You were my partner during my rookie year. Truly one of the best Police Officers I've ever known. I've been through foot chases and kicking in doors with you. You did the job better than most. Your faith lets me know that I will see you again one day. We miss you #502.

My deepest condolences to the family, members of the sheriff's office, and those served, at the loss of this deputy. 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 deputy chose to protect his fellow man, and for this we give everlasting thanks. As the Good Lord hath 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 watch over your family and continue the Watch!

"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
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 awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just 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 unmanly tears.
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 had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

For Deputy Sheriff Hans Fifer:

Our duty as law officers is fraught with stress and during training it is not unheard-of to suffer from hidden heart disease resulting in the loss of life. We regret that Hans would be the next law-officer to die during training - despite it's very purpose to contribute to fitness and health.
We pray for Hans' family, friends, co-workers and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another at this time.
We are proud to render Deputy Hans Fifer, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.
