“Police officers take risks and secure the safety of fellow citizens, and they endure such risks and tolerate such inconveniences on behalf of strangers. Consequently, police work is one the more noble and selfless occupations in society. Making a difference in the quality of life is an opportunity that policing provides-and few other professions can offer.”

– International Association of Chiefs of Police

Please take a moment today to say a grateful prayer for Officer Pearson’s amazing recovery. He and his family have been through so much, and yet they continue to be gracious with their time to so many organizations in our community. Thank you doesn’t seem enough Officer Pearson. We are proud, humbled and grateful for you and your family. #spreadthejoy #realhero #SPDOur hearts are heavy due to the reminder of the sadness and worry that overcame us on Jan. 26, 2015, but we are also now grateful today. It is hard to believe that three years ago, we thought we may lose our brother, (now retired) Officer Aaron Pearson, after he was shot in the early hours of that Monday. We will never forget the acts his fellow officers and local medical personnel made to ultimately save his life, and we will never forget the determination and strength Aaron, his wife, Amanda, and his whole family showed us as he beat all odds and miraculously recovered from injuries that he was not expected to recover from.

Aaron’s life was spared that day, but each and every day, the Pearson family is reminded of what could have been. Life is not “back to normal,” but, with faith, they have found their new normal. Through therapy, Aaron has come a long way but has now reached his full potential and they are not to expect any further improvements. He has good days, and he has bad days. He was robbed of his short-lived law enforcement career which he was so passionate about. Please remember that law enforcement officers put their uniform on each day, knowing there’s a chance they, too, could face this danger, and they honestly do it to protect the citizens of this great City. This community wrapped their arms around the Pearson family three years ago, and we ask that you continue to keep them and all of our officers in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you all so much for your continued support.
