Reflections for Police Officer Andrew Scott Dunn

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]

Andy. 12 years have not changed my thoughts of you. I still display your window sticker, have your picture pin on my sun visor, and on a police hat in my kitchen. Helping out and making donations for your events I will always do. I still think of you often and remember our good times together. I am no longer your dad's third shoulder and have drifted apart from him for reasons unknown to me. This will never change my thoughts of you. Until we meet again (may be sooner than later), enjoy your eternal life..

10 Christmases, 10 yrs of laughs, hugs and memories that we just didn't get!! I miss you everyday but it is starting to get a bit harder. Now your niece who was 5 when you passed doesn't remember you. She remembers our memories we share of you...that's tough. It feels like yesterday and forever ago all at the same time. I love you and Merry Christmas!!

This is our 9th Christmas without you Brother. We try to smile and go through the motions but it just isn't the same. As we try to get in the spirit for the kids and for Mom and Dad, it seems to be getting harder with time rather than easier. The boys are getting so big and your nieces are nearly grown! We all miss you and can't wait to celebrate together when the time comes. Love you and cannot express how much we miss you. Merry Christmas

Love always your little sister!!

Thinking of Officer Dunn and his family. Hard to believe it's been eight years going on nine. Still seems some days like yesterday when I met your family at the L.E. Memorial wall in DC in 2012. Your name engraved next to my son's name for eternity. Forever remembered and honored.

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". 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.

7 years, and it seems like yesterday all over. Always think of you Andy, and have become pretty good friends with Caleb and Conner. A void was left in many lives on March 19th 2011. I have a special file of your pics on my laptop, and look at it often for memories of you. Rest easy my friend until we meet again.

7 Years..... these have been the longest and shortest 7 years of my life. I miss you so much. Just being able to call you or to have you pick on me. But what makes me the saddest is that you aren't here to watch your boys grow up, and man are they growing up!! Your nieces, cousins, grandparents, aunts/uncles and friends also miss you. I know you are up there welcoming so many new brothers/sisters, please continue to watch over us all!! Until we are together again, I love you!!!
