Reflections for Police Officer Javier Bejar

Lord Jesus, as we watch America’s Peace Officers succumb to the wicked and evil in this world, Shot and Killed in the Line-of-Duty, it becomes difficult for us to pick up and move forward. Our communities are on the brink of exploding with tension. In light of the peace officers who are no longer with us, I pray for endurance for our communities and law enforcement agencies. Carry us through this time of strife, that through our struggles, our bonds may grow even more unbreakable. In Your mighty and holy name, I pray. Amen.

Holy Scriptures on Law Enforcement’s Mission:

“For the policeman [peace officer] does not frighten people who are doing right; but those doing evil will always fear him. So if you don’t want to be afraid, keep the laws and you will get along well. The policeman [peace officer] is sent by God to help you. But if you are doing something wrong, of course you should be afraid, for he [the peace officer] will have you punished. He [the peace officer] is sent by God for that very purpose. Obey the laws, then, for two reasons: first, to keep from being punished, and second, just because you know you should.” [Romans 13:3-5 TLB]

[Jesus Said,] “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” [John 15:13 ESV]

And he [Jesus] said to him, “Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” [Luke 23:43 ESV]

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons [children] of God.” [Matthew 5:9 ESV]

“And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

Officer Bejar,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the USMC during Operation Iraqi Freedom. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

Missing you like crazy tonight. Wish that I could just call you up to talk about life, work, and my usual girl problems. Nights like tonight I get so angry that I can't just call you up to just hear your voice. Love you

As I mourn the life of another fallen officer in San Jose, Ca. I am reminded of the lose I felt when you left us. We spent 2 weeks in Sacramento in 2009, training to be Defensive Tactics Instructors. We studied, practice and most importantly, we talked about life. We talked about our struggles, our fears and our future plans. Then, as we were planing on going back for our annual update in 2010, we never got the chance. I hope the memory of your life is still strong in your community and even stronger with your family. I am a better person from meeting you, GRACIAS.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing.

As I sit here at work I think of you and how proud you would be of me...I miss you very much and feel like life cheated me out of having you be there for me in the big and small moments of my life. Everything I do, I do with you in mind trying to make you proud and follow in your footsteps! I really miss our ride alongs but most of all I miss you!

I remember our time in the academy well. You always kept the class laughing. I recall when our RTO was quizzing us in formation one morning. When your time came up you gave your answer in your sinature gravelly yell. RTO said, "Very good Bejar," and moved on to the next cadet. No one in the class could understand what you said. RTO later admitted, neither could he.
Your upbeat nature and drive was a source of strength and inspiration to me.
I'm grateful to have known you and I will forever remember you.

Over a year has gone by but it seems like yesterday when I received the tragic news. I know you're in a better place guarding everyone you love. I will miss all the stories you use to tell, and cherish the memories of the dinners we had with you and Miriam.

You are deeply missed. RIP Bejar.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for the will be called sons of god. Matthew 5:9
