Reflections for Patrolman Thomas Redden

Although I never met Thomas Redden, I am his Great-Great Niece and was proud to add his name to the CPD memorial for my mother and the Redden family. May he Rest In Peace along with other officers who have selfishly given their lives so we can all be safe. God bless you all.

Your dedication to duty and the ultimate sacrifice made by you and your fellow officers will never, I repeat never, be forgotten by the CPD. Despite those who may try to revise history the sacrifice by you and the other officers will forever remain as an example to the CPD.

I am 14 years old and I am still trying to search if we are blood relatives. I am very intersted and even if we aren't, I am very proud that you served our country as a police officer. You will always remain in our hearts. Thank you Officer Redden

Your heroism and service is honored today, the one hundred and thirteenth 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.

Although I never knew you, I still think of you as I patrol the streets of my city. Your death was tragic and your department suffered greatly. As you did, I'll carry on the family name, wear the badge with honor, and await the day when we can meet behind those pearly gates.

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 recently. Deputy Jeffery Hewitt, Buncombe County (NC) Sheriff’s Department, E.O.W. April 4, 2004.

I want to honor all of those who gave their life in the line of duty. Although your death was many many years ago, you are still a hero.

God Bless the men and women who continue to serve their communities in our great Nation.

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