a rookie Officer and was shot in the line of duty in my last week of FTO.

Still now recovering from the incident and just finished watching the “Rookies” police show episode about Officer Norris.

The stories of our fallen brothers and sisters breaks my heart and reminds me everyday how thankful I am to be alive and still able to do the job I love once I fully recover.

Rest In Peace to all of our fallen brothers and sisters. God bless their families, all of law enforcement and the communities we love and serve.

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.
GOD Bless

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
