We thank you for your service to Philadelphia, we respect the sacrifice that has been made by Sergeant Simpson, his former partner, and all those who have served our country in the Police, Fire, and Armed Services of the USA. It is our countries loss when we lose those who sacrifice their lives for our safety. May GOD bless you, your family, and those who still serve.

On this Thanksgiving Day, I thank you Sgt. Simpson for your service and hope that you can rest in peace now. My 2 1/2 year old daughter tells my husband and I both to "be safe" when we leave for work and she doesn't even understand why just yet. She wanted to know why mommy was sad when we saw all the policemen on TV on Monday.
God Speed, Sgt. Simpson and we'll take it from here.

I was distraught and numb to hear of your passing. I've had the honor of attending the funerals in Philly this year and quite honestly don't know how the Department moves forward- but they do. As they do, they'll never forget you or your family's sacrifice.
Probably the hardest part was explaining to my 3 yr. old son on monday morning- why the police men on the t.v. looked so sad and were walking next to the horses. I told him because a police man became an angel and had to go home to God. He accepted that answer and said what about the bad guy? I replied the bad guy is in jail. My son said "good" the bad guy should not go with the angels. So true from a 3 yr. old's perspective, ha? God speed.

Words cannot begin to express the feelings going through my mind. These last 13 months have been unbelievable to our department. The pendelum needs to swing the OTHER way for a long time. The POS who did this will get what he deserves... Rest in peace Sergeant, Godspeed.

My deepest sympathy goes out to Sgt Tim Simpson, his surviving family, friends, and brothers of the Phila. PD.

People ask me, why do you want to be a cop? I answer, "because of people like Sgt. Simpson." I can only hope to do half as good as you did, sir.

My God rest your weary eyes and ease all of your pains. You are in good hands now.

This gentlemen , i had a brief encounter with as i was rushing to get to my neices first holy communion. I was speeding on 95, comming from work on a early sunday morning, dressed in yellow, gift on my car seat when i was pulled over. Sergeant Timothy Simpson, pulled me over and said the birds were even stopping for me i was going so fast and how could he ticket someone who looked like the sun. He told me to go slower, i would get to the communion and live to see my niece. I cannot tell you how many times i have talked about Sergeant Simpson since this summer. But I can tell you he touched my heart, and my life, in a surprising unexpected encounter. My prayers go out to the family that lost such a wonderful, kind and endearing man. I will never forget him, and will pray for you all to make peace with why god decided he needed to leave so many people behind .GOD BLESS!

To the family of Sgt. Simpson, my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I had the opportunity to meet and speak with Sgt. Simpson on several occasions the week after Sgt. Liczbinski's death. He was a great cop and an even better person. This loss is difficult for everyone, but especially those associated with the 24th, even those indirectly associated such as myself. Tim was of great comfort to me personally during that trying time, so if I can be of any comfort to you, please let me know.
