Reflections for Police Officer Tyler Jacob Stewart

Ofc. Stewart,
I never met you but I wish I could have had the pleasure. I heard the story of your last call the other day while in the hallways and I wish it could have been different. So many of your brothers still talk about you every day and remember you. I often wonder if you know your photo hangs in our hallways as a reminder of your bravery. I wonder if you know on the anniversary of your last call they set a memorial in the hallway. On that day, each officer stops at that table and touches it, remembering your heroism. Our lost brother in blue, I hope you know how loved you are by those who met you and those who never had the pleasure to. Rest in peace Tyler. You will never be forgotten.

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."

John 5:28, 29 - "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out". I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

On this terrible day, I was a 22 y/o man fresh out of the police academy. You were not much different from myself, both of us young men who were raised in a law enforcement family who decided it was time to wear the badge once we came of age. I thought of your family who would never see you again and it broke me. It stuck with me and made me realize the dangers out there in this line of work, this cruel, cruel world. Though I have decided to pursue a different career, I still think about it a lot. Thank you for your service. My condolences and utmost respect to the family, friends, colleagues of Officer Stewart.

I would have done anything to save you that day. I've analyzed that morning a million times and wish so badly that we could have handled the call differently. I hope you knew that we were sending the world to help you as soon as that 911 came in.
I've had the honor of getting to know your family and hear stories about all the laughter you brought to their lives. I know that you would want everyone to find peace and happiness amidst the heartbreak. We will continue to support your family as much as we can in honor of your sacrifice. 688 will never forget your cheer and enthusiasm after every ridiculous 10-70.

It's almost been a year Tyler and still not a single day goes by that I don't think about that day. I'm sorry that I couldn't have gotten there sooner. I'm sorry that it was you who took that call.

We've done our best this last year to take care of your family but that pain is still there. We'll continue to do it in your honor. I often think of the moments in life that we take for granted that you'll never experience again. I'm sorry I was an asshole when we interacted before. I know you didn't take it personally.

I know you said that if you had to sacrifice your life for the citizens of this town that it would be worth it. It still hurts.

I love you brother. We'll take it from here.

Though I did not know you personally Officer Stewart, you gave to your community in making it a better place with the ultimate sacrifice. You had roots of a career police family, yet you chose on your own to turn a life around. You left this earth doing exactly what you believed in. No more honor should be bestowed on anyone. I will always remember all that you did in your short time here.
I have no doubt that your honor is now being bestowed by our God.

No rank. Just a guy watching YouTube that can't help but feel some of the hurt and pain that this man's family must have went and are going through.. There is no doubt that officer Tyler saved a life of lives that day..I just hate literally hate that a good life had to end for tthat one sick individual. God has a reason.......

There is not a day that goes by when I don't think of this day. I remember every weird detail. I remember coming to work before the sun was up and hearing you cough across the parking lot and us talking about our whole squad being sick. I remember the locker room talk we were having that day... I remember seeing some graffiti on a wall that had some police hatred on it and thinking to myself today is going to be a bad day. I remember hearing you check out over the radio saying you were going to stop on Clay. I remember finding you. I remember sitting at the hospital with you.... there is not I day that goes by where I am not haunted by that cold December afternoon. I love and miss you brother! FOREVER BRAVO.

I attended the local Warrior Mindset training by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman and Calibre Press a few weeks ago. Tyler was mentioned during the training seminar, as well as others who have given their lives in service. Thank you Tyler for your sacrifice and you are still remembered. My prayers continue to go to the family and the agency in this tragic loss and the future you must all face without him present. May God Bless and keep you.

Not a day goes by that I don't think about us growing up riding with our dads. We always knew we wanted to take after out heroes. It's still hard to believe and we will all miss you deeply, but I know just like my family there is nothing that would have made you happier than putting on that uniform, just like your dad!n "Big Dog" We are all proud of you and we will meet again. I love you brother!
