My faithful servant.
You were called upon to serve others.
You were asked to see, what no man should ever have to see.
To go through, what no man should ever have to go through.
But you did so with pride, honor, and integrity.

My faithful servant.
You were called upon to defend those, who could not defend themselves.
To provide justice to those, who did not respect it.
To lay down your life, if the time called for it.
Again, you did not question what was asked of you.
You did it with love, compassion, and loyalty.

My faithful servant.
In times of adversity, you prayed for strength.
In times of triumph, you praised your Lord.
You served your Country, State, and city proud.
Your service will forever be remembered by the many lives you’ve touched.

My faithful servant.
When your service on this earth is finally complete.
I will welcome you home with open arms.
I will embrace you and proclaim,
“Well done thou good and faithful servant.”

RIP my brother, the Lord has taken you home.

The roll has been called, and one officer has not responded to his name. He has laid down his working tools and been summoned to rest from his earthly labors to his eternal reward.

Rest in Peace, Brother.

God Bless Officer Patrick's family as they deal with this tremendous loss.

Traffic stops and domestics are the two most dangersous scenerios officers deal with. Let's all learn that complacency kills. Always be ready for anything.

On behalf of the Metro Transit Police Department, we would like to offer our sincerest condolences to Officer Patrick's blood family as well as his family in blue: the Mendota Heights Police Department.

Several of our officers responded to the initial "officer down" call as well as participated in the manhunt that followed. If there is any solace to be found during this dyer time - it is that his murderer is in custody and will face punishment for his crime.

It will never bring Scott back - but at least it will provide some comfort to Scott's family knowing that the person who tore him away from everyone too soon will spend the rest of his life in an 8X10 prison cell.

Officer Patrick,

Your willingness to stop out with us while we are on a call in your city and even let us use your equipment when ours wasn't working will always be remembered. It was always refreshing to see you coming our way with your big smile and positive attitude. It was very clear you cared deeply about your city and about the other officers that surrounded your city. Whether it was to stop and say hi or stop to help, you will truly be missed.
