Reflections for Police Officer William I. Van Arsdale


Officer Van Arsdale,
On today, the 160th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of New Brunswick.

I suspect the good Officer was sacrificed in the Delaware and Raritan Canal, by the banks of the Raritan River. This was an industrial area and a river port at the time. There are no longer coal yards in New Brunswick, as far as I know. To William Van Arsdale: Thank you very much for your work, and RIP.

Officer Van Arsdale was remembered in 2010 during the 175 Anniversary of the New Brunswick Police Department, one of the oldest police agencies in the United States. His sacrifice was made during the early days of the agency and his life and service was honored by erecting a monument at his final resting place.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 156th anniversary year 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 line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

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