I was a reserve police officer. I remember listening to my police scanner on that day. Very sad day for me. I think of him as I met him several weeks prior when he had disarmed a knife wielding suspect.

SCOTTY:
I will always remember your smile, and the good times we had at the Police Academy. It's been nearly 25 years and I remember the last words you said to me that year. They were positive and I will always keep them in my heart. You are a fine man, an excellent Police Officer, and a true friend to may people. Thank-you for your service, and for your ultimate sacrifice. God Bless You In Heaven.

I have been reading and rereading Scott's memorial here for a few years and really could not bring myself to write something until now and, it isnt easy.
I met Scott when he came to work at Eloy P.D. I noticed right away that he had the personality and ambition to make a great cop.
I remember when we hung out together after work or during lunch, he always had a way to make everyone laugh.
Scott made this quirky noise with his mouth that there is no way to describe, but it seemed to mean, 'yeah, whatever". I wish I could remember how he did it but, it has been too many years.
Scott had a very serious side too. No matter where you were during a call, if he was with you, you did not have to worry, he had your back.
Scott, it is hard to believe it has been 23 years since you left this earth...sems just like the other day, we were hanging out.
Miss you man!

I just recently heard of Scott's Passing, I knew him when he was working in Eloy Arizona. Great Guy and a very dedicated Officer, so sorry for his families loss. I hope there is some closure to his killers case soon, for the sake of everyone.
God Bless Scott!

Scott, it is 2011 and there isn't a day that dosen't go by that I don't think of you when you got that call when you were getting something to eat. I always wanted you to know that I ran to the hospital to donate blood in your name and prayed for you to pull threw. I am sorry that I haven't wrote to you in the Memorial Page sooner but when I go to church you are always in my pray's, and my thoughts ,you touched my soul. You were a great guy, and special friend I wish there were more people like you around today.
With Love and Affection your friend,

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 20th 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. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. In reading your reflections, I can see you made an impact on the lives of many people and that you were well respected. I have always liked the quote "It is not how they died that is important. It is how they lived." Your character seems to exemplify that quote.
Rest In Peace

My favorite memory of Scott was that he invented a leather "keeper" for the shoulder speaker on our police radios. I was having trouble with mine, and he fixed it for me in the 7-11 parking lot at Dixie and Copans one night while we were on patrol. He reminded me of a big brother helping a sister stay safe.
Scott was murdered on my husband's birthday while I was pregnant with our son. We were out to dinner when we heard that he had been shot, but knowing how he always wore his vest and had a K9 partner, we thought it must be superficial. We were devastated to find out he was dead later that evening. My husband (also a PBPD officer) died almost 2 years to the day later from a heart attack. Law Enforcement takes its toll on the best and brightest.
My son is now 19, and Scott's murderer just passed his 52nd birthday on death row, still waiting for justice to be served. Scott will always be 28, strong and good. None of us will ever forget you, Scott; rest in peace...

It was by chance that I got to meet Officer Winters. I was only 15 years old, my father had recently passed away and Scott happened to be on patrol in my neighborhood (East Pompano). He stopped his car while I was walking down the street with some friends. I was carrying a bottle of Margarita Mix, and Scott questioned what I was doing with it, being that I was a minor. He showed concern that my friend's mother was out of town, and said he'd drive by later that night to make sure we weren't drinking. It was the first time I saw a car marked "K-9", and actually got to see a police dog up close. True to his word, Scott drove by later that night - and caught us hiding the liquor bottle in the bushes. He confiscated the bottle, and although my friends and I we weren't too happy about that back then, I remember how horrible it felt when I heard of his untimely passing. As the 19th anniversary of his passing approaches, I pray that his family and those who knew him celebrate Scott's life and never forget the commitment he showed to Pompano Beach PD.

Scott, Today when I teach my academy class I will use your story as an example of how a police officer lives and dies. You were without a doubt one of the finest police officers I have ever meet. You never quit. Your memory lives on and will serve as an example for another generation of law enforcement. Miss you much, Ian

Scott, (656)

My Brother!! My Best Friend!! I remember the first time I met you, you were teaching all the new cadets CPR/First Aid. We aruged through most of the class but in the end, you were always right. Then, I became your partner and we basically ran the streets of Eloy, Arizona. You taught me so much about being an officer. Then you left and went to Pompano Beach Police Department, I followed you there. Even there, you were my mentor and you continued to teach me everything I needed to know about being an officer. It has taken me 17 1/2 years to write this down and it's still hard. You were my best friend and there's not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I MISS MY BROTHER and PARTNER, my Best Friend. But I know someday we will be Partners again. May God Bless You!! I know you will continue to watch over me and all the other fellow officers.

Respectfully,
