Mr. Bishop, I attended a drug interdiction school recently and several of your traffic stops and seizures were highlighted and used as training aids. You sir are most certainly an interdiction artist. May you rest in peace as we continue to interdict in your memory.

To the Bishop's, your father was my mentor and inspiration as a young police officer and deputy sheriff. My early success as a local interdiction officer in MD was all because of Robbie. Today, I still conduct myself in a manner consistent with Robbies work ethic and drive. He will forever be missed.

Officer Bishop, I know your children. You would be proud . They are fine young adults and they have bright futures. God Bless!

I strive to be even a fraction of the criminal interdiction officer you were.

Robbie: It doesn't seem possible that you were taken from us 14 years ago on this date.

When I stood there looking at all the people, tears streaming down their faces...I, too felt the anguish and disbelieve.

You will never be forgotten. Many lives have been saved because you lived and taught others.

My friend, you're greatly missed.


January 20, 2013

Capt. Bishop, It has been almost 14 years since you were taken from us, yet you still continue to touch many lives. Thank you for the legacy you have left behind, as well as the skill set you have provided many generations of interdiction officers. I look forward to the day I shake your hand on the streets of Gold. Until then, watch over us all.

RIP REB314 - Gone, but never forgotten.

Robbie was one of the classiest guys and knowledgeable police officers I have ever met when it came to drug interdiction.

I hope his children learn of just how wonderful their dad was through our reflections and those that were lucky enough to have met him as I was.

Hard to believe it was so long ago...

A true loss to the LEO community as each one memorialized here is as well.

As someone close to Captain Bishops tragedy...Thank you for your sacrifice as a Mom, and thank you for your Son's sacrifice as a brother...Find your solace in this...we will press the fight!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 13th anniversary year 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 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. As I read the refections of your co-workers , I am reminded of how vivid the memories are of the officers and dispatchers who respond to or are involved in a lod shooting. I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you.

Rest In Peace.

Sgt. Bishop (As I knew you),
I learned so much from you in our years together in the Traffic Unit. I always admired your dedication and knowledge. You were one of the best, if not the best, drug officer I have known. Of all the officers I have known to give the ultimate sacrifice to protect and serve in my 20+ years of law enforcement, you are the one I never forget. Even after my retirement 8 years ago, January 20, 1999 is forever etched in my mind. I'd never thought we'd lose you, my friend, but the law enforcement world is a better place from you having been in it. RIP and God Bless this family. I hope Mike Mears hears your statement every time he closes his eyes.

Being a K-9 Handler for over 18yrs., I wanted to learn as much as I could about interdiction. I was fortunate enough to work with one of your many partners here in Palm Beach County. I soon joined NCEA314 and went to as many Conferences as i could. Your methods have made a great difference in the way I, among others do their jobs. Thanks for your legacy brother. RIP.

I never had the honor of meeting you, I feel like I know you though. I've seen numerous videos of your traffic stops and learned from your many experiences and success. I wanted you to know that a lot of officers have found a lot of loads due to your knowledge and teachings that are still being taught today. A lot of officers are alive today due to your teachings also. You will never be forgotten -Thank you sir!

R.I.P. Brother!

Another sad anniversary has come and gone and I can not believe how long it has been. It seems like just yesterday I got that phone call. You are missed Robbie. So many people learned so much from you; your legacy lives on. RIP and we will see you soon.

Years ago, I met and trained with Robbie Bishop and we immediately became friends. His death was a loss to Law Enforcement and to the public her served. His level of committment was unequaled and his enthusiasm for police work unending,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Capt. Bishop, every time I get out of my Patrol car on a traffic stop I think of you. I didn't know you but I do know Mr. Eddie Ingram who was your partner. It is a shame that a thug took you away from the LEO family!!!! You are greatly missed!!!!! RIP MY BROTHER!!!

Robbie: I remember you from your Cherokee Co. SO days and I will never forget the contributions that you made to the war on drugs. God Bless You!

I remember my first big load on I-75, you rolled up working with the Cherokee County, Ga SO. What a great night, you and Miami Mike (RIP... Georgia State). Even though it was only 500# of Marijuana we were high fiving and hooting, like it was the mother load. Well it was back then! I learned so much from you over the years and one thing that I try my best to teach to everyone is.....NEVER SEARCH ALONE! We called pipeline back then, but it's all the same and will never change, from the times sitting in the median (when you would sling dirt gravel and say "can't talk now there's dope going bye", til today and I put cars on the curb on I-40. You will always be apart of me. You know who I am and that's all that matters my friend! Until we see each other again or we talk after the next haul!!!!!

your friend,

ICE forever 748!


July 21, 2010

I think about you often and how sad it is that you left this world at such and early age. I miss you. I thank you for all the things you taught me.
I hope that you continue to keep and eye on your fellow brothers and sisters in blue.
To this day, I often think about the day you passed and the feelings that washed over me. That is a day I will never forget. RIP my friend. We will all see you again one day.

I didn't know Captain Bishop, but the death of any law enforcement officer saddens me. The perp got life in prison. I think he should have gotten the death penalty.

After many years I just watched a training video that I got from you years ago. I was getting it ready for my son who now works at a large local Department. I retired from Police work the year we lost you. You were an inspiration to so many and were a great friend to me and my guys. Because of the work guys like us have done we Pray the world is a better place.God Bless you Robbie and I miss you Friend.
