It is always heartbreaking when an officer is maliciously and callously killed in the line of duty.
But we know that this officer died serving and helping his community and making a difference in the world that we live in.

Rest in Peace brother.

May the Lord comfort your family, friends and co-workers.

Thank you for your service.

Another of my brothers has died from a selfish act of one who cares nothing but for himself. A drunk driver, how senseless to take one of my family because he does not care. I grieve for the loss of one of my family, connected to me forever by that unbreakable Thin Blue Line, my thoughts and prayers go out to his family that has lost one they loved so much. But they must remember that his sisters and brothers loved and will miss him also, even the ones he never meet. One thing they can take comfort in though is that WE WILL NEVER FORGET HIM ! We will meet again in a better place someday. God bless his family at home and his family in Blue.

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Georgia Ports Authority Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES OF GEORGIA PORTS AUTHORITY POLICE DEPARTMENT, CORPORAL WILLIAM SOLOMON.

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 od 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.
CORPORAL SOLOMON
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens 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.
FINAL CALL
Corporal Solomon status.......Corporal Solomon status........
Corporal Solomon status..............Attention all Units..........
Georgia Ports Authority Police Department, Corporal William Solomon having served the citizens in the State of Georgia with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now

Rest in Peace my fallen Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!
