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 prisons, county jails, 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 and the sacrifice of their families.
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.
BLUE LIVES MATTER - If we don't respond to that call for help or investigate that suspicious subject or stop for that stranded motorist or rush to that call of shots fired then who will?
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens in the State of Mississippi with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION.
I'm proud to have worn the uniform of a law enforcement officer.
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.
Special Agent Tartt status....Special Agent Tartt status....... Special Agent Tartt status..........Attention All Units............ Mississippi Department of Public Safety - Bureau of Narcotics, Special Agent Lee Tartt having served the citizens in the State of Mississippi with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
Rest in Peace my fallen Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!

My condolences to the family of Special Agent Lee Tartt.

Please keep God’s promise at Revelation 21:4 where it says "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Please try to take comfort in knowing that violence will be done away with and you will see your loved one again.

To the Wife and children of yet another fallen angel. May the good Lord cast his everlasting love upon you and your siblings. May He embrace you and comfort you as mankind cannot offer such Godly comfort. It is devastating to accept the fact that the person whom you have loved, whom you depended on and to whom you gave your love is now no more. Rest assure that God has retrieved one of his finest to walk beside Him in His Heavenly home. We trust that you will embrace the memories of your husband, cling to your faith and allow God to lead and comfort you. Please accept our sincere condolence from South Africa.
