End of Watch

“When a police officer is killed, it’s not an agency that loses an officer, it’s an entire nation.” -Chris Cosgriff, ODMP Founder

POLICEMANS PRAYER

Walk with him tonight
Dear Lord
Along each darkened sreet
Walk with him tonight
Dear lord
Along his lonely beat
Keep him happy through the night
And please make sure he’s warm
And guide him to a sheltering door
In case there comes a time a storm
And let him know
Though he’s not here
My prayers are free from fright
Because, Dear Lord ,
I, know so well
You’re on his beat tonight
