Reflections for Police Officer Christopher Ryan Morton

A police officer should be remembered not by how he died, but how he lived! A great man has gone to secure a safe path for the rest of us to follow. Thank you to you, your family and the Clinton Police Department. Our country is a little less safe without you. Rest in Peace Brother!

TO THE FAMILY, FRIENDS AND COLLEAGUES OF CLINTON POLICE DEPARTMENT, POLICE OFFICER CHRISTOPHER RYAN MORTON I.D. #319.

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 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?
OFFICER MORTON
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens of Clinton in the State of Missouri 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
Officer Morton status...................Officer Morton status....................Officer Morton status........................Attention All Units...............Clinton Police Department, Police Officer Christopher Ryan Morton I.D. #319, having served the citizens in the City of Clinton in the State of Missouri with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.
Rest In Peace my fallen BROTHER, YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!

The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord;
he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
The Lord helps them and delivers them;
he delivers them from the wicked and saves them,
because they take refuge in him.
