WARREN COUNTY, MS – Deputy David Lambert succumbed to injuries sustained in an automobile accident one month earlier. He was responding to backup another deputy who called for assistance when he swerved to avoid a vehicle at the intersection of U.S. Highway 61 and Oak Ridge Road.

His patrol car overturned, causing him to suffer severe injuries. He was flown to a nearby hospital where he underwent several surgeries before succumbing to his injuries.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Deputy David Lambert and his brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement. May he rest in peace.

    "In The Line of Duty"

    What is the meaning of "In The Line Of Duty"
    It means that an officer made the Ultimate sacrifice.
    It means that someone took an officer's life.
    A hero has fallen.

    Officers who gave their all
    To protect and serve
    Have been killed by someone whom they swore
    To protect and serve.

    It means that their badge will no longer be on their chest
    And they will join
    "The Best Of The Best"

    It means that family and friends are left behind
    To deal with the lost of a loved one.
    Only having the memories of that loved one
    Close to their hearts.
    Something no one can ever take away.

    It means that family members will stand at the officers grave
    And wonder why ...
    Why would someone take an officer's life
    And leave them there to die?
    If we only knew.

    Today an officer will place their badge on their chest
    To fulfill the dreams of heroes killed
    "In The Line Of Duty"
