Reflections for Sergeant Christopher D. Fitzgerald

As the daughter of a retired Philadelphia police sergeant, and the mother of a current Temple student, I’m heartbroken for Sgt. Fitzgerald’s loved ones. So senseless for this young man to be killed that way. RIP, Sgt. Fitzgerald. Thank you for your service to our city and our children at Temple. May you rest in grace and love, and shine down on all who knew and loved you.

I did not know Officer Fitzgerald, but his murder hits me especially hard because I am a two-time Temple University alumnus (undergrad and Law degrees). Temple students and alumni need to see the criminal justice system deal with the perpetuator firmly, fairly, and expeditiously, so that the Temple Police Department can continue to command the confidence of the campus community.

Officer Fitzgerald, losing any law enforcement officer is a blow to the entire blue family, but in our little subculture of college and university police, we feel it all the more. We're told we work in a 'safe' environment where nothing bad happens to us. This is proven false all too often. I'm very grateful to all who worked diligently to capture your murder.

We mourn your loss and celebrate your life and contributions to our profession. So long as your family keeps you forever in their hearts and minds, you will never truly be gone. We hold them in our hearts and prayers.

God Bless you, Brother and may your eternal rest be ever peaceful.
