No amount of words despite their sincerity can ever replace what the family, friends, and communities that were loved and served by Chief Pimentel lost on August 23, 2014. As if serving as a leader in law enforcement for 43 years was not more than enough, Chief Pimentel fought to keep the freedom and rights we all enjoy in this great nation shining brightly as an example to the rest of the world by serving in our armed forces.

As a recruit 5 weeks into the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department Academy Class #403, I will be honored to serve my community in law enforcement much in the same way that Chief Pimentel devoted his time and energy towards his career. My greatest wish is to be the type of leader and man that Chief Pimentel subscribed to being each day of his extraordinary life.

To the Chief's family and loved ones, I can only say that the law enforcement community mourns the loss of our brother with you. I am proud to dedicate the rest of my training and future career to the memory of Chief Michael Pimentel.
