Thinking of you today, as I often do. I Miss You My Brother!
We lost a few more good guys, including two more of our brothers in blue from the NYPD 84 Pct. Detective's Ramos and Liu as well as two Officers from Paris France.
Please assign them to your heavenly platoon. Teach them the ropes as you did me and so many others, and please assign them to watch overs us.
God Bless you all!

Lt. Narvaez... Freddy to me.
I often think about you, and our time together in the 63rd precinct. You were a wonderful leader, and it was an honor for me to have worked with and gotten to know you.
You were more than a Supervisor, you were a friend to us all.
I tell your story to younger guys I work with.
Your story should always be told and you should never be forgotten. I remember exactly where I was on October 18th 1996, and how I cried like a baby, when I was told what happen to you. God Bless you and your family. God Bless your little girl Katarina who has since joined our department.
I will never forget you.
I Love and Miss You My Brother!!!

It's been a long time Lieu. The morning of that terrible day we had the funeral PO Brian Jones in the confines of the 70. None of us would have known that the day could have become any worse. You are greatly missed and I think of you often. As a young cop working in the 70 I looked up to you. You taught us a lot in the short time you were in the command. RIP Lieu.

Just read an article about how your daughter just graduated from the NYPD academy and was assigned your shield number and to the same precinct that you served. You must be very proud up there. Thank you for your selfless service and sacrafice. Rest in Peace and God bless.

Grateful Citizen and soon to be PA Trooper.

I came across this site after my husband a NY Auxillary introduced it to me. I went to your 15th memorial anniverary sponsored by NYPD, LBA. I saw your beautiful, smart Wife and daughter. You would be proud of them. I will one day write them and tell them about how you were in Junior High School, when I met you and were in the chorus and school performances with the rest of the gang. at John D. WellS J. H. S. 50.

Lt. Narvaez,
It's been 15 years. I came across this site after searching your name. I remember you as great boss, and a great person. Your name lives on, those of us who knew you will never forget you. I can remember coming in for the midnights in the 70 as you were finishing up your 4x12 shift. It was a pleasure and an honor to have crossed paths. Wish we could of worked together longer, may you RIP, and may God bless your family.

Freddy it's hard to believe all these years have passed.

I often think about you and happened to stumble upon this website after "googling" your name. In 1996, I was a young Sergeant in the 70th Precinct and you were my Platoon Commander. I was working the night you were taken from us. I was the Desk Officer. It was a night I will certainly never forget. I have you know that even after all the years that have passed, your name, your memory and your legacy is still alive and doing well. I just had a conversation last night about you with a few guys from the 70. We couldn't help but laugh and smile as we were telling stories about you and your sharp sense of humor. At the end of the conversation, we were all in agreement that you were truly a great guy, a great leader and you are deeply missed. On a side note, as the years have passed by and as my career has taken me to different places, I have always made it a point tell your story to newly hired officers. Everyone should know your name and you should never be forgotten.

Freddy an I were best friends in Company 6 Police Academy class of November 7, 1979. We were elated when we graduated and were both assigned to NSU#5. We car pooled to the "old" 34 Pct where NSU 5 turned out.

I remember when we were in the Academy during the Transit strike. We were assigned foot posts at cross streets to help with traffic flow. One car wouldn't stop so Freddy jumped in front and tried to stop it himself. The car stopped and Freddy and I laughed about it later. I will never forget the day I saw the TV report about Freddy's death. It lives with me like the JFK assassination. My wife (who met Freddy) and I cried all day. I'm an NYPD LT and my job brings me to the 70 once a year. I always visit and touch Freddy's plaque. He was a great man with an incredible sense of humor. R.I.P. my friend. I'm sure you have them all laughing in Heaven.

Remembering you on this rainy October day, 13 years after the night that changed everything. "And the world spins madly on..."


October 18, 2009

Rest in peace Lieu! I remember hearing about your death. I was still in high school and my brother was coming on the job. Three years later I would join. Not a day goes by that i do not visit this site and remember all the great men and women who have lost their life. You will never be forgotten.
Jose Colon.. stay safe in Orange County, I worked in the 63rd also, I think with you. It has been ten years so my memory is a little fuzzy...

October 18 can never come and go without notice. Roses on your grave, a stop at the place where your life ended, and I'm still stunned 12 years later. You are very much in my thoughts.

I often drive down the street of your demise while taking a short cut. I sit at the light and stare down the block. I want to grab the people walking by and say "Do you know a great man gave his life right here trying to protect your community?" Ahh, they wouldn't get it. I still keep in touch with Marilyn and Katrina has got your sense of humor. But hey, you know that. You see everything from where you are... Miss ya, Pal.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
