End of Watch Wednesday, June 24, 2020.


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

You will be missed. To one of my first “PROTECTIVE “back up unit in patrol in 2002 to me being your SGT. There was never a day you didn’t have a kind thing to say. You policed with empty and compassion, so it was ultimately just fit for you to become and SRO, your purpose. You impacted so many who will become so great because of knowing you.

Keep watching over us down here!

My condolences to his family, friends, and co-workers

I wrote the following: These are the unsung heroes of today;

God is control;
He has sent his ministering angles
to watch over those who are
suffering knowing, in your heart,
You would gladly take their stead;

They have God's enforcement

The true measure of a person
is not found in the
might of their arm,
their wealth
or their power –
it is found in the strength
of their character.

There is no greater testimony to
ones character, than ones
willingness to sacrifice all,
in the noble quest of
providing protection to all
whom they serve.

I met Deputy Minor in 2008 when I worked at 911 for Rockdale county. Over the years I got to know him on a personal level. He always had a smile on his face and something hilarious to say. As a SRO, he touched the lives of countless children & parents. It was just a blessing to know him. He will be missed greatly by family, friends, co-workers and the public he served. RIP 2222 <3
