I, and many members of the Bainbridge, Georgia – Decatur County community gathered on Sunday, Aug. 24, 2014 to bid farewell and pay our last respects to Director Bainbridge Public Safety Department – Retired, James V. “Jabo” Duke.
At the interment, along with Masonic Rites being conducted, the Bainbridge Public Safety Department Honor Guard piloted the ceremony. I watched in admiration as the rites were performed with exacting detail, military precision and an upmost display of professionalism.
To the Director of Bainbridge Public Safety Department, Eric Miller, the Bainbridge Public Safety Department Honor Guard and all other law enforcement personnel participating, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for their outstanding performance in the service that laid our beloved leader, “Jabo”, to rest. You make me proud!
Larry E. Funderburke
Retired Director of Bainbridge Public Safety
