Rest in peace brother, your watch is over and you have served well. You will be welcomed in your new assignment. Thank you for your many years of service. God bless the family, friends, and co-workers of Detective Dinwiddie during this time of tragic and senseless loss. Prayers for the other officers for a full and complete recovery and return to duty. Demands that both of these subjects be charged with capital murder in this case as it is certainly warranted and deserving of the death penalty. Please, let's all be careful out there. God bless the peacemakers.

Detective Charles Dinwiddie,

When you made your decision to enter law enforcement some eighteen years ago you became blessed:

For the Lord said, "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." Matthew 5:9 ESV

When you responded to that residence for which you, along with your comrades, were armed with a Narcotics Search Warrant on Friday, May 9, 2014, you answered God's call to serve:

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then I said, "Here am I! Send me." Isaiah 6:8 ESV

As a result, you and three other police officers were gunned down by the suspect from within the residence as you approached; sacrificing your life on so that others might live and be protected:

And the Lord said, "Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends." John 15:13 ESV

I, along with your family, friends and comrades, will mourn your sacrifice and loss in the line of duty:

And the Lord said, "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4 ESV

Now go! Rise up! And do battle against Satan and his demons as an angel for the Lord!

In God's merciful love,

Pastor Steven R. Closs
Retired Captain of Police, Nashua NH Police Department

Whatever our duty, or wherever we serve, we are all brothers and sisters in this most honorable calling. We have lost yet another brother who we must never forget.

My deepest sympathy to both his family and his law enforcement family. My thoughts and prayers are with them. May he rest in eternal peace.

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Detective Chuck Dinwiddie and the extended law enforcement family of the Killeen, Texas Police Department. Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

"Greater love hath no man than this; that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Chief Joe Morbitzer
Westerville, Ohio Division of Police

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Detective Dinwiddie. May God watch over and comfort those left behind and may he rest in peace for a life well lived.
