RIP Sgt Horne. For better or worse, you were the reason I didn't leave DeKalb 16 years ago.

R.I.P I did not know you but a life taken should never go unnoticed. May your family find peace through this difficult time.

Sgt Horne was my 1st supervisor (center evening watch)way back in 1991 and he taught me a lot. Very sorry to hear about this and my prayers are with his family.

I was shocked to hear this news. Wayne was an excellent officer a "cops cop". Wayne taught me a great deal when we worked south CID together many years ago. He will be missed. Please keep Wayne's daughter Jessica and the rest of his family in your prayers

God Bless you Sir. You are the reason I have not left where I am today. You were a high regarded mentor and have earned the respect of many. If only everyone could lead as you did. Rest in peace.

The news of Wayne's death hit me like a locomotive. Janice, oh my girl! May the Lord bless and keep you and make His face to shine upon you and give you peace. The emotional response to hearing about Wayne's death is way more than I ever expected I would have had. To Jessica, and yes.. for you too Gwen. Peace be with you. My prayers are with you all. How much time has passed. But how short it really is. My prayers are with you JJ. Much love, Leah

I had the utmost respect for Wayne. He was an officer and a teacher. Sadly those of his era are all gone now.
I was one of his supervisors at South Precinct when he was sent there after Hanson's witch hunt. To be honest, I dreaded the first roll call. I just knew he would have an attitude, rightfully so.
He ended up being one of the best officers I ever had work for me. He was a professional. He did his job and he did it well.
If only the department could have 2 or 3 Waynes on each watch in each precinct. This place would rock!
So sad. It breaks my heart.

I sure wish I could turn back time, I remember many of times eating dinner with him and chewing the fat.
What a great supervisor to work for, he will truly be missed by me and others.
Mike hang in there, you too are in my prayers and missed as well.
Such a damn shame, go in peace Wayne.

I had just come to Center Evenings after a long 10 months in CID. I was lucky to get back on the street and have Wayne as a supervisor. We had a long talk because he knew I was (A) lost on center directionally challenged if its a word (B) not happy about not getting back to North. Turns out we had a great time working evenings. I greatly appreciated him taking the time to have that talk. It was fun working with a supervisor who would work alongside of you. Whether it was going to an 87 with you or getting out of his unit to help you push a car out of the roadway. We all remeber the superviors who called you to 59 and then drive off not Sgt. W.Horne. He didn't mind getting his hands dirty with you. A great guy to have when you went to a 27 too! I do remember the evening a perp hit the ground behind Dekalb Jr College ( ga perimeter college for you young guys) and as Sarge said "he zig when he should of zaged" and Sgt Horne got him with his crown vic door..instant hood ornament... Old time police work at its finest! Those were great days at DKPD ! I pray Heavens Gates will be wide open for you. Rest in Peace.

RIP my friend.

Sorry to hear that brother. I knew Wayne the entire time I was with the S.O.

If you called for help and you knew Sgt. Horne was on the way. Only one thing remained , just hang on because when he got their it was over for the bad guy. What a hell of a supervisor he was and protected the troops. Its sad I can only think of a few supervisors who follow in his foot steps.

Along with Sgt Zade Harper, Sgt Horne was among my first supervisors when i came to evening watch at Center precinct. What a great time we had. These guys showed me how to be a great supervisor. Sgt Horne, thank you so much for the memories. Evening watch rocked. I will never forget the teasing I endured from you and then Sgt Whittington. You guys were a riot. Nothing but fun and tremendous teachable moments.

I only wish that you lived to see what a great job your fellow former Navy Seals did to bin Laden. You would have been proud.

R.I.P. Sir, you will be truly missed and never forgotten.

It seems as if there have been quite a few of these remembrances posted lately. To many in fact. Wayne is now in good company, he has joined some of the finest men and women to ever wear blue and pin on a badge. As with others I, too received well needed direction from Wayne Horne when I first came to center precinct. Wayne was a true leader in the sense that he lead from the front, not the rear. He was a good cop, a great supervisor and most important, a friend. Many of the old guard have gone on now. Heavens streets are safe. He had some true, old school real cops waiting to greet him. You'll be missed Wayne Horne, you'll be greatly missed...1042

It is good to see so many of our Center Eve Watch guys coming forward to remember an outstanding COP and Sgt. I will always remember the good times we had as a team and learning from one of the best. At the time I didnt know I was learning from one of the best. To tell you the truth, we had a lot of that from our Sgt's at the time. That was one hell of a good group. Rest in peace Sgt Horn. Say hi to Charlie Nelson and Zeke Harper and others that have passed. We are doing our best down here to build this place back up.

JJ, I am so sorry that I did not get to attend Wayne's services. I will miss him greatly even though we did not see each other muck since leaving DeKalb. Just know that those of us who knew Wayne and know you will greatly miss him. Just know that you and he will be in many officer's ,both active and retired, thoughts and prayers. If you nee anything just let Mike known and he knows how to contact me and my wife.

To all that have spoke of my brother, I thank you. I am Wayne's little sister. Wayne touched so many lifes in positive ways. From Clayton PD to Dekalb PD to Devry. To me Wayne was just my big brother... a son to my parents. We still can't believe he has gone. I was very proud of Wayne and his work.I will forever think of him and listen to his words of strenght still guiding me. I will see you again Wayne,know I love you. To Dekalb PD, thank you again.

My heart goes out to the Sergeant's family. May his good soul rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. He is a real hero. It is never easy to lose a loved one. I'd suggest the families to look into www.deathletters.org. The grieving process is a long and painful one but knowing someone is going through the same thing gets it a little less difficult.
