My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow Police 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 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 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 our 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.
ALL LIVES MATTER - LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS SHOULD BE RESPECTED - 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 of Eastman 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 Smith status............Officer Smith status............... Officer Smith status...............Attention All Units.............. Eastman Police Department, Police Officer Tim Smith having served the citizens of Eastman in the State of Georgia with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.

Rest in peace brother. May America be a safer place due to the sacrifice that you and all public safety members make by going to work each day. When citizens run for cover, public safety members run towards the danger to protect the life of all people. No public safety member has ever quit their job when danger arose. Thank you brother for your sacrifice.

On behalf of the Westerville, Ohio Division of Police, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Police Officer Tim Smith and the extended law enforcement family of the Eastman Police Department, Georgia

End of Watch: Saturday, August 13, 2016.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

It makes no difference the size of the agency! Every officer is putting themselves out there in harm’s way to protect the people they serve. We are find ourselves at a point in time where your life may be taken for having a job where you want to help people. Now his family will no longer have him at their side. He gave all he had to give and this community and world are a better place because of him. RIP my brother and may the good Lord watch over your family.

Officer Smith, thank you sir for your service. Another officer murdered answering a call. Your killer is a coward who apparently used his advantage against you. Hopefully the killer gets what he has coming to him. We will keep your family and Department in our thoughts. Please watch over us as we carry on.
