Best Friend, College, and Community: LUKE TRARON POLICE NEW BERN, NC OUR HEARTSANDPRAVERS ARE WITH OUR FALLEN BROTHER OFFICER ALEXANDER THALMANN. s HAMILY. us MARINE CORPS, ANI THE NEW BERN POLICE DEPARTMENL unit orm humor POLICE NEW BERN, NC BLUE LINE Officer Alexander Thalmann New Bern Police Department, NC EOW 03/31/2014 Three years ago today I lost my best friend. Alexander Edward Thalmann. Alex enlisted in the United States Marine Corps, completing his training at MCRD Parris Island on 5 May, 2011. He served with Combat Logistics Battalion 451 of the 4th Marine Logistics Group. Alex completed Basic Law Enforcement Training at Beaufort County Community College in June of 2013. He joined the New Bern Police Department in August of 2013. He was honored and proud to serve his community as a police officer. Charismatic and exceptionally wise beyond his young age, he is loved and will be missed by everyone his life touched. On 28 March 2345hours, Officer Thalmann had stopped a subject who was acting suspicious. Keeping to his oath to protect all, Ofc. Thalmann simply wanted to make sure this man was okay and ascertain his reasons for acting the way he was. This should have been no big deal, stop, talk, and then be on your way. That was not to be. As Ofc. Thalmann and the subject were speaking, all of a sudden the man took off running. Brother Alex called for assist and the foot chase was on. With no warning, and as fellow Officer Justin R. Wester, showed on scene, the suspect pulled out a handgun, turned toward the Officers, and began firing his weapon. Officer Thalmann was struck by gunfire to his face. Officer Wester was shot in his leg. The Officers fired back, killing the gunman. Both Officers were transported to the hospital. Ofc. Wester, who has 28 months on the force, was treated for his through-and-through wound and released the next day. Ofc. Thalmann was critical but was starting to show signs of stabilization the next day and he continued to fight tough to survive, Sadly, and with a heavy heart, that was not to be … this proved to be our Brother’s final battle … Police Officer Alexander Thalmann succumbed to his wounds and was pronounced just after 1300hours 31 March 2014 with his family by his side. He was my friend, my hero, my brother. alexthalmann nbpd officeralexanderthalmann newbern thinblueline brotherhood badgeofhonor brothersofthebadge protectingthesheep police sheriff sheepdogs statepolice trooper thinblueline cops family lawenforcement
