Linda, I wanted to let you know how proud I am to have been one of Joe's friends and confidents over his law enforcement career. He was such a great guy. I remember years ago when his Dad died and how proud he was to follow in his footsteps. Joe loved his community and proudly wore the badge. He loved you and his kids. My sincere condolences to your family. He will be missed but his legacy will continue as long as his memories are shared. God bless...

Heavenly Father, I come before You today grieved in heart over the divisions in our country; the United States of America. I grieve for every life lost to violence, regardless of color or creed. And I especially grieve this day over the senseless deaths of America’s Peace Officers whose sworn duty is to protect us from harm. Please grant comfort and hope to their families. I know from the Holy Scriptures in Romans 13 that Peace Officers have a sacred task, to enforce laws that protect the innocent and punish the guilty. I pray that You will protect them as they serve us. Give them wisdom, discernment, and a deep desire to serve You. Please surround every Peace Officer in our nation, the United States of America, with battalions of warring angels to protect them from harm. We stand together in the powerful and mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ against every work of Satan intended to inflict injury and death on our Protectors. May Satan’s power be thwarted, in Your mighty and holy name, and his plans exposed by Your Light. Lord Jesus, I know that Your word teaches us that in You there is neither Jew nor Greek, neither slave nor free, neither male nor female. All superficial distinctions between us have been abolished by Your sacrifice on the cross. By Your grace and power, lead us into a new day of racial harmony in our country, a day in which Your name is again lifted high in our nation, the United States of America, and the rule of law is honored by all. Please grant us spiritual, political, and cultural leaders who will speak to us with Your wisdom and Your truth. Please renew us in heart, mind, and spirit that we may once again be “One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”. In the mighty and holy name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and by His authority, I pray! Amen.

"And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said, “Here I am! Send me.” [Isaiah 6:8 ESV]

On behalf of the Ohio Attorneys General Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Reserve Corporal Joseph Johnson and the extended law enforcement family of the Nyssa Police Department, Oregon.

End of Watch Saturday, April 15, 2023.

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.
