My heart is filled with great sadness at learning of the lost of your loved one and fellow Sheriff’s Sergeant of Deputies.
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?
You did not die in vain.
You sacrificed your life in the service to the citizens of Gilchrist County in the State of Florida 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.
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.
Sergeant Ramirez status......................Sergeant Ramirez status......................Sergeant Ramirez status........................
Attention All Units.........................Gilchrist County Sheriff’s Office, Sergeant Noel Ramirez having served the citizens of Gilchrist County in the State of Florida with HONOR, PRIDE and DISTINCTION is now 10-42.

The tragic murder of two good men by a cowardly slime bag is heartbreaking and infuriating. I cannot mourn your murderer's passing but we'll never know WHY, now. Then again, does that matter?

You should have had a full career until retirement and then lived to enjoy that retirement.

We all pray for those who know and love you best and I know, they will keep you in their hearts and minds forever thus never letting you get truly far from them.

Sergeant Ramirez, God bless you and may you forever Rest in Peace.

Rest in peace Sergeant Ramirez.


Somebody killed a policeman today .... And a part of America died…. A piece of our country he swore to protect .... Will be buried with him at his side.... The beat that he walked was a battlefield too,.... Just as if he had gone off to war, .... Though the flag of our nation won't fly at half-mast .... To his name they will add a gold star.... The suspect that shot him will stand up in court .... With counsel demanding his rights,.... While a young widowed mother must work for her kids .... And spend many long, lonely nights... .. Yes, somebody killed a policeman today…. Maybe in your town or mine,.... While we slept in comfort behind our locked doors.... A cop put his life on the line.... Now his ghost walks the beat on a dark city street, .... And he stands at each new rookie's side; .... He answered the call… of himself gave his all,.... And a part of America died.
