PC Barker was the officer who lost his life today whilst protecting people in one of the flooded ares of Cumbria. He was a traffic bobby, by all accounts a fair-minded and excellent bobby, highly regarded and respected by all those who knew him

I didn't know him personally or work with him but nonetheless he was a colleague of mine. My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time.

I take it that you are a Serving police officer? I watch the news this morning and heard the guy was missing, I hear he had a wife and four children, he died keeping others out of danger just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

God bless you Billy Barker rest in piece.

Indeed I am a serving police officer. Thanks for your comments. Yes, a married man with four children, aged between 8 & 16. No disrespect but I prefer to think he was in the right place at the wrong time, given that he was protecting others from danger.

A POLICE OFFICER'S PRAYER

Lord I ask for courage

Courage to face and
Conquer my own fears...

Courage to take me
Where others will not go...

I ask for strength

Strength of body to protect others
And strength of spirit to lead others...

I ask for dedication

Dedication to my job, to do it well
Dedication to my community
To keep it safe...

Give me Lord, concern
For others who trust me
And compassion for those who need me...

And please Lord

Through it all
Be at my side...
