Paul J. Fricke
April 2, 1973 – August 27, 2010

Paul Fricke enlisted in the United States Air Force upon graduating from high school and served in support of Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm. Upon being released from active duty he worked several years in the heating and cooling business before feeling the desire to again serve his country. In 2005 Paul attended the Eastern Missouri Police Academy and graduated with a Missouri 945-hour Class-A certification. Paul was hired as a part-time patrolman by the City of Hawk Point Missouri immediately upon graduation from the academy. Later that same year he was hired as a Warren County Deputy Sheriff. Within the first year of employment at the Sheriff’s Department Paul was promoted to Corporal and assigned as a patrol shift supervisor. Later he was also assigned duties as a Field Training Officer to assist in the training of new deputies. On May 3, 2007 Paul was appointed as Chief of Police for the Hawk Point Police Department. The fact he was promoted from his peer group at both agencies, and tasked with supervisory responsibilities is a testament to his character, professional ability, and work ethic. Known for his sense of humor Paul could always be counted upon to break the monotony of a slow shift, or the tension of a critical moment with a comment or joke certain to evoke a snicker or smile. He enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, attending St. Louis Cardinal ballgames, and spending time with his friends. Most importantly Paul enjoyed being a police officer and deputy sheriff. On August 27, 2010 he was killed in the line of duty in a motor vehicle accident. While at the Sheriff’s Department Paul was assigned the badge number of 458, which out of respect and remembrance will be permanently retired from service.
