I cannot find the correct words to express any sentiment worthy of any of the great people who laid down their lives in the line of duty. 78 Officers this year have made the ultimate sacrifice. 78 times the final tones have rang calling our fellow officers to End of Watch. You all will be forever missed and your memories treasured. I pray your families find the peace you all fought so hard to preserve.

For all those who fight through the grief and against the horrors of the world; for those who stand up and say, " Take me, I will continue to fight for Honor, Dignity and righteousness." God bless you all.

To the family of Police Officer Kenny Moats

I was deeply sadden when I read of the death of Officer Moats. Please take comfort in Jesus words found at John 5:28,29 where he said that there would be a resurrection. Just think of the time when we will see our loved ones again, in paradise conditions, here on earth. Once again, my condolences to the family.

My heart sank the moment I heard “shots, fired, officer down”. My heart sank even deeper when I heard “Its 156”. I dropped everything and started your way hoping that you would be ok. Unfortunately those tragic events had already unfolded. You were my brother on Traffic for many years before going to the 5th Judicial Drug Task Force. I hated to see you leave Traffic but I was happy for you because I knew the 5th was where you wanted to be. You were the happiest I had ever seen you and seemed to have a new “glow” about you every time I saw you. You were a good officer and there was no question in my mind that whatever situation we were placed in you always had my back and that I could trust you 100% with anything. I’m going to miss all the conversations, good times, and laughs we have shared over the years of working together. You made the ultimate sacrifice for both your fellow officers and your community and you will be deeply missed.

A Police Officer's Prayer
Oh Lord, while I'm on my beat
May I know that you're with me,
And protect me as I go to guard
Other's lives and property.
Help me ignore those who scorn
And show me no respect,
But be mindful of all citizens
I've sworn to protect.
Be with my fellow officers
And guard their safety too.
May I always put duty first
In the work that I must do.
May I not disgrace the uniform
But bring pride to the badge I wear.
That I'd be a good policeman, Lord
Would be my only prayer.

Fugitive Agnet. Matthews
