Reflections for Lieutenant Roger Peck Fleming

It was 30 years ago today that I lost my dad, and since then, I have graduated with a master's degree in clinical mental health counseling, where I help people every day. I think you’d be proud. I’ve also gotten married to the love of my life. He’s my protector and safe place. I think you’d like him. I love you and miss you every day.

Thanks to everyone who still leaves reflections on this page. I graduated college in 2013 and have just recently graduated with my masters degree in May 2018. My dad has missed a lot, which has been getting hard lately because of all the milestones he will miss within the coming years, but i know he would be here if he could.

Mackenzie...I thought of you last week. Wondered how you were faring as you weathered yet another anniversary of your dad becoming an angel. I often wonder how you are doing and how life is treating you. And when I think of you, say a little prayer. And though we have never met over the course of the 10 years that I have posted here, I still see you as my little sister. I am sending lots of love, hugs and thoughts of peace your way.

Much love to you, your big sister in Blue,

It's hard to believe that almost 10 years ago, I began leaving notes for you on this page. I think of you often and pray that you are doing well. I am sure that you have graduated college by now and I know that your angel daddy is so proud of his little girl, now young lady. Know that you remain in my heart. Sending much love and many prayers your way.

I remember that day. Ever time I pass that Area. We got a look out for stolen vehicle at the 07:00 Roll Call. I was at the intersection of Hobart & 4th St. N.W. in marked vehicle. When it ran a red light. I along with other M.P.D.C. officers apprehended them after a 15 min.foot chase. Because they had switched clothes. I could not positively identify them. But both agreed to go with P.G.P.D. I was told later. They where telling on each other before they crossed over to Maryland. Rest in Peace

I think of you often Roger. You were my sergeant and friend. We were all young and full of passion for the job back then. I will always remember your patience and steady leadership. I'll see ya when I see ya.

Thank you to everyone for leaving such heart felt reflections. A lot has changed in these past 18 years, i have just finished my first year of college and wish every day for my dad to seen how much I've grown. Not a day doesn't go by that i don't think about him. A lot of love goes out to all of the Prince George's Office's both past, present, and future from our family. Any other stories or thoughts, or anything about my dad would be very much appreciated. I really don't know too much about my dad and it's really nice to hear all the good things people remember. May my dad's memory be kept alive in everyone's hearts.

Roger I was the first rookie you ever trained, and it was an honor to have been trained by you. I remember like it was yesterday how I much I cried when I saw your vehicle after your accident. We spent many fun days working together and you taught me a great deal on how to be a good officer. We had a great relationship and squad. You are severely missed, and I pray that you rest in peace.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
