A Memphis girl whose father was killed in the line of police duty was recently escorted to a father-daughter dance by six of his law enforcement colleagues.

Six Memphis police officers accompanied 8-year-old Jewel Warren to the dance, the department said in a statement on Facebook. They said it was an honor to help out the family of Officer Tim Warren, who was fatally shot while responding to a domestic dispute in 2011.

“Officer Warren was survived by his wife and two children who will never be able to enjoy the every day experiences with their father/husband due to this horrific incident,” the statement said. “Warren’s life was taken while he was attempting to keep our city and the citizens of Memphis safe. His family and fellow officers will never forget his ultimate sacrifice.

“Warren’s daughter was treated to a trip to Sweet and Sassy, she received long stem roses from each officer, and was even able to catch a ride in a classic 1972 Cutlass Supreme,” it continued.

Holliday Flowers and Lynn Doyle Flowers donated boutonnieres for the officers, a corsage and the long stem roses. A local photographer, Amanda Swain, also donated her services in providing photos of the event, the statement said.

“We know we cannot replace Tim, but we can be there for his family when we are needed. It was truly a honor,” said Officer Amen, whose first name was not included in the Facebook post.

Another officer referred to only as “Officer Pfeil” said, “It was an honor to be able to attend this event and to help keep Tim’s memory alive.”
