There are but two persons who protect the sinful human race from destroying itself. One is God's Holy Spirit. The other is the Peace Officer. Without them, we would all perish at each other's hands.
You were called into this profession and our Lord and Savior has blessed you because:
According to Romans 13.1-5...
God ordains the Peace Officer’s profession.
The Peace Officer is sent by God.
The Peace Officer is vested with God's authority to enforce the law.
A Peace Officer's badge is to be honored by us, because it is honored by God.

You gave the ultimate sacrifice, your life for your fellow man, while serving, defending, and protecting others in your community.

To the family of Chief Verlon Lemaster and the Grant Police Department, your extended family of Law Enforcement Officers grieves with you during this time. I pray that God will wrap his loving arms around each of you and comfort you during this most difficult time.

To all my brothers and sisters, please remember the fallen officers we have lost. Remember the men and women who died trying to make this world a safer and better place for us all to live in.
May God be with you every day, please remember, we are a part of the largest family in the world and when one hurts we all hurt.

Though our badges and uniforms may be different, our mission is the same. Rest in peace with our other fallen Brothers and Sisters. We will continue the fight in your honor.

Florida Deputy Sheriff

God Speed, Brother.

Rest in peace my brother—You will not be forgotten. You have done your duty.

You, your family, and all those that have been affected by your passing are in my family’s prayers.

See you some day my brother.

"And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm." Go in peace. For you the storm is over. God bless you and your family for your sacrifice.

To the family and co workers of Chief Lamaster,I know that human words can not stop the pain you feel tonight or the pain and tears to come. But rest in Gods loving hands and he will carry you though. Chief, take your rest, you have fought the good fight you have ran a good race and stayed the course. May God Bless Chief Lamaster's family and co workers. Brothers and Sisters of the Blue line be careful out there each and every day.

To the family, friends, and co-workers of Chief Lemaster,
I check the web site daily, and before I do I say a prayer that there will be no more new names. Well it has been since the 5th of this month that we lost a hero, and today another hero got his wings. I am saddened to hear of your loss. There are no words I can say that will take away your pain, but I know how bad it hurts, I have been there. Please know that you are all in my prayers. God only takes the BEST!!! I wish you peace and comfort in your time of tragedy.
We will NEVER forget the heros that pay the ultimate sacrafice for us. A job well done, thy good and faithful servant.

You were always there for anyone who needed your help. Grant will have another Chief but he will never have the impact you had on the community. Your dedication to the job will never be matched. You will be severly missed by the citizens and fellow law enforcement officers. It was a pleasure to have worked with you.

Chief Lemaster, I proudly salute you as you now patrol the streets of Heaven. Rest in Peace my brother.

Alabama has been hit so hard the past couple of years with line of duty deaths. My heart and prayers are with family, friends and co-workers of Chief LeMaster - he is truly a hero. Thank you, Chief, for your dedication and your service. May you be richly blessed for making the ultimate sacrifice for your community.

To many times I sit in front the this computer and again see another "Brother in blue" taken from us. Many times this grown man starts to get teary eyed as starts to think of his wife and family. Everyday that I work I turn on the net and come directly to this website. Some of the guys tell me that I am too paranoid and that I am too Cautious. Sometimes, God choses to take one of his "Protectors" home regardless how carful we are. I feel that God has Chosen to take Chief of Police Verlon Lemaster home because he has spent him time in hell and now he needs him standing next to the throne. As a grown man and being wearing the uniform for a unappreciated 81/2 years, I still get excited to come to work. If God choses to take me from this earth, then I know that I that I am going to another place that where Chief Verlon Lemaster is still patroling the streets of Gold and keeping them safe. My god be with his family and give them some type of understanding and comfort.

Remember, "the thin blue line!!!!"

Dear Warrior, I'm sadened to know that we have lost another officer in the line of duty. But, you did what you do because you chose it. You chose to walk the thin blue line between warrior and servant and we are grateful for your sacrifice. May God provide your family with swift closure in their loss, and to yourself, swift winds to your next assignment in heaven, as you walk those streets under his command. A huge reward is awaiting you. In the meantime, please watch over us and the remaining peace officers that will continue the watch in your absence. Goodnight sir.

At the beginning of every shift I supervise, myself and the other officers on shift dedicate the day to the memory of a fallen officer. Tonight, August 15, 2003 we dedicated the shift to the memory of Chief Verlon Lemaster who died on duty just hours ago.

When one law enforcement officer falls, we all stumble for a while, but we will carry on.

Chief Lemaster's sacrifice will never be forgotten.
