Rest in Peace Police Officer Glenn Homs. Thank You for your Service and Sacrifice protecting the citizens of Irving, Texas.

I Pray for Peace for your Family, Friends and Co-Workers. I also Pray that the hounds of hell forever gnaw on the soul of your murderer. May he forever be plagued with horrible nightmares of his flesh burning off as he burns in the lake of fire. May his name be removed from the book of life.

Amen

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

Glenn,
I still think of you often. A piece of me died when you left us. I was honored to be on the Tactical Team with you. I often think about all the great times we shared on and off duty and still laugh. You were a good friend and brother to me.
Always, Ben

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 19th anniversary year of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

I pray for the solace of all those that love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.

Glenn,
I was looking over a friends page and thought of you. I remember the good times we had early on before our police years working together. This year as I head out on the Police Unity Tour I will think of you as we begin our journey to DC.

"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.

Glenn, yesterday we buried another promising young police officer. Much like you Andrew was an exceptional officer who had his life cut short. While I was delivering a tribute to Andrew at the candlelight vigil I could not help but think of you. It was my privelege to serve with you. You may be gone but I will never forget you.

Glenn, You are also remembered on this day, the day after a fellow officer from your agency was killed. I have heard your story and seen your photo in the hall. You are thought of often, and so is your family. Thank you for your dedication and service.

Please watchover the Irving police officers. Please ask God for their protection as they continue in service. God bless you and yours.

Glenn was a good guy that loved his job as a police officer. He was well thought of in the department and his sacrifice will not be forgotten. God bless his family.
I was temporarily assigned to personnel when Glenn was hired. He was also assigned to personnel awaiting the start of the next academy class. We talked quite a bit during that time. He wanted more than anything to be a good cop.....and that he was.

Glenn was a good friend. I still think of him from time to time. I remember he loved his wife, his children and he loved his job. We were rookies together and I am glad I had a chance to know him.

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer. Today, July 3, 2003 we dedicated the shift to the memory of P.O. Glen Homs who died on this date 10 years ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Officer Homs' sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Glenn,

I just want you to know that each and every day I always think of you and your warm smile. I also remember the way your face lit up whenever you saw your beautiful wife, Christy, and the way her face lit up whenever she saw you. You were a neat person and full of life. You will forever live in the hearts of those who had the priviledge to work with you.
