Reflections for Police Officer Todd Allen Bahr

I'm with The Police Unity Tour Chapter 4 which is from Virginia. We just completed our ride last month and we stopped in Fredericksburg at the new police station. We were greeted by some of the nicest guys and we toured the new station. I remember looking at the wall of rememberance and seeing that two officers had died at the same incident in 1964. Now another brave officer has made the ultimate sacrifice in the preservation of justice. It always saddens me to hear of a fellow Virginia officer who died trying to protect us and our families. Rest in peace brother, walk a beat on heaven's streets, you've done your tour in hell.

Final Inspection

The officer stood and faced his God.
Which must
always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining, just as brightly as
his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, how shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek? To church have you been true?"

The officer squared his shoulder and said, " No, Lord, I guess I ain't,

because all of us who carry badges 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 tough.

But I never took a penny that
wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got
too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help, though at times I shook with
And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
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
There was silence all around the throne where the saints often
As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his GOD

"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well
Come walk
a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

RIP Officer Bahr

I'd like to start by saying thank you to all who have posted.I have read everyone so far and it seems Todd has touched each of you in 1 way or another.
What a great way to remember a fallen comrade.
I talked with Todd different times about his work and he was always so excited to go on his next shift.He told me of a few chases and things that had happened and was so excited even when he was telling me.It was like he was reliving them.He was very animated with his stories.
We would laugh and laugh about them.
I didn't get to see him much being I live about 1000 miles away but when we talked it seemed we were in the same room.
I will miss him greatly and miss the phone calls.
My brother and I will be flying out Wed. and I hope to meet some of his brother officers while we are there.
Thanks again for your support and prayers in this sad time.
RIP cousin.
And as someone else said "long live badge #337"

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and co-workers. Even though I am several states away, we are all brothers in blue. I have been shot in a domestic disturbance. I know what it is like. We are an underpaid, unappreciated few, willing to sacrifice our lives for the safety of a stranger. Rest in Peace, Officer Bahr.

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.

I met Todd several times back when he owned Damage Inc in Stafford. He was always a great guy to talk to, and was very excited about applying to Fredericksburg PD and later becoming an Officer. He will be truely missed by his fellow officers and the citizens of The Commonwealth.

An Angel In The Sky Must Leave His Place Of Rest.
Gently Tucking His Wings Beneath His Armored Vest.
For Duty Has Called, There Is Much Work To Do,
Little Did He Know, This One Is Dressed In Blue.

Arriving On The Scene, He Knows Just What To Say,
Follow Me, Fallen Brother, I'll Show You The Way,"
Your Duty Has Ended, Your Work Is Now Through,"
Come Hang Your Hat Beside Mine,
I'm A Cop, Too"

Officer Todd Bahr, You have given the Ultimate
Sacrifice for the Citizen of the USA.

Almighty and Enternal God. We commend, Officer Bahr,
