39-year -old LT Cliff Rouse and 30-year-old Trooper First Class Chadwick LeCroy were both gunned down while on call. Both leave behind a wife and two children.

"Very, very scary," said wife of Thomas County Deputy Nagi Daniell.

Nagi Daniell is the wife of a Thomas County Sheriff's deputy and she says each day her husband goes to work she worries.

"I say a little prayer every morning when he leaves," said Daniell.

Daniell's husband has served with the sheriff's office for three years a profession she said she wouldn't want him to trade.

"I'm proud to be the wife of a law enforcement officer," said Daniell.

Deputy Daniell will soon change to the night shift ; the same shift both Rouse and LeCroy were working when they were killed.

"Whenever he comes home late, I always have this thought in the back of my mind he might be in danger," said Daniell.

"According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund; Nationally 162 officers were killed in the line of duty of those eight were from the state of Georgia."

"You never know what you'll come across you have to use safety measures," said Public Information Officer for Thomasville Police LT Eric Hampton.

"At the end of the day he comes home safe and sound and that's all I'm grateful for," said Daniell.
