Officer Gerald Harmon succumbed to a gunshot wound received three months earlier after apprehending two bootlegging suspects. He took the men into custody and walked them to a call box on Brook Road. As they waited for the patrol wagon to arrive one of the suspects produced a handgun and shot Officer Harmon in the chest. He succumbed to his wound three months later. The exact date of the shooting is unknown.

Officer Harmon had only been with the agency for approximately three months at the time of the shooting. He was survived by his wife and daughter.

Your heroism and service is honored today on the 91rst anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer. He was shot twice when ambushed on April 23rd when he was on a foot pursuit of two bank robbers, 86 years after you were killed.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
