I remember you backing me up on several calls. I remember us both working the undercover detail that indirectly led to your accident. I remember hugging your mother in the days that followed and telling her you were a strong officer who would bounce back in no time. And even though your fight has ended, I remember you as a young, eager officer who weathered violence and danger before that last, fateful shift. Rest easy Carlos, I'll always remember you as you were that first amazing year as an officer.

The wail of sirens are fading
The pain it is no more
In waves of peace you're wading
Upon a distant shore

The part of you, you left here
In person or in mind
As family we hold so dear
To give to strangers in kind

Rest peacefully!

On behalf of the Ohio Attorneys General Bureau of Criminal Identification & Investigation, our thoughts and prayers are with the immediate family of Police Officer Carlos Taylor and the extended law enforcement family of the Montgomery Police Department, Alabama.

End of Watch Friday, June 30, 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.
