Reflections for Trooper First Class Arthur W. Plummer, Jr.

One of my boyhood hero's that influenced my decision to be a State Police officer. He understood boys and thankfully found ways to make his point about obeying the law without arrest and court action. I tried to make some of my later law enforcement with the same discretion.

As I was searching for information for someone from Ocean City, who is writing a book about our town, I came to read all these wonderful comments. That to this day bring tears.

Thank you all for your comments, and for remembering my father, Trooper 1st Class Arthur W. Plummer It means so much.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 51rst 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

You gave you life on an Island I love, I spent my childhood growing up there in the summers. I had heard of your death many years ago and have walked the beach with you on my mind. I truly intend to find the place were your plane went down and let everyone know what happened there... I speak of you as often as I speak of my Dad. Please rest now, knowing that you are always remembered by the Maryland State Police and if I can do it everyone will know about your sacrifice.

God Bless you and the loved ones you left behind.

Each day I try to read the ODMP. Today I read your story. Any officer who dies in the line of duty will always be remembered for his sacrifice. You died a hero. Rest in peace Trooper Plummer.

I stop by this website often after the death of two dear friends with the NCSHP (Troopers Calvin Taylor E.O.W. October 3, 2001 and Anthony Cogdill E.O.W. May 30, 2003). Unfortunately, I had to add the name of another friend. Deputy Jeffrey Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

We all grieve over the lives lost in the line of duty. I hope you can find some comfort knowing that there are countless prayers that go out for your family.

Trooper Plummer, you are remembered on this date of your death. You will always be remembered.

These are senseless tragedies that never seem to stop. God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

...Gone, but never Forgotten....
