I heard about her being killed from my wife on Friday morning. My wife is High School classmates with her Mom. My wife asked me back in 2016 if I would speak to one of her friends daughter's that wanted to be a Police Officer. I said sure. Around June 2016 Katie called the house and I spoke with her. She had lots of questions and I gave her some advice about becoming a Police Officer. I didn't know until then that she had become one. My heart goes out to her family and friends as well as her Brothers and Sisters in Blue of the Newport News Police Department. RIP Officer Thyne.

In this community we take family very seriously. We look out for one another and do everything in our power to make sure everyone gets to go home at the end of their shift. It is difficult, tiring, and dangerous work where any mishap has real consequences. When things go wrong they can go very wrong and end in a manner that robs us of an exemplary individual. Thursday January 23, was one of those days, our family and community say goodbye to a young officer that gave her all to service and will not be going home as we all strive to do. My heart goes out to the Officers family both immediate and Department and most of all to her 2 year old daughter. May all who grieve find peace in memory and forgiveness in justice. Rest easy Sister, we have the watch.

Avenue of the Fallen

Standing at attention in their class “A“uniforms, badges gleaming and shoes like glass, are your brothers and sisters of Law Enforcement. All of whom have previously paid the ultimate price.
Today, like many others, they welcome you to this wonderful place.
As you march down the Avenue of the Fallen, all eyes focus on you as if to say “it’s OK, you’re with your eternal partners.”
A salute is followed and a tear can be seen on so many faces.
Welcome, you served well.
Now come join us in the ranks, another is coming home.
