Fallen policeman buried in Georgia

Friends, family and brothers in blue gathered on October 15 to say goodbye to Alamo officer Dylan Harrison, who was shot dead in an ambush-style attack.

Relatives and other police officers finally said goodbye on Friday to a police officer from Central Georgia who was killed on duty.

A celebration of life was celebrated for Dylan Harrison, 26, in Dublin, where he lived with his wife and young son.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said Damien Ferguson shot and killed Harrison in an ambush-style attack at the Alamo City Police Department.

Investigators believe the shooting was in retaliation for Harrison arresting one of Ferguson’s friends at a traffic stop earlier that night.

The shooting took place during Officer Harrison’s first shift for the division.

According to his obituary, Harrison was a full-time narcotics agent with the Oconee Drug Task Force Agency. Before that he worked as a firefighter and emergency caller.

“Dylan wore this uniform with pride and honor,” said Rev. AJ Wright, a former police officer. “He has done more in his few years in law enforcement than most of us in our entire career. My husband represented righteousness and he was willing to give his life for his friends.

Those who knew Harrison said he had deep dimples in his cheeks and loved to joke, but he was also a sweet and caring person.

Dewayne Gibson, Harrison’s former football coach at West Laurens High School, said Harrison would often ask him to pray with him in the locker room.

“I don’t remember Dylan ever asking me to pray for him. It was always for someone else. That is a servant’s heart. That is a servant’s heart. Compassion, ”Gibson recalled.

Rev. Keith Smith urged those attending the service to live by Harrison’s example.

“If Dylan can give his life for all of us, then you can muster your courage to put down your anger,” said Rev. Smith. “We can be like Dylan and allow God to dwell in us. We can be like Dylan and forgive those who hate us for no other reason than that we are different. We can be like Dylan and be more committed to our community, to our family and to our country. ”

Harrison leaves behind his wife, Heather, and their six-month-old son, Brody.
