Patriot Hero, Author,
Sheriff Jack McLamb Passes



Dear Friends of Jack McLamb,

It is with much deep sentiment that we write to advise that our much beloved friend and brother, Jack McLamb, passed away on Saturday, late afternoon, Indiana time. Though he is missed far more than any words can say, all who loved him are grateful to know that Jack is at last freed from the physical disabilities that increasingly plagued him, especially in these past few years. For the blessed relief that has come to him, we certainly have great reason to rejoice.

We now join with Jack's wife, Angie, and all his family in extending our deepest gratitude to each and all of you who, by means of your continuous outpouring of love and prayer, provided such comfort and upliftment, particularly during this past very difficult week - - and we can't help but feel somehow that all of that love and blessing was received personally by Jack as well, on the level of his inner spirit. Now that "Officer Friendly" is once again "back in the greatest of form" himself, be ready to receive the thanks and Blessings he's likely to send you!

A number of memorial services are being planned for Jack, the most immediate one taking place this coming week in SW Indiana. Should anyone be close enough to that area and wish to attend, feel free to contact us, by way of this email address or by calling (208) 935-7852 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (208) 935-7852 FREE  end_of_the_skype_highlighting, for further information. Concerning the other memorials to be held, we will advise later on.

Thank you again, and may God richly bless you all.

Bob and Theresa Huebner
Jim and Jean Hisaw, and
Carol Asher

Yes, a loss to us all.   I met him for the first time in the late 1980's.

The last time Liz, I and the kids saw him was a few years back.  He and Nancy Lord were guests at our home for our family's Passover Seder.

Although far more, Jack was the embodiment of what a police officer SHOULD be. 

For reference:

“The Peelian Principles”

These nine basic principles are often referred to as “The Peelian Principles.” Upon close examination of each of the Peelian principles, not only are direct connections to policing in today's world apparent, but often the nine principles are cited as the basic foundation for current law enforcement organizations and community policing throughout the world.

Many law enforcement agencies currently quote the Peelian Principles on their community websites as their own principles.

Sir Robert Peel 1788 - 1850
“The Founder of Modern Policing”   Peelian Principle 1 - “The basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder.”

Peelian Principle 2 - The ability of the police to perform their duties is dependent upon public approval of police actions.”

Peelian Principle 3 - Police must secure the willing co-operation of the public in voluntary observance of the law to be able to secure and maintain the respect of the public.”

Peelian Principle 4 - The degree of co-operation of the public that can be secured diminishes proportionately to the necessity of the use of physical force.”

Peelian Principle 5 - Police seek and preserve public favour not by catering to the public opinion but by constantly demonstrating absolute impartial service to the law.”

Peelian Principle 6 - “Police use physical force to the extent necessary to secure observance of the law or to restore order only when the exercise of persuasion, advice and warning is found to be insufficient.”

Peelian Principle 7 - “Police, at all times, should maintain a relationship with the public that gives reality to the historic tradition that the police are the public and the public are the police; the police being only members of the public who are paid to give full-time attention to duties which are incumbent on every citizen in the interests of community welfare and existence.”

Peelian Principle 8 - “Police should always direct their action strictly towards their functions and never appear to usurp the powers of the judiciary.”

Peelian Principle 9 - “The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it.”
