Reflections for Police Officer Jimmy Dale Halcomb

I wish I could express how very special a man Jimmy was, my husband and my best friend. He was a Southern Gentleman. His family was his world. His 3 daughters are all grown now. The youngest, who was born 2 months after his death, is blessed with a wonderful husband. It is amazing how much she reminds me of her father. Not in looks but the personality is exactly the same. His humor is foremost.

We miss you Jimmy. I will always love you. One day we will be together, again. Soon it will be 30 years since that horrible Good Friday night. April 16, 2006 will fall on Easter Sunday. I don't know what that will bring but my day will be spent reflecting on how very much I miss you still. Your girls are all doing well and miss there Dad. I try to help police survivors cope with their loses but it is so hard. Seeing their pain only rekindles my own. But I will do whatever I can to help.

Let me thank all who have written such wonderful words. Just be sure I will always remember. God Bless you all. God Bless all survivors.

I remember this day it was Easter Sunday, my wife had one of your children in her Prue-school class & your wife was also pregnant at the time. A very sad day, God Bless you & your wife & siblings. God Bless all.

I remember when this incident happened and the sorrow I felt for this fallen officer. I was a kid and had aspirations of being a police officer one day. I would be later reminded of the Lombard and Carey Sts. sniper incident in my training at the Academy for the Baltimore City Police Department (1980)and later when I became a member of our Crisis Negotiation Team. This officer's name and his sacrifice has never been forgotten to anyone trained in Baltimore or to those of us in Negotiations. My condolences to the family - and to his colleagues of the Baltimore City PD, and to his friends.

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. Any officer who dies in the line of duty will always be remembered for his sacrifice. You died a hero. Rest in peace Officer Halcomb.
