Reflections for Police Chief Charlie Earl Oglesby

I located an amazing photo of the Chief that now hangs in my office as the current chief of police in Twin City Ga. The old city jail a historic beautiful brick structure needs to be restored and named in honor of Chief Oglesby. If anyone can help please contact the current Chief of Police in Twin City Ga

Chief Oglesby,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Twin City. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Charlie Oglesby was a man's man. He rarely carried a gun (like Sheriff Buford Pusser in "Walking Tall"). If he arrested you (without handcuffs) you just knew to do what he said. Never raised his voice. He was attempting to get Neal Oglesby to surrender after a three day manhunt. He thought he would be able to go into the woods when all the dust had settled and get Neal to surrender rather than the suspect being shot to pieces. That was just like Charlie.

I was seven years old when this happened. Charlie was a friend and relative of our family. As a child he was one of my favorite people. He was always friendly and loving. Everyone in the surrounding area loved Charlie Oglesby. Our community was shocked and devistated by the loss. You will always be remembered Charlie. There are not many men of your caliber.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 43rd 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 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
