I hope everyone will find comfort in Acts 24:15 - "And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous." Until we see our loved ones again on an earthly Paradise, please accept my condolences.

On behalf of my family, I extend our sincerest condolences on the grievous loss you suffered when Kristen was killed.

To the Hearne family, fellow officers, and all who call Kristen beloved, my heart goes out to all of you and may you find comfort in your loved ones and your strength in your faith. When my son was killed, the entire law enforcement community in our area embraced us in a circle of love and support, and I know you will receive the same support. It makes the unbearable less torturous, and I pray for your solace. I hope that your family knows that a nation mourned for you.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the dedicated service Detective Hearne gave to her community and the citizens of Georgia and for the supreme sacrifice she and her family made on September 29, 2017.

We just learned of the death of our community partner, Detective Hearne. We had offered our assistance to her and Polk County Police in the matters surround the untimely death of 12 year old Katelyn Nicole Davis some months ago. Detective Hearne was a caring professional and dedicated to her community and it's families, not just her own.

We extend our deepest condolences to her family in life, policing, and community.

My condolences to your family, friends, and fellow officers. I rode my bike today in an event to honor fallen officers, and I wore a wristband with your name on it to honor you. My late husband was a deputy constable, so I am very appreciative of the service and sacrifice law enforcement officers provide on a daily basis. Thank you so much for your service to the people in Georgia. RIP Det. Hearne
