State police appreciate support for fallen officer

I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the citizens of Blair, Bedford and Huntingdon counties.

I have been a member of the Pennsylvania State Police for more than 22 years and was humbly moved by the show of support by citizens, law enforcement and emergency responders at the recent funeral for Trooper Landon Weaver.

Numerous colleagues also spoke about the show of support and how it moved them to tears.

I grew up in Saxton, Bedford County, and couldn’t have been more proud to see those who grew up around me withstand the cold temperatures and show their respect for Trooper Weaver.

Losing a member is painful and upsetting.

We felt that pain ripple throughout the law enforcement community the day Trooper Weaver was taken from us.

Driving along the funeral procession route was overwhelmingly emotional and inspiring as it gave us hope and an appreciation of the citizens we serve.

We felt loved and supported, something we needed more than anyone could imagine.

To all of our law enforcement partners — local, state, federal and around the United States — that supported the Pennsylvania State Police during this difficult time, thank you.

To Macy and the entire Weaver family, we will not forget Trooper Weaver or you.  You will always be a part of the PSP family.

Rest in peace, Trooper Landon Weaver.

Your brothers and sisters will take it from here.
