Double Oak Police Beat – February 2017

Double Oak Police Chief Derrick Watson

As this article is being written the family, friends and co-workers of Little Elm Detective Jerry Walker are preparing to celebrate his life of service.  Detective Walker faithfully served the community of Little Elm and Denton County and was well known and genuinely respected by citizens and co-workers.

On Tuesday, January 17, 2017 at approximately 3 p.m., Detective Walker, along with many fellow officers, responded to a man with a gun call.  Detective Walker selflessly placed his own person between the community and an evil person.  Unfortunately Detective Walker was struck down by gun fire and passed away at the hospital.

Detective Walker thank you for your good works.  Thank you for your service to our community.  Thank you for being willing to stand between those who choose to do evil and the innocent.  Your actions, and your life, mattered.

Chief Watson
