Reflections for Police Officer Bryan Joseph Durman

I met you for the first time when you were still in the academy at a cookout at the house of one of my academy buddies. You had brought your son with, and he was the spitting image of you. You were so curious, asking question after question, and worrying about the upcoming tests, but I could tell then that you were going to be just fine. While we never worked together I would see you from time to time, here and there, and got to meet your wife later at another of those wonderful cajun cookouts. I was always struck by your joyful spirit, and I can't for the life of me wrap my head around your senseless loss. You were just on the brink of your career, but had already accomplished so much, and I feel proud to have known you. The thin blue line is a bit more narrow in peace brother!

What a precious Officer, Bryan... How blessed we were to spend what seems as too short of a time with you. I am certain I will see you again someday. May God grant your wife, son, sister and family the strength they need during this incredibly hard to believe time. You were an asset to your family, your friends and the community. Your eagerness to perform your duties was a great example. May you rest in peace.

While I did not know Officer Durman personally, I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family and his brothers and sisters of the LFPD. It is a tragedy to lose a life so needlessly, but even moreso when that life was so young and full of promise.
My thoughts are with all who knew and loved this courageous young man.
