I am only a citizen, a former San Diego Police Explorer Captain, but you could say I was Born Blue. I've lost many LEO friends and extended family members from the San Diego Police Dept. to murder and suicide. Patrolman Emery Campbell, Thank you for your service. I don't have to know you to know you are a hero. You wont be forgotten.

I'm glad that you are being remembered and honored for your sacrifice. Thank you is hardly sufficient.
I was honored, in 2006, to be a recipient of the Medal for Valor, awarded in your name, at the Heroes Behind the Badge ceremony.

On August 27, 1976 I was wounded in the line of duty when I responded to an "unknown trouble" call in Chillum,Md.

The round entered my chest 1/2" below my heart and exited my back under my Sam Browne. I have often wondered why I was spared ?

Perhaps the Good Lord decided our beloved profession had suffered enough for one day because of your sacrifice ?

Thank You My Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 96th 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 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.

Officer Cambell is a role model for all Officers. Excellent idea about the medal of valor.

Although its been almost a full century since the death of Officer Campbell, he is not forgotten. After being seriously injured with a gunshot wound, Officer Campbell continued to fight with the suspect holding him on the ground until back up officers arrived. Had he backed away and tended to his wounds, Officer Campbell would probably have lived but the suspect would have surely shot someone else.

As of now the San Diego Police Museum is pushing through a proposal to award Officer Campbell the Medal of Valor, something that wasn't available at the time of his death.

Officer Campbell, your unselfish heroism lives on. God bless you and rest in peace.
