  • Officer Funerals

    I think its sad that when a police officer dies in the line of duty, every officer within 100 miles is not there for him/her and the department. Dont send one representitive, send everyone who can go. We buried a fallen Dallas Police Officer today, and I felt the law enforcement community failed. There were not enough officers there today. Have we turned into a bunch of individuals who happen to wear the same uniform?

    For some. Maybe even most.

      Officers usually have to get permission to attend funerals in uniform and with official vehicles. Your complaint may be with the officers' agencies, not the officers themselves.

        How many DPD were there? How many non-DPD?
        If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason.

          Of course it is sad, it is a tradegy on many levels. How many officers did attend? You are not over simpifying the admistrative and logistical issues involved in "sending everyone who can go", you are not even addressing them.

              They're burying an officer that was killed last week here, works for a department of 145. They expect over 200 vehicles to be involved in the procession.

                It was reported on the news that there were 4000 people there. Couldn't tell you the break down. I did hear that there were 2 officers representing NYPD.

                I don't know exactly how to describe it, beautiful doesn't seem to be the right word... the speakers did a wonderful job. I don't know where the police chaplain is from but he spoke very well. May Mark rest in peace.

                        I pray that I never have to attend an officer funeral. If I could get through my career without it happening, I will be very thankful.

                          It brings tears to my eyes to see news like this. Like Mr. CO, I pray as well that I never have to attend the funeral of a fallen officer. May he rest in peace. He is a hero, no matter what the turnout at the funeral is.

                            When my youngest brother was killed in the line of duty( thats his picture),the turnout out was unbeliveable, cops came other other states and all over my state, I was impressed.

                            Since then I have attended others killed in the line of duty in my area. I don't like going but I feel obliged to have go and pay my respects and show support for a fellow LEO. It really gets me whenever I hear here the bagpipes playing Amazing grace, the memories of all those that made that supreme sacrifice. You all stay safe out there.

                              Over 4000 Officers from surrounding agencies. The procession had over 79 different agencies in it. DPD did awesome with the funeral. I was there, from what i saw, Oklahoma City OK PD , Houston PD, Austin PD, Round Rock PD, Sugarland PD, San Antonio PD, Corpus Christi PD, DPS, and alot of surrounding agencies. Everyone there to salute him.
