Reflections for Officer George M. Alleyn

I went to school with his sister Judy. I always thought he was so handsome. I remember well hearing about his death and feeling such sorrow. It is hard to believe it has been 40 years. I drove on Hwy 99 all the time and knew the CHP was always near. I extend my heartfelt thank you for his service and prayers to his family during this anniversary. God bless all our service men and officers.

Hey Dad, Although I only got to spend 9 short months with you, I have always loved you as if you were with me all along. There has never been a day gone by that I haven't thought about you. I miss you so much and you will always be my hero. You will forever be in our hearts. You have been embedded in the hearts of your grandchildren as well. They miss you and think of you daily also.
I love you,
your son Kevin

The final chapter has now been closed. The remaining scum you battled so bravely was found dead in his prison cell.
You are with God in his kingdom of Heaven and they are writhing in hell. We learned so much from your incident. You and your families gave so much that fateful night and for that, many many many LEO's go home to their loved ones. Keep resting easy Brother. God Bless All

My brother. I have known of your death since it happened. I was also told about it in the academy many years ago. Forgive me for having your memory slip to the back of my mind in recent years, especially after the sacrifice you made. Today I finished a book about your life and your death. I drove to the location where you died and although the place has changed a lot, emotions overcame me. I promise that you and your partners will never ever be forgotten by me again.

Mike and I lived on the same street in Campbell,Ca. We went to school together and I spent much time with him and his motorcycles while we were in High School. I was a long way from home when I heard the news. Rest in Peace Mike.

Hard to believe this is another Sunday, April 5. Thirty-nine years ago was a shocking, terrible tragedy, but the law enforcement community turned it into a learning opportunity and now officer safety is priority one and your loss is not in vain.

The legacy of the four of you is that cops are safer and every traffic stop is now treated carefully so that it does not become another "Newhall Incident" and your loss is not in vain. Your lives meant something. Not all of us can say that!! Thank you!!

Bless you and love you all,

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 39th 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.

The lessons of the Newhall incident have probably saved countless lives since then. Unfortunately, no matter how well trained or competent the officers are, every day on the job is a day of peril. Within the last three weeks 4 brave officers from Oakland, CA and 3 brave officers from Pittsburgh, PA have been murdered by thugs wielding AK-47s.
How brave are each of our true American heroes who face danger each day he or she pins on thier badges to police our streets so that our communities may be safeguarded.

I was just a rookie Policeman on Patrol when it was announced via radio of the "Newhall Incident" You four brothers indeed changed Police Work in California and I will never forget that awful day. After the incident there was no longer any seals on shotguns and no more red plastic plugs in the barrel of Police 12 gauge shotguns. Police no longer saved their brass at the range. Police tactics forever changed that day. May you rest in peace, Sir and thank you for your service to the people of the State of California. God Bless!

This week, I provided a Lieutenant with a copy of the photograph depicting Your patrol vehicles and the photograph depicting the four of You at the Coroner's Office.

Many are aware that the CHP made several changes as a direct result of Your incident.

What many do did not know regarding Your tragic incident is the following:

More than twenty years after that tragic day, I represented the LAPD at a California P.O.S.T. conference regarding rewriting the textbook for patrol tactics. It was because of Your tragic incident that I was able to convince the LAPD as well as P.O.S.T. to dispense with the term "felony vehicle pullovers." Your incident involved a crime that was only a Misdemeanor. As a result today we use the term "high-risk vehicle pullover."

The Lieutenant and I will be showing the CHP tape and discussing Your murder at an upcoming Roll Call. Rest-In- Peace, Brothers.....
