Reflections for Police Officer Brian Wayne Jones

To the family, friends and co-workers of Officer Brian Jones-I express my extreme condolences to all of you who have lost a loved one in the battle against what is wrong, violent and evil. The courage and sacrifice of Brian is being noted by Police Officers all across the country. He will be forever honored in our profession. May his memory and what he stood for be of some comfort to you today.

Belove, Brian Jones, enjoyed the beauty of the farmland in his home town.. before he arrived in Norfolk...he was a Spirit filled Christian. The Word of God was sealed in his heart. Brian, believed the words from Psalm 91.."Because he loves Me, I will honor him..."
Truly God's word is truth..."Brian's life will be honored in countless ways..."

"Big Country," you paid the ultimate sacrafice doing what you wanted to do! I remember eating at D'Egg with you and another officer last year summer. You caught me off guard, when I saw you sitting there. I asked "youre not in Crime Prevention anymore?" Your reply was "I cant do real police work in Crime Prevention." Rest easy!

Brian, I miss you already. I know that you are looking down on us and giving us the guidance that we need. I remember your first day in roll call like it was yesterday. You were a new Officer that day but your steadfast faith and never ending willingness to do the right thing grew to be a true inspiration to me and others. It was an honor to work with you and I look forward to seeing you again someday. Rebekah, please take comfort in knowing that Brian was a true friend and the memories that he left me with are priceless. R.I.P Brian

"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."

Jonsie, as we called him when he served with me in the Navy, was always a treasure to be around. He was the sort of person that you hoped you could be like, even though he was very junior to me in rank, I looked up to him, I cant explain it, he was judt that great of a person. I will miss him, and my heart goes out to his family. All who knew him know what I mean... he was with out a doutbt one of the best people youcould ever hope to have in your life.

Rest in Peace my friend...

I am a retired Norfolk Police Officer. I have always been so proud of the NPD and its officers. I have never been more proud then I am now. Officer Brian was the best of the best. His courage and the heroic actions of Off. Allison and the rest of the officers that responded that night most likely saved numerous lives. Now we mourn the loss of this great officer and we cry for his family. May God be with them and comfort them in a mighty way. May God watch over my NPD family and all our brothers and sisters in law enforcement that risk their lives every day. RIP Brian we will miss you and your name will forever be honored in memory.
