It's been 15 years and 6 months since I first met Earl. I lived with him for 6 months while being his roommate during the academy. It was nice to have someone slightly older and more experienced than me helping me through the process.

I frequently tell stories of Earl's shenanigans to others who just laugh! He was someone I admired and enjoyed spending time with. Rest in Peace my friend!

I attended your funeral, though I did not know you. That was the day that I knew I wanted to be involved in local law enforcement.

We have tragically lost two more brothers eight years to the day since Earl was taken from us. So sad. Earl, you are not forgotten.

I remember the day this happened, I didnt want to believe it. I too had the pleasure and honor of working along side Earl as we were graduates of the same CDCR academy, and working at the same institution prior to becoming a CHP Officer. Earl was a great, outstanding Officer. I was just thinking of you the other day. Now you keep watch from above as the eye in the sky. Rest in Peace Earl. You are missed and remembered.

Tomorrow February 17, will be the 8th anniversary of the death of California Highway Patrol Officer Earl Scott who was tragically gunned down and killed during a traffic stop. Before Earl joined the CHP he was a correctional officer and I had the privilege and honor of working with him for a number of years. During a critical incident at which both Earl and I were present his actions helped stop a serious assault on staff. Such actions were commonplace for Earl as he took his job seriously and was diligent in his duties. Regretfully Earl was more of an acquaintance than a friend to me, I wish I had known him better. Fortunately however, he was to me a brother. This is a tribute to my brother Law Enforcement Officer Earl Harwood Scott. Rest in peace my brother, you are both missed and remembered.

It has been 8 years and your memory lives on in those that had the great fortune to call you friend. Will toast you tonite as I do each year. It was an honor to have known you!

We worked together in the Modesto Police Reserve before you realized your dream of becoming a CHP Officer. Now as an instructor at the Oregon police academy I share your story during the Vehicle Stops Course. I'll never forget you my friend.

Earl, I recall your service as a Reserve Officer for the Modesto Police Dept. You were a good friend. Now retired, I am teaching Traffic Stops at the Police Academy in Oregon. I think of you each time I teach and share your story. You will not be forgotten.

Dear Officer Scott: As the anniversary of your EOW approaches....just wanted to let you know you are remembered and appreciated. You are a hero and you and your family are loved. Please watch over my beloved San Bernardino Squad and keep them safe.

Love, your "new Aunt" LoVae

You would be proud that you name still floats around the department as a great officer and how it saddens our hearts. My hats-off to your service and dedication.

Though I never knew you I will never forget this senseless crime. I remember thinking to myself "why would you do that?" I also remember the day when the POS was walked out of the Stockton Detectives Dept in handcuffs and shackles. I remember smiling as I had yet to hear the perp had been arrested. I am glad he was arrested and is now and forever will be incarcerated.

I remember going to Officer Scott's Memorial service as a Recruit at Ray Simmons there in Modesto. Our Acedemy class went to his service and it was a very humbling experience. To this day I still think about that day when ever I hear of an Officer's death. Thank you for your ultimate sacrific. I am and will always be proud to call you my Brother. RIP Officer Scott. You will always be remembered and never forgotten.

Yesterday's Memorial Ceremony brought back a lot of memories, some happy and some sad. Brandon did an awesome job describing the kind of person you were Earl. I think of everyday, and am honored to have worked along side a man like you. I am proud to call my friend.

Earl today was a hard day. You have been gone for 6 years now. This morning felt like early morning 6 years ago. Today your friends and family honored with a roadway dedication in front of your beloved CHP Office. After that concluded there was a special ceremony at The Gallo Center. Your wonderful friend Brandon gave a very nice speech. He spoke about so many things and nailed you right down to your smile that always left people wondering what you knew that they didn't know.

Earl I want you to know that Chris, Tiffany and I think of you every single day. We now know that forever in time when people drive down the roadway that now bears a sign with your name on it , that they will know that CHP Officer Earl Scott was a very important person to so many people. You will be forever in our hearts and are forever our hero. We love you and miss you every single day. Heaven smiles down a little brighter with your smile lighting up every corner.

I did not know Officer Scot, but do know the many he effected, and as always, the good ones are the ones for the most part that go first. Officer Scott and Sgt Howie Stevenson are two of the many men and women we as a community have lost. My heart aches for those who lives are a bit more empty without these amazing people in their lives. I an a news reporter for Clear Channel and was on for both of those tragedies and will never forget either one of them and the people who were so lost and grief stricken. His dedication ceremony is coming up and Clear Channel will be running some PSA's inviting the community to come out and celebrate this and his ultimate tragedy. Part of these PSA's I would like to get people who knew him and share a one to two sentence or longer about him, I can explain more if interested. Please call me at Clear Channel Radio if interested at (209) 551-1306 and ask for Kara Franklyn. I want to make sure that the public remembers not only what an outstanding officer he was, but what a guy! Thankyou
