Reflections for Police Officer Specialist Timothy Brian Schock

To my first True Love, although we realize we must part ways after 12 great years of marriage. I have never stopped loving you, I think you knew that. I will keep your memory alive for Nicholas. We have shared some great times in our life and the 14 years we were together has left a lasting impression in my life. Nicholas and I will and already miss 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"

On behalf of the 57th Session...

We are saddened beyond words at the loss of one of our own fellow officers. Each day at the Academy, we honor those Chesapeake Police Officers who have fallen in the line of duty. Your memory has already become a part of this tradition; and as we ring the Memorial Bell an eleventh time each morning, we will both honor and respect the sacrifice you have made. Your loss has made you a part of us, a part of the 57th; and although we regret the manner in which we are now tied, we are beyond grateful for your service. Throughout the remainder of our journey we will look to your memory for guidance and strive to become officers whose dedication reflects that of your own. You are forever in our thoughts, forever a part of us....

After reading through all of these messages, no easy task at times through tear-filled eyes, it gives me some measure of comfort to know that Tim was so admired and loved by those who knew him personally. To the Men and Women of my CPD family, Public Safety professionals from around the world, survivors, and others, I thank you for taking the time to post such thoughtful reflections.
Tim was well known for his sense of humor. Many years ago he “triple-dog dared” my wife to run into the Atlantic Ocean during the Polar Plunge one chilly February and give me a kiss as I was performing as a safety diver in a full dry suit. Of course she did, much to my surprise, a true testament to Tim’s persuasiveness! My wife once worked in payroll at the CPD and she could always rely on Tim to stop by and bring a bit of cheer to her work day. I’ve known Tim my entire career having come on the class before his. We served together in Community Policing at “the Two” having a blast on bicycle patrol on more than one occasion. As a former dive team member, I am well aware of the rigors of this specialty duty that few can do and even fewer want to do. Tim loved doing it. I have many fond memories of Tim and will miss him greatly. My thoughts are with his son, fiancé, family members, and close friends. Rest in Peace Tim and if I could do it justice, I would spell out “skadoosh” because every time you said it, you made my day.

Tim, I was excited about the chance to have you as an F.T.O. again in March...I guess God decided I needed an angle more. Or maybe he just needed your smile closer to him. You will always be with me and I'll see you again one day my brother...

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the department, and those served, at the loss of this officer. May faith, family, friends and time join together to ease everyone’s pain at this time of loss.

While many other career choices were certainly available, this officer chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord said, “Blessed are the Peacemakers.”

Thank you for your service, your convictions and moral character, as well as your devotion to duty. May you now rest in peace, knowing your fellow brothers and sisters will continue the Watch!

Friends and family ask why we do it. With all the risks involved. With all the heartache and pain. We answer the same way everytime. Because we want to help. To bring closure to families of victims or more desired to save a life. The communities we live in need these services. If it was our family, we'd want someone to help.
In these times where one of use leaves in such a tragic way, our hearts go out to the family, friends and team members of the one who has fallen. We, as rescue divers, go to that next call or training dive with this event in our mind. In a way, Officer Schock is with us all.
