Reflections for Patrolman Liquori Terja Tate

Officer Tate, you have chosen to serve at one of the toughest times in U.S. law enforcement history. Thank you for your service.


"I have laid down my life in service to all of you.
I have been a part of the fabric that has held the line between your safety and your victimization. I have given my life so that others may live in peace. I have lived my life as a dedicated member of the greatest profession. There is no greater honor.

As I now become a part of the rich history of law enforcement, please remember me always for I have left behind those who loved and depended upon me.
My partners and my agency, please remember my family, their loss, and don’t let time soften your compassion for them.

You guard the gate now and I will continue my watch from above."

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.

"My Brother"

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was idealistic and believed he could make a difference.
He was immensely proud of the uniform and the badge and what they represent.
He felt privileged to be of service to his department, his community and to his country.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was friendly, courteous, and polite, yet firm.
He laughed and joked, but was serious when necessary.
He was competent, trained, and professional.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He had a strong sense of right and wrong and became
frustrated when true justice became sidetracked.
He felt the sharp criticism that goes with the job, but he
never wavered.
He stood by and for his fellow officers.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He longed for his family during the long hours.
He worried about them during his shifts and the lonely
weekends, holidays and midnights when they were apart.
He felt guilty about the lost time, but knew his calling
and prayed they would understand.

He was a cop.

Although I never met him, I knew him.
He was a good son, a loving husband, and a devoted father.
He was dedicated to the profession and cared about the
people he served.
He wanted to do the best job that he could and strived to
be the best he could be.
He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.

He was a cop.

Yes, I did know him.
He was a cop, he was my Brother.

For Officer Liquori Tate:

The law-officer is almost always in a position of disadvantage when making a normal traffic stop and is vulnerable to slime who would gun him down at the first opportunity. We regret that Liquori and his partner would be the next law-officers to die at the hands of lawless individuals with little respect for themselves let alone the law.
We pray for the Liquori's family, co-workers, friends and all who care about him. May they be ready to reach-out to one another in the days ahead.
We are proud to render Officer Liquori Tate, a soldier-of-the-law, a final salute.

Officer Tate,
I thank you for your service, and for your willingness to lay down your life in the protection of others. It is a tragedy that you were not given an opportunity to serve another 25 years, as I am sure you would have impacted countless lives in the course of an outstanding career. Although your time as an officer was cut short, know that your service and legacy will live on forever. My prayers go out to your family, and to the Hattiesburg PD family.
