Officer Larsen: Thanks for your faithful and exemplary service to the citizens of Beloit. You obviously fought to the very end. I also voice a special word of gratitude and well deserved respect to your loyal and caring wife who stayed by your side, throughout the long fight for survival. Words cannot convey how much she honored you and our profession.

Having read the story of this travesty, it's hard to decide who was the utmost hero-Officer Larsen or his wife Pam providing so many years of care of a comatose quadriplegic! The care is 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, most people would not realize how MUCH care is needed, as a retired nurse I do know. God bless you Mrs. Larsen, you honored the vow "in sickness or in health, till death do us part."

In 1980 I was hired to go under as a security officer to investigate theft of drugs at the local hospital. That's when I met Officer Larsen. Can't say how good it felt when he, or any Beloit Police Officer, (OK, Township Officers too....) would respond to the ER for whatever reason. Pete was special. As was Chief Tubbs, and now Chief Jacobs.... Officer Fahrney.... we did good work at the college and I wish you were around the night I got beat up. I know you would have had my back. Or when we lost the student we had warrants after we took him out of the T-House. I never told you I called the frat that trashed your car. I told them we knew it was them and one of them confessed the next day. Also, part of the retaliation was the bust for all the weed in Chapin. Wasn't that funny when you torn your shoulder up on your first forced entry... oh the good times. My respect to you all.. we do what we need to do.... because evil prevails when good men/women do nothing.

I work for the railroad and travel through the City of Beloit often on my way around Wisconsin. I noticed your tribute on the back of a squad car “In memory of #23” . I thought that was pretty wonderful. I was saddened to hear there was a plan to phase out and remove that tribute. I am happy to say that plan was met with strong opposition and your tribute will remain on the squad cars. I think it is great that your spirit will still be riding along with each Officer. In the rain, snow, or sunshine #23 will still be on patrol. It’s impossible to put into words how horrible it is that you had to give your life. It is to you and those like you that possess that unwavering courage that we need to always remember, you knew that risk better than anyone, and yet you still stood to protect. Your family brings honor to your name and memory by enduring. Thank you for being unyielding and brave. Thank you for wearing the badge!

Just wanted to say I am still a member of the Beloit PD Honor Guard after nearly 15 years of service with this Department. I joined the unit in your honor, although I never had the honor of meeting you in person. I think of you often, Pete. Each new employee we train...I sneak up and direct them to your plaque on the wall and quietly tell them your story. You are so missed.

I remember Pete from putting up with me as a dumb rookie. I still remember Pete's humor, the way he'd stand in the hall when we were waiting to go 10-42, his hat pulled down crooked, his feet all pigeon toed and his jacket mis-buttoned just to make us laugh.

I never met Pete but am proud to serve. My squad, as do all of ours, carries "in memory of #23" on the back. Rest in peace brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 11th 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 murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace
