Kaufman, Texas –Friday Mary 7, 2010, Ms. Sherri Faulk and her son James presented Sheriff David A. Byrnes with blue ribbons for each Sheriffs Office vehicle, from the Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) organization. This organization distributes over 1 million blue ribbons to local law enforcement agencies, as a reminder of those who have made that sacrifice. Citizens are encouraged to show their support for local law enforcement during this week by tying blue ribbons to your vehicle’s car antennas.

Ms. Faulk and her son James are trying to keep alive the wishes of her husband Jimmy Faulk, who passed away in 2007, from an injury related to the line of duty. Mr. Faulk was with the Dallas County Sheriffs Office for twenty three years as a training officer. Ms. Faulk stated, “He always enjoyed being very involved with the community, playing Santa Cop, and volunteering for any other worthy project he could get involved in.”

Ms. Faulk tries to do something yearly, such as Teddy Bears on Patrol, Toy Drives at Christmas time, and is currently working on a non-profit organization to be set up in honor of her late husband.

Sheriff Byrnes stated, “This is a time for the community to not only honor the officers, but their families as well, who have paid the ultimate price to keep our cities and county safe.”
