"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."

Dear Jerry:

Some 240 years ago, a group of men set forth a way of life, unheard of before. A life where every citizen is guaranteed to live their life as they choose. A life where the citizens can live free, live without fear, enjoy the blessings of the Almighty and live in peace and comfort in their homes. This way of life has been threatened many times in that 240 years, both at home and abroad. The foreign threats were met with and eliminated by our beloved military, at a great price.

But the threat at home NEVER ends, and there needed to be a group, a very special group of people who would stand up for those who cannot protect themselves, to enhance the quality of life given to the citizens all those years ago. A special group of people who put others first and risk everything so those citizens may never know fear, horror or evil. And so this special group of people became known as American Lawmen. A very special and rare breed of people who take a solemn oath to Protect and Serve. Not a cliché, but an oath, an oath that they live by every day. An oath that has subjected them to ridicule, violence, shunned, and mistrusted. And yet, that special group of people, the American Lawmen, are out on the streets making certain that even the lawmen haters are safe.

They wear a badge of honor, and carry the burden of knowing every time they leave their families to do their job, may be the last time they see their families. They earn a pay that borders on insulting for the risks and tasks they perform every day. Most folks have a home that is covered in ivy or pretty flowers. Most of these lawmen have a house covered in mortgages and debt. But they still remain committed to their solemn oath, for it’s not money that motivates them. No, its’s the knowledge that today, somewhere, one of these lawmen located a missing child, gave CPR to a dying man or woman, helped an elderly person feel security and closeness, removed a violent criminal from the midst of the citizens they swore to protect. And, all too often, bury one of their own who made the supreme sacrifice attempting to guarantee those citizens their right to live free, free from fear and evil.

And there is their families. A child who wakes up one morning and asks his distraught and grief stricken mother, “Mommy, when is Daddy coming home?” And as the widow chokes back her tears, tells her child that, “God needed more police to help patrol the streets of heaven, so He asked Daddy to come help”. And the child sleeps with Dad’s pillow because it still has the smell of his cologne. The same families that will forever look at an empty chair at the dinner table.

Jerry, I am proud to be in the same fraternity as you, and every American Lawmen, active, retired and deceased. Those who are not privileged to wear the Badge of Honor cannot truly understand the depth of our love for them and each other. Thank you for your service, your sacrifice and dedication to our profession. And thank you to your family for the sacrifice they now are burdened with. And a special thanks to your Mom who gave 9 months of hell to have you, a lifetime to teach you to care for others before yourself. “Above all else, honor”. May you rest in peace my brother knowing we have the watch, and the “Thin Blue” has held, and always will.

TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES OF LITTLE ELM POLICE DEPARTMENT, DETECTIVE JERRY WALKER.

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 sacrifices 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(s), or stop for that stranded motorist, or rush to that call of shots fired then who will?
DETECTIVE WALKER
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens of Little Elm in the State of Texas 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.
FOR THOSE WHO FIGHT FOR IT, "LIFE HAS A FLAVOR THE PROTECTED WILL NEVER KNOW".
FINAL CALL
Detective Walker status........Detective Walker status......... Detective Walker status..........Attention All Units.............. Little Elm Police Department, Detective Jerry Walker having served the citizens of Little Elm in the State of Texas with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
Rest in Peace my fallen Brother, YOU WILL NEVER BE FOGOTTEN!!!
