On behalf of the Ohio Attorneys General Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Special Police Officer Maurica Manyan and the extended law enforcement family of the District of Columbia Public Library Office of Public Safety, District of Columbia.



End of Watch Thursday, August 4, 2022.



Rest in Peace sister 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

Our prayers and thoughts are with this young Officer and her family. May the Lord take this Officer to be with Him as He takes her to the place prepared for her among her departed Police Brothers and Sisters who are in the Honor Guard of our Lord. There she will be in Eternal Glory. It is always so sad to see a young Officer go down in the Line. This is especially sad when the death is the result of "Friendly Fire." Our prayers are also for all the Officers in her training class. May God bless and heal them all.

Heavenly Father, You are Compassionate and Merciful. None of our nation’s law enforcement officers leave home without the fear of not returning at the end of their watch. It is a fear that is lived daily. Unfortunately, the worst does sometimes come to pass, and lives are left shattered. Lord God, bless and keep the hearts and souls of those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. Wipe away the tears from their eyes. Soothe their pain and bind up their emotional wounds through the wounds of Your beloved Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. In His name, I pray. Amen.
