My thoughts and prays go out to the families and friends of these fallen officers. It has only been 3 days since we at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department remembered the 2 year anniversary of our own fallen, Officer Shaun Clark and Jeff Shelton. It still hurts to think of our two losses and I can not imagine the pain of loosening three at one time.

Know that they are in a better place. They devoted their lives to making the City of Pittsburg a better place and made the ultimate sacrifice for that goal. I am honored to be part of a profession that has heroes such as these fine officers.

I just wanted to say my prayers and thoughts are with this officer and his two other colleagues. As a Police Officer Recruit for a major metropolitan city this is a somber reminder of the dangers we all face. May God except these officers home so that they may continue to protect us from up above. God Bless You All. TL

"No greater love has a man than to lay down his life for a friend." Officer Kelly was a true friend of the City of Pittsburgh having made the ultimate sacrifice to protect her citizens. My prayer is for the family of Officer Kelly that they may someday find peace and comfort that Officer Kelly's life was not wasted as he made the ultimate sacrifice. Thank you for allowing him to be who he was and so valiantly served
to protect. May God's blessing be with you in these days and years to follow.

Dear Family Members:
I want you to know that I am far away in California and I am praying for you as you go through this senseless tragic loss of your loved one. Officer Kelly is a hero in every sense of the word for his bravery in an very extreme situation and his dedication to serve the people of Pittsburgh. I want his family to know that no one can really take him from you as long as you keep his memory alive in your hearts and minds daily. I am praying for you tonight and every day ahead that you can somehow find peace again in your heart to move forward after this horrible loss. He is a hero!!!!!
God Bless You All,

I am deeply saddened to hear of yet another instance where some of our bravest officers were gunned down in cold blood. I can't imagine the pain and sorrow felt by the families, departments, and communities these officers were a part of. I keep a prayer in my heart for fallen officers and their families at all times, and now am going to make room for these. It is just too sad that the evil and selfish criminal who cut these brave officers lives short did not meet the same fate as did the one in Oakland a few weeks ago. Rest easy now Brother, we have the watch.
