    Capt. Tim Bergeron - Terrebonne Parish, LA

    Well, we lost another one of the good ones this past weekend.

    Tim was one of the all around nice guys.

    I knew him through the D.A.R.E. program. He was an awesome D.A.R.E. Instructor, and I never saw Tim without a smile on his face.

    Yet another reason why I hate the stupidity that is Mardi Gras.

    Rest in peace, Tim. You will be missed.

    Deputy killed escorting Mardi Gras float | HoumaToday.com



    HOUMA, LA -- A captain with the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office was killed when his motorcycle collided with a car today (Sunday morning) while escorting a Mardi Gras float, authorities said.

    Capt. Timothy Bergeron was killed in a traffic accident, on La. Highway 311 Houma, this morning while escorting Mardi Gras floats on his TPSO motorcycle. The accident is being investigated by La. State Police Troop C.

    Bergeron, a 25-year veteran of the Sheriff's Office, was assigned to the agency's motorcycle unit in 1999. He was promoted to Captain last year and supervised school resource officers and deputies in the D.A.R.E. program. He leaves behind a wife and six children.

    His duties also extended to public relations, said sheriff's Maj. Malcolm Wolfe. Bergeron represented the agency at neighborhood watch meetings, gave presentations and took photographs at special events.

    "He was very dedicated to the office," Wolfe said.

    Bergeron died at Terrebonne General Medical Center. Sheriff Vernon Bouregois, who had been in Miami to attend today's Super Bowl game, returned to be with deputies and the officer's family.

    According to preliminary accounts from Terrebonne officials, Bergeron was escorting a float from the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center parking lot to the Southland Mall, on his motorcycle. His blue lights, they said, were flashing and he was using his siren, what police call "running code."

    Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
