Reflections for Sergeant Ricardo Perez-Ortiz

On behalf of the Ohio Attorney Generals Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Sergeant Ricardo Perez-Ortiz and the extended law enforcement family of the Puerto Rico Police Department, Puerto Rico.


End of Watch Monday, August 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

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.

Sergeant Perez-Ortiz, when you chose to be a police officer twenty six years ago, you knew that each day, you will be putting yourself in danger, and yet you pursued your duty of protecting the safety of your community. At the hour of your death, I know for sure that our all-knowing, all-loving God surrounded you with angels to bring you safely home, where there is no pain, no tears, only peace and joy. May He immerse you and your loved ones in His Divine Mercy. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.
