We all know it can happen, when we put our colors on.
It only takes an instant, then one of us is gone.
Day to day we walk the beat, in God we put our faith.
‘Cause we’re the law inside the wall, we keep the public safe.
You’ve done the job that few can do, your shift is at an end.
Farewell my Brother, rest in peace, on you we could depend.
-Lieutenant Larry Peoples, Florida Department of Corrections
