Brother New,

May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And the rains fall soft upon your fields,
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

You’re Brothers in Blue

Officer New. Every year your name is read at the county annual law enforcement memorial service. Each year a bell is rung with the same clarity as the names of the officers recently fallen. Your sacrifice is eternal as is your reward. Thank you for you dedication and blessings on those who have survived you.
