Rest In Peace Brother LEO. Thank you and your family for your sacrifice and service.

On today, the 36th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served in the U.S. Army Air Forces during WW II. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain; but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way.

Rest in peace!

Of course I thought of You as CDC-R went into a "State-Wide Lock-Down," with several CO's stabbed this week.....

Maj M. B. Parlor

April 4, 2008

I am always hard on my buddy and many times I serve as the "I watch your back tonight role" when we go out because he serves with the CDC-R. I have the luxury of going to watering holes, where I am least likely to run into anyone I deal with at work. No matter where he goes, he stands a good chance of running into someone who may have been incarcerated and who might recognize him.

That is one of the disadvantages of working CDC-R, which even before the 1980's housed more inmates than the entire prison systems of the what is now the former Soviet Union.

The Men and Women of CDC-R truly have a difficult job and many times even fellow law enforcment personnel seem to be confused regarding their peace officer status.

No fellow California law enforcement personnel killed in the line-of-duty, should be forgotten.

CO Sickles, may Your Soul Rest-In-Peace.

From one Charles Sickles to another, I can only hope to live with valor as you did. Rest in peace, friend.
