Reflections for Agent Louis A. Pompei


As hard as it is to believe that 11 years have passed since your life was taken from us, you are still remembered everyday. There is a section of the 210 freeway named for you in your honor. I pause and reflect on the man you were everytime I pass and I know that others must do so to, as someone makes sure that there are American flags placed on the sign baring your name. You are not forgotten!!

I was just thinking of you today. You always brought a smile to my face whenever you were around. I always laugh when I think about the time we served the search warrant in Azusa and you brought in Covina's K9 to do the search. The K9 handler thought his dog had run away and was frantically searching the block. We got a lot of laughs over that. I miss you.

Louis, I can't believe it's been 10 years. I still think about the Warrant we did when my K9 got attaked by the cat. We had a few good laughs over that one. And I still use the work out you showed me all those years ago. I think of you every time I use the Interchange named in your honor. I was recently in your City on follow up when I made a wrong turn and ended up in the park bearing your name. I know your're watching all of us from up there. Take care of K9-Sjerka till I arrive...God Bless Brother.

There is no greater love a man can have than to lay his life on the line for those who cannot defend themselves.
Your Bravery is of the highest order, you are a Hero and you are not forgotten.

God bless you and your family at this tragic loss. You are a true hero.

I believe it is important to know the story of Louie Pompei who gave his life trying to apprehend 2 robbery suspects. As a resident of a neighboring city, I just heard about his story 9 years later as I am 17 yrs old. Thank you Louie for all of your hard work you gave to Glendora.RIP...

What a great smile! It lights up his face! This is so tragic. Boy, I sure
am looking forward to that day when Jesus comes to restore peace on
earth. He is the Prince of Peace. His gospel is Peace. Oh, happy day
when He comes for His own. I can't wait!
Until then, I guess this senseless violence will continue. Why anyone
would want to wear a cop's uniform is beyond me. Life is scarey enough
without being a human target! Thank you officer Pompei for your
sacrifice. Thank you Jesus for your sacrifice, too. I long for your return.
Until then, may the love of Christ surround you and comfort you in your
mourning of this dear fellow officer and loved one. God bless!

"Louie" was the most wonderful Human being I have ever met.
He changed my life and my family's life through his living and through his death. Louie now resides in my heart forever, and I'm forever grateful and honored to have known him...Thanks Louie.

Louie Pompei's Fiance

Louie was a very enthusastic and friendly person. He would greet you with a firm handshake and a smile. In the 7 years he was with our agency he distinguished himself as an excellent officer. The morning I was notifed at home that Louie had been fatally injured in a robbery was like a nightmare. In the six years since he was killed his memory lives on in all of us. He will never be forgotten. The memorial built in front of our station bears his name, the only officer in our dept's history to die in the line of duty. I pray that no other brother officers name will have to be added to it.
As it is written in JOHN 15:13-14, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command." May God Bless your soul and your memory never be forgotten in our community.

Corporal Virgil Weber

I am greatly saddened to see a Police Officer killed in my hometown, Agt. Pompei, you truly are a hero, you and your family will be in my families prayers.
