COPS In Memoriam

Floyd enjoyed traveling with the team to Arkansas, Arizona, and Nevada where he ministered to men and women incarcerated in the prisons.

Floyd had a knack for barbequing. He volunteered his services when COPS ministry hosted events where we fed those attending our events. Floyd retired from the Los Angeles Police Department after 25 years of service. He was hired on as a Range Master for the Riverside Police Department for approximately eight years and he retired in July 2016.

Rick Albee

In 2015, COPS ministry lost a dear friend. Brother Rick Albee went home to be with the Lord. Rick was a faithful servant and committed associate to COPS ministry.

He ministered to men incarcerated in California, Arkansas, Arizona and to women incarcerated in Nevada. He also ministered to the men at U Turn for Christ and he was invited to several men conferences associated with churches.

Rick had an incredible testimony! He was involved in an “Officer involved shooting” where his partner was killed. Rick exchanged gunfire with the suspect and Rick killed the suspect. It was the look of terror in the suspect’s eyes that scared Rick causing him to realize that he too needed a Savior. That shooting caused Rick to search for someone or something to fill that empty void in his heart. He was invited to a couples conference and it was there that he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Rick retired from the Riverside Police Department as a Lieutenant after 29 years of service.
