    in memory of Trooper Joshua D.Miller,
    "I am a Pennsylvania State Trooper, a soldier of the law, to me it is entrusted the honor of the force.
    I must serve honestly, faithfully, and if need be, lay down my life as others have done before me, rather than swerve from the path of duty. It is my duty to obey the law and enforce it without any consideration of class, color, creed or condition. It is my duty to be service to anyone who may be in danger or distress, and at all times so conduct myself that the honor of the force be upheld."
    Rest In Peace, Trooper Miller.
    You will always have a place in our hearts and you will never be forgotten. One hero for our state, the only hero in our hearts...

    I heard about the Caldwell County Deputies. I live two counties over. It makes you think. Its always good to remember that its not just another day at work. I urge each officer on the streets to, please, be careful out there! As a LEO myself, I have to keep myself and my partner in check. When you get relaxed, is when you are going to bed. NOT when you're approaching a vehicle on a traffic stop, or walking up to a house where dispatch advised no weapons involved!!! Thanks to all those who are here as LEO's or LEO's friends and family. My heart goes out to all of the friends and families of fallen officers! Thank you and God bless you all!

    Nags Head officer dies in crash on way to report of burglary
    Posted to: News North Carolina
    Sgt. Earl Murray

    A Nags Head police officer died in a crash this morning in the 3000 block of S. Croatan Highway on his way to a call for a burglary, town officials said. He is the first officer in the town to be killed in the line of duty.

    Sgt. Dulan Earl Murray Jr., 48, of Kitty Hawk, was on his way to check out the break-in about 3 a.m. when he lost control of his vehicle, went off the road and hit a utility pole near Nags Head Elementary School, a town news release says.

    Murray, who had been with the town since 1997, had more than 26 years of law enforcement experience, the release says.

    He leaves behind a wife and two daughters.

    In the release, Nags Head Mayor Renee Cahoon calls the loss of Murray “indescribable.”

    “Earl Murray was one of the finest, most dedicated officers we’ve ever had,” Cahoon said. “More importantly, though, he was one of the most dedicated family men we’ve ever known.”

    The crash is under investigation by the North Carolina Highway Patrol.

    LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -Law enforcement from throughout Southwest Louisiana and even out of state came together today in DeRidder to remember a fallen comrade-- Beauregard Sheriff's Deputy Detective Robbie Beane. Beane is being remembered as a dedicated public servant as well as a devoted family man.

    It was a day of sadness and mourning in Beauregard Parish as law enforcement and the community lay to rest one dedicated to protecting and serving others. Thirtyfour year old detective Robert "Robbie" Eugene Beane was killed in a car crash while on a training assignment in Shreveport.

    Those like James Thompson, who knew Beane, are heartbroken to have lost him. Thompson went to church with Beane. "(He)was a fine man who passed away and a strong leader in the church. Good praise and worship leader, just an all around good man. The whole community's heart broken because we lost a fine fella."

    Officer Down: Lawman Killed In The Line Of Duty
    Posted: 9:40 AM Apr 8, 2009
    Last Updated: 10:02 AM Apr 8, 2009
    Reporter: Heather King, WITN-TV,

    Lenoir County Sheriff's Detective Allen Pearson has died after a shoot-out on duty.
    It has been many years since an officer of the law in Eastern Carolina was killed by gunfire in the line of duty.

    According to the Officer Down Memorial web page, Rich Square Police Chief Joseph E. White was shot to death on duty on Sunday, July 16, 2000.

    The website says White, 61, was killed with his own .45 caliber service weapon gun. White was shot after stopping a car in connection to a possible gas drive-off at a local gas station. Jason Hebert was arrested for the murder in 2003, in Louisiana.

    The most recent death of a law enforcement officer on duty in Eastern Carolina occurred in June 2008. Deputy Steven Christoper Boehm of the Onslow County Sheriff's Office was struck by a vehicle and killed on June 14, 2008.

    The Officer Down Memorial website says a New Bern Police Detective was killed two days before Christmas in 2001 when he was off duty. Detective Donald Miller was shot and killed on December 23, 2001. The website says Miller, 33, confronted a man who was driving recklessly in the parking lot of a hospital. Miller was at the hospital after visiting his newborn baby. The site says the driver pulled out a gun and shot Miller in the head; he had been planning a shooting spree at the hospital.

    We cops

    We cops are a family.
    A special kind of family very few outside of law enforcement understand.
    As a family, when tragedy strikes
    We gather,
    We grieve,
    We go on.
    It’s what we do,
    It’s who we are
    It’s what our fallen brothers and sisters expect.
    It’s what makes us special
    It’s what makes us unique
    It’s what keeps us sane
    It’s what keeps us strong,
    It’s what keeps us loyal.
    It’s what we are made of,
    It’s what we live for,
    It’s what keeps us going.
    We never dwell on the past,
    We never lose our direction.
    We never forget
    This is who we are
    We are cops

    When God sent His angels to bring you home, He had His reasons. Someday we will be able to ask why, but for now, we offer prayers of peace and comfort to those left behind. RIP

    Last night I lay in bed
    My gut sick and sour
    pounding in my head
    tragedy struck this hour

    Knowing something was not right
    the void of not knowing
    kept awake half the night
    while red lights were glowing

    While the world lay sleeping
    we are alert and awake
    vigilant guard he was keeping
    making no mistake

    All of us connected by fate
    a brother now laid
    forever to rest on this date
    his oath and promise be paid

    St Michael Protect Us ...

    For we fight the good fight
    leaving our families behind
    kissing them good night
    going back to the grind

    Put ourselves in harms way
    so that others may rest
    knowing we keep evil at bay
    being the best of the best

    The blue line has been stained
    with the blood of a brother
    all feel sorrow and are pained
    all feel the loss of another

    St Michael Protect Us ...
    Hunt them down we yell
    none will take rest
    find the evil from hell
    desecrated our crest

    Black band across shield
    blue blood ties us together
    great strength we do wield
    stay strong in bad weather

    St. Michael Protect ALL of US ...

    "The Final Inspection"

    The policeman stood and faced his God,
    Which must always come to pass.
    He hoped his shoes were shining.
    Just as brightly as his brass.

    "Step forward now, policeman.
    How shall I deal with you?
    Have you always turned the other cheek?
    To My church have you been true?"

    The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
    "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
    Because those of us who carry badges
    can't always be a saint.

    I've had to work most Sundays,
    and at times my talk was rough,
    and sometimes I've been violent,
    Because the streets are awfully tough.

    But I never took a penny,
    That wasn't mine to keep....
    Though I worked a lot of overtime
    When the bills got just too steep.

    And I never passed a cry for help,
    Though at times I shook with fear.
    And sometimes, God forgive me,
    I've wept unmanly tears.

    I know I don't deserve a place
    Among the people here.
    They never wanted me around
    Except to calm their fear.

    If you've a place for me here,
    Lord, It needn't be so grand.
    I never expected or had too much,
    But if you don't.....I'll understand.

    There was silence all around the throne
    Where the saints had often trod.
    As the policeman waited quietly,
    For the judgment of his God.

    "Step forward now, policeman,
    You've borne your burdens well.
    Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
    You've done your time in hell."
