Every time I see a marked unit pass my house when it's your rotation, I still think that it's you stopping by. This last year has been a blur. I hate going in the roll call room. I see your photo on the wall, reminding me you're gone. When I check my SOD box, a plate covers your pigeon hole. The Unity Tour represented you well this year. I honestly get pissed off when others express their dissatisfaction about who can go on that. They don't get it Jeff. But you pushed is up those difficult hills. As I pedaled uphill, I had your photo on my aerobars and then the hill seemed easy. This profession is fortunate because you wore the uniform. I miss you man. Watch over us.

Man I miss you and the old days in the jail on C-shift, Every day you run across my mind and I can't help but see that grin you kept on your face no matter the circumstances. I still rememeber our last conversation as you were headed to work a 62R, I always keep your family in my prayers and can't wait until I can see you again bro.

Don't know where to start. Today is your birthday and so many remember you, but to let you know, I think about you every single time I put the badge on. You were a really good dude who touched so many lives. Your dry humor was at times horrible but you were always positive and ALWAYS had your brothers/sisters back. Jeff, I know that you are up in heavens army now looking out for us on this earth, a policemans job is never over, please continue to watch over us. Miss you man!

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Jeff was killed.

To Jeff's family, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Deputy Jeff Watson gave to his community and the citizens of Louisiana, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on August 4, 2013.

God didn’t promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Rest in peace.

I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above.

"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."
