Rest in Peace my brother. I follow in your footsteps and have, like you taken the Oath to Serve and Protect. I am the current Chief of Police in Gassaway, and my prayer is to make all my predecessors proud.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 97th 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.

On the 95th anniversary of Chief Thompson's death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job. Chief Thompson is not forgotten.
