Reflections for Police Officer Bradley Ryan Jones

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.

I had the pleasure of meeting the parents of Officer Jones this morning. I simply knew them as relatives of a co-worker that had family in law enforcement. They asked if I collected police coins, which I do. I presented them with a Portland Police Bureau Training Division coin. What came next was both touching and emotional. They presented me with a memorial coin in honor of their son Bradley and told me the story of his death in the line of duty. I was moved by how brave and thoughtful they were in sharing this with me, and a few other co-workers. It was a pleasure meeting you Rick and Shannon Jones. It was a powerful reminder of the inherent dangers of this profession.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the third anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

Though we have never met, I recently had the opportunity to meet your wonderful parents. We met during the "2013 Road to Hope", a cycling journey into Washington DC to Honor the Fallen & Remember the Survivors.
You are truly Honored and I will always Remember your parents and your family I met in DC.
Rest in Peace

We had the honor of meeting your beautiful children this week in Washington DC. I first met your son, who asked for a patch or pin, and all I had was a 9/11 pin on my uniform that went to him. Then a moment later, someone told me that your daughter liked my pink handcuffs (they were from a breast cancer benefit last year). So she now has those. Hopefully not locking up her brother. We all then took a picture, and I have your memorial wrist band. Rest in peace brother, your family is well protected by the support of your friends and God above. Please watch over us, with St. Michael as we move along.

I had the distinct honor of meeting your mother this week. Such a special lady... We traded coins and it wasn't until I got back to my room that I did a double-take and realized what was on that coin. I pray that your family will always be protected by the hand of God. Know that you are loved and always will be. Rest in Peace my young friend...

What a year this has been..we have been taught so much. Mostly about how important it is to have Faith in our Heavenly Father.
I just finished tucking in your beautiful children, they miss you so much. Maddie is just learning to read stories to her brother. She is so helpful and beautiful .
Wyatt is playing soccer now, just like when you were young. But most important, He is so loving and much like you. He will yell from the other room. "Grandma I Love You".
Brad I Miss you!

Brad was my back up that night just one hour prior to his shooting. I had just taken a felony suspect into custody when his help call kicked out. It tore me up that I could not go and help. The next day I watched over Brad at the Medical Examiners Office. I used that as my time to reflect and say goodbye to a good partner. Miss you buddy

This year I will be participating in the Police Unity Tour for the 3rd year. I chose to ride in honor of your life because of the way you paid the ultimate sacrifice and to honor your life as a person and a fellow officer. I want you to know that you have not been forgotten about. Our motto is,"We Ride For Those That Have Died." Thoughts and prayers are with you and your family

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiance Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Officer Jones. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Brad he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Brad's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Brad's life was about so much more than the way he died. Brad will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Officer Jones, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiance Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been nine years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,

Jocelyne :)

This is sad so young that he was but whether he was young or not when a life is taken is heart-wrenching. We live in a world that is soooo ugly. My prayers go to his family.

I will be forever grateful that you chose to work on my squad this year. You were eager and full of potential. There was much that I wanted to teach you. Little did I know that it would be you that would teach me some tough lessons about life. Most of, I've learned to never waste a single moment. I carry the memory of your spirit with me at all times, and I will try to honor that memory every day. I know that you are watching over us.

If I could have one more talk with you, I would just want to tell you that I'm very proud of you.

His Judgment Day:
The officer stood and faced his God, Which must always come to pass. He hoped his shoes were shinning, Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, Officer, How shall I deal with you? Have you always turned the other cheek To my church have you been true?"
The officer squared his shoulder and said, "No, Lord, I guess I aint, Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, And at times my talk was rough, And sometimes I've been violent Because the streets are tough.
But I never took a penny That wasn't mine to keep.. Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help Though at times I shook with fear. And sometimes, God forgive me, I've wept an unmanly tear.
I know I don't deserve a place among the people here. They never wanted me around except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand. I never expected or had too much, But if you don't...I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne, where the saints often trod. As the officer waited quietly for the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, Officer. You've borne your burdens well. Come walk a beat on heaven's streets, You've done your time in hell"

I did not know you personally Brad... But I am your "Brother in Arms", and I know what you faced serving the cause of public safety. Rest in Peace my brother, and though I wish I didnt have to, I thank you for making the ultimate sacrife while serving the cause of law enforcement & public safety. We are one less..... and one step closer to chaos/ anarchy without you. May God grant your family, colleagus and friends courage, peace, and a ever increasing knowledge of the ultimate truth which is found in Christ Jesus. AMEN
