Officer Toatley, God Bless you for your service, though I thank GOD the folks in the other car escaped serious injury, especially the children, the driver appears wholly to blame for risking the lives of those children and causing your completely tragic and totally unnecessary death. I hope he or she seeks forgiveness.

Again, God Bless you, Brother and may you forever Rest in Peace, we got it from here.

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I have lifted you and your family to God every morning for over four years. Feel those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow Officer.
We in the law enforcement community are a family, although our uniforms might be a different color and a badge, shield or star is pinned upon our chest.
Our area of enforcement may vary, we consist of many different agencies form across the nation, for we are : Municipal Police Officers, Sheriff's Deputies, State Police Investigators, State Highway Patrol Troopers, Conservation Police Officers, College Campus Police Officers, Correctional Officers and Federal Agents just to name a few.
We patrol small towns, large cities, college campuses, county roads, state highways, state parks and the United States Borders.
Whether active duty or retired, we are one family, a Law Enforcement Family, the thin blue line of protectors brothers and sisters bonded together by Honor, Service and Pride.
Daily we honor our fallen brothers and sisters never forgetting their sacrifice.
Daily our position is clear that we will Serve and Protect our communities without faltering and with no hesitation.
Daily we show pride in our chosen profession Law Enforcement, for we willingly walk the line of Good over Evil facing the unknown with courage keeping our trust and faith in GOD.
We know that evil roam these streets and at any moment in the course of performing our duties the ultimate sacrifice might be required of us in the service to our community, for Law Enforcement is not a job but a calling and only a few will make the decision to commit to that calling to serve for some will give all that they have.
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens of DeKalb County in the State of Georgia with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION.
I'm proud to have worn the uniform of a law enforcement officer like you did.
I'm proud to have pinned the badge upon my chest like you did.
I'm proud to have served and protected my community as you did.
I'm proud to call you my Brother!
I commend you my fallen brother for making the ultimate sacrifice in the performance of your duty.
For you left us doing what you chose to do.
Performing a job you were trained to do.
Upholding the oath you swore to do.
Most importantly doing what you loved to do..........Serving
and Protecting your community with Honor and Pride making a better and safer place for us all.
Officer Toatley status............Officer Toatley status...........
Officer Toatley status............Attention all Units................
DeKalb County Police Department, Police Officer Kevin Toatley having served the citizens of DeKalb County in the State of Georgia with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
Rest in Peace my fallen Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!
