Sean, you were a good friend and in the three years we worked side by side as partners, I learned much from you. You had a very quiet strength about you and I came to value your views during the many discussions and debates we had. I will miss talking to you regularly on Facebook and all the pictures you would post of your beautiful wife and daughter. You are a true fallen hero, giving your life to save another; there is no higher calling or selfless act. I am proud to say I knew and worked with you. May God give your family strength and peace in accepting the loss of their hero husband and father. Rest easy my friend.

End of Watch Sunday, September 6, 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.

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.

Officer Sean Peek and his family,
I am so very sorry to hear about your loss. My husband is a Detective and he puts is life on the line everyday for our family. When you put that badge and gun on your body every morning you protect and serve EVERYONE, even criminals. This is such a sad time we live in and you saw no prejudice. Jumping in the water after someone who is doing wrong is beyond a hero. I pray for your family and friends they get through this hard time. You will always be remembered, even to a complete stranger.

Rest in God’s most gracious peace, Officer Peek. Your sacrifice as a LE officer and a member of humanity went above and beyond. We are asked to take care of the least and most needful among us, and you fulfilled that call. As a sister of a prior LE officer (and now member of the DEA) , plus another brother who served in S&R for the USCG, I’ve witnessed the daily countless acts of heroism and caring, both large and small. May your loved ones find peace and comfort in your work well done.

In Honor of your Sacrifice and for your family and friends, I salute you as a HERO!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whose blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
