It's been 10 months since you were taken from us and it still feels like yesterday. I remember how you use to tell me we would be "partners in blue" when I attempted to join the police force. You always was the one to make us laugh. You're truly missed, I feel you looking over me through my days. Meli & Tee miss you a great deal. Losing him was like losing a brother.
I'll see you in Heaven!!!

Officer Edwards

Most of us in Law Enforcement grew up with the soul intent of serving our Community or our Country. I have been an officer for almost 30 years and within that time I lost a lot of great officers such as yourself. It brings sadness to my heart to find out you were shot by a member of your own department. Now I know it may have been an accident but you would have still been alive today if it wasn't for that.

I try to teach all the officers under my command the " Wait Shoot Policy". They are only to fire their service weapons when a person or persons causes an reason for " Lethal Force. When a suspect pulls a gun out and aims it at officers or when the suspect has his gun drawn and attempts to raise it at officers. You were a great officer and I know you have made many of your friends and loved one's happy.

When an officer down call goes over the radio I always fear the worst. It doesn't matter what department you are from you do the same job as all Peace Officers do. You are now a angel protecting us from the skies and patrolling the streets of Heaven. I want to offer my condolences to all those who have worked the beat with him, were friends or family or others in Law Enforcement Or Military.

I just went to a memorial 3 days ago for a fallen officer by the name of George Valentino Cortez JR. He was killed 07/27/2007 while attempting to detain a suspect accused of cashing forged checks. He also had 2 years on the job. We all face the danger of not coming home after our shifts. I have been injured only once " In The Line Of Duty".




(10-7) Officer Omar J Edwards You Will Be Deeply Missed And Never Forgotten. 10-7 is our radio code for " Out Of Service" I don't Know Radio Codes for New York PD. Make sure you watch over all of us as we will watch over your family and friends.
