Reflections for Officer George M. Alleyn

What a truly sad and tragic story. You four gentlemen are nothing short of true heroes for your courage and sacrifice that day. Please know that you will all always be remembered and April 5th is a day we will always honor you. Rest in peace sirs.

What a terrible day this was for America. Losing four heroes at once. Thank you for your service brother. You will never be forgotten.

I was only 7 years old and living in Campbell Ca, when I learned that my father's friend, a man that we knew as Mike Alleyn, died. It had been some time since we had last seen him before learning of his passing. As the years past my father spoke of Mike very frequently. I am not sure of how long they had been friends or where there friendship began. Through the years I have maintained a vision of what he looked like. And today I saw a photo of him at and it reinforced the vision I have carried in my memory; of he and my dad painting a motorcycle frame and gas tank-candy apple green with lots of metal flake. For over 20 years, remnants of that day remained on the telephone pole in front of our house- where they sprayed the remaining paint before cleaning the paint sprayer. Oh the things we remember. And since that time whenever I see a green motorcycle I remember Officer Alleyn. And today I thank him for serving our communities in an effort to keep us safe. Officer Alleyn, your life and good deeds are still felt by many people in many ways. Thank you. Marshall D Schlenz, Olympia Wa

Dear Grandpa-

Although I was never able to meet you, I look at your picture everyday. I look up to you as my role model and I one day hope to be a great police officer just like you were. I sometimes think about how different things would be if you were still with us but I know things happen for a reason. Because of you, other officers can be safer with knowledge they now have. So when I become a police officer I know that I will be safer because of your actions and I know you will continue watching over me.

I love and miss you very much,

Officer Alleyn: Thirty-six years laterand that fateful night is etched in my memory. I am and was just a civilian, but the "Newhall Incident" affected my life and made and an impact on all law enforcement. Because of your sacrifice and the sacrifices of Officers Gore, Pence and Frago, "officer safety" is something more than just a catch-phrase to remind officers to be careful. Instead, officers are trained better than before that fateful night so that training like you might have to fight and fighting like you have been trained equals a better, safer officer. For that we are grateful for your sacrifice. Though we didn't want to lose you, your loss was not in vain.

The four of you are joined by many more angels in blue. I pray for your families and your co-workers and ask God to keep them all safe.

You are remembered, loved and appreciated.

Officer Alleyn,

As a young man growing up in Newhall, I remember the tragedy that occured. Both my father and mother were in law enforcement in Los Angeles and Los Angeles County. The resulting changes in tactics as a result of the "Newhall Incident" has saved countless lives in the law enforcement community. May you and your fellow Officers rest in peace knowing that your lives were not lost in vain. You gave the ultimate sacrifice, may you continue to walk with angels.

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).

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.

Officer Alleyn, 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....
