Lord God, You are the Light, the Love, and the Life, the ultimate example has been shown to us through the work and ministry of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Yet, in daily life, You raise civil servants who also lay down their lives for the protection of others. We magnify You, Lord God, for continuing to show us what it looks like to serve and suffer in a redemptive manner. Help us to put into practice the example of these fallen law enforcement officers in our own lives, so that their sacrifice may not be in vain. In Christ Jesus, Your Son, I pray. Amen.

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.

It was an honor to have met Diane while on patrol in New Haven. I recall crossing paths with her early on in my career during a motor vehicle stop where I checked to see if she was all set and remained on scene until her NHPD backup unit arrived. She was a sweetheart and a blessing to the community she served. May God bless and embrace Diane in his loving arms as she celebrates a reunion with loved ones on the other side. My thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and coworkers xoxo
