For Chief of Police Lee Dixon:

The duties of the law-officer, no matter the rank or position, can suddenly evolve to being present before those who will kill. We regret that our brother Lee would be the next law-officer to face a situation resulting in his death during service to others. We are thankful to the responding law-officers who quickly effected an arrest of the perp. May justice now prevail.
We pray for Lee's 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 Chief Lee Dixon, a proud and noble veteran police officer and soldier-of-law, a final salute.

While there are no words that can describe the loss this law enforcement agency has faced, We can only remember the lives you touched and changed forever. Your memory will live on through the shine of our shields and the beats we walk every day from now until Judgment Day. Brother Lee, till we meet again... Ride With Pride in Heaven I.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO! May God
Give the family and friends the strength and faith to deal with this tragic loss. Words can not express my sorrow!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

To the Dixon family, his officers, and all who call Lee beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith.
