Officer Pounds,
On today, the 10th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the USAF. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

To: The Pounds family and The NC Department of Public Safety - Division of Prisons.
As a member of Law Enforcement United, I have the privilege and honor to ride for Edward A. Pounds this year during the 2019's Police Memorial Week. Members will depart Chesapeake, Virginia en-root to Washington DC. This is a 250 mile, three day bicycle ride to remember and honor the sacrifice of Corrections Officer Pounds. Funds raised for this annual ride will support the COPS foundation and their work to support the families of Officers killed in the line of duty. My deepest condolences to the family, friends, and co workers.

Thank you sir for your sacrifice. It is clear that the man responsible for your murder should not be released from prison. He should serve a life sentence. He will kill again.

How sad is it that the North Carolina justice system values your life at less than 6 years? Many thanks to you for your service to the criminal justice system; the same one that failed you and your family. You and your colleagues represent perhaps the least appreciated criminal justice positions, corrections officers. Your service and those of your fellow corrections officers across the land are not forgotten by this family. Thank you again for your service and we wish for your family fair winds and following seas.

For Corrections Officer Edward Pounds:

The corrections officer spends his or her entire day among those who are convicted of the worst crimes. Most are repeat offenders or those serving extended jail time. When trouble occurs it is the first-line corrections officer that usually suffers the most severe attack or retaliation of some of the worst in the system. Grave injury of death looms before everyone wearing the CO's symbol of authority. We regret that our brother Ed would become a statistic while doing the work that would make most immensely fearful.

We pray for Ed's family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the days ahead.

We are proud to render Corrections Officer Edward Pounds a final salute.
