My heart goes out to this officer's friends, family, and department. I hope that everyone can find comfort in Revelation 21:4 "And he (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". One day, we'll be able to welcome back our loved ones that we've lost to death and never have to lose them again. Until then, my sincerest condolences goes out to everyone that knew this brave officer.

End of Watch Saturday, November 10, 2018.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

By Jon F. Hooper

Officer Franks, our Lord took you back just when you were starting to make your contribution to the world. Only He knows why, and trusting on His goodness, His reason would be good. He is a loving and generous God, and He will surely take you into His loving arms and help your loved ones in their time of grief. May He immerse you and them in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.

When we were in the academy together, it was my job to print off and read to the class every addition to the ODMP. I never imagined that I would visit this page to see the face of a friend, coworker, and former classmate on the front.

Jared, you were an inspiration to everyone that knew you. You worked your ass off and loved your job. If anyone needed help, you were there without a question. You found the light of every situation. You were the best of us. You will be missed. But you can rest easy now, knowing that we’ve got it from here. I love you buddy, and I’ll see you again one day.
