Reflections for Police Officer Noel Lee Hawk

To my nieces and nephew. I love each of you with all of my heart and always will. No matter what life throws our way we can always withstand and make it through. This family has been through so much over the years and no matter what we have always held strong to the Lord and we know he had a better purpose for Noel. I wasn't in this state when all of this happened but my heart was with every single one of you. Noel is resting with connor now and they will both always be missed by family whether blood or blue and will always be in our hearts, as will all of you kids. I love all of you,

Love Aunt Tipp.

Noel was one of a very few GREAT person's that I ever had the privalege to come across and associate with during my LE career. He never met a stranger and he never forgot a friend. I am proud to say that Noel and I were True Friends. Even though he and I had not seen or spoke to each other for more years than I want to admit. About a year before his untimely death, he and I had a very lengthy conversation about new things and a whole lot of old things. During that conversation, neither of us could believe that it had been in the 1980's since we touched base and he remarked that it really didnt seem that long ago. He will be sadly missed by all who really knew him! RIP My Friend, I salute YOU.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Noel died.

To the Hawk family, fellow officer, and all who call Noel beloved, 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 Officer Hawk gave to his community and the citizens of Georgia, and for the supreme sacrifice he and his family made on May 14, 2014.

Very saddened to here of the death of this officer from a disturbance call. These become so routine for us we just never expect this. Please except my sincere condolences for the passing of Eatonton Officer Noel Hawk. As a retired officer from a small town in Florida I know how small town policing is we don't have the rewards of the big city officers but we do it for the love of the job and family in the area mostly.
My prayers go out to his family in their time of need and to the Eatonton Police Department for their loss.

Officer Hawk,

Rest well in the arms of God.

To Your Family,

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray, “Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over three years. Feel those prayers. God is with you, He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

Don’t credit me with the mongrel prose: it has many parents-at least 420,000 of them: Policemen.

A Policeman is a composite of what all men are, mingling of a saint and sinner, dust and deity.
Gulled statistics wave the fan over the stinkers, underscore instances of dishonesty and brutality because they are “new”. What they really mean is that they are exceptional, unusual, not commonplace.
Buried under the frost is the fact: Less than one-half of one percent of policemen misfit the uniform. That’s a better average than you’d find among clergy!
What is a policeman made of? He, of all men, is once the most needed and the most unwanted. He’s a strangely nameless creature who is “sir” to his face and “fuzz” to his back
He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won.
But…If the policeman is neat, he’s conceited; if he’s careless, he’s a bum. If he’s pleasant, he’s flirting;if not, he’s a grouch.
He must make an instant decision which would require months for a lawyer to make.
But…If he hurries, he’s careless; if he’s deliberate, he’s lazy. He must be first to an accident and infallible with his diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and, above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp. Or expect to be sued.
The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn’t hurt.He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being “brutal”. If you hit him, he’s a coward. If he hits you, he’s a bully.
A policeman must know everything-and not tell. He must know where all the sin is and not partake.
A policeman must, from a single strand of hair, be able to describe the crime, the weapon and the criminal- and tell you where the criminal is hiding.
But…If he catches the criminal, he’s lucky; if he doesn’t, he’s a dunce. If he gets promoted, he has political pull; if he doesn’t, he’s a dullard. The policeman must chase a bum lead to a dead-end, stake out ten nights to tag one witness who saw it happen-but refused to remember.
The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy and a gentleman.
And, of course, he’d have to be genius….For he will have to feed a family on a policeman’s salary.
