I am truly sorry to hear of the death of Officer Hanes. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
My uncle was also passed away from the stupidity of a drunk driver while protecting the community he loved.

I am a single father raising two children. I meet Bryce and his family for the first time last Thanksgiving when Bryce's sister-in-law, Becky, graciously invited my children and I to their home to celebrate the holiday with their family. He was very charismatic, funny and genuinely nice. A real gentleman. Although I did not get an opportunity to know him intimately, I was sincerely saddened to hear about his passing. I cannot express deeply enough my condolences to his entire family and loved ones.

"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."

I'm sure several of Bryce's partners will share their thoughts here, but it's hard to put in to words what an amazing police officer and man Bryce Hanes was. Bryce was compassionate, courteous, a great friend to everyone, and the type of officer you would hope showed up if ever you needed the police. In the field, Bryce was the epitome of professionalism, never used foul language or acted disrespectfully, and the type of guy who had joined the force for all the right reasons. He worked for years on the yard, not because he enjoyed the hours, but for the comradely and the fact that it allowed him to spend more time with his family. You were an uncommon man Bryce. It was an honor to serve with you dear friend, and you'll forever be missed by your brothers and sisters at SBPD. RIP Brother.

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 may be a different style and vary in color, a badge, shield or star may be pinned upon our chest.
Our areas of enforcement may vary but our goals are the same, to serve and protect our communities. We consist of many different agencies from 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 in the City of San Bernardino in the State of California 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 Hanes status.............Officer Hanes status..............
Officer Hanes status.............Attention all Units.................
San Bernardino Police Department, Police Officer Bryce Hanes I.D.#89 having served the citizens in the City of San Bernardino in the State of California with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
Rest in Peace my fallen Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!
