I worked at JC Penney's with Jeff in 1974-78. He was a great guy and we had a very good time when we worked together. I just heard of his passing. I'm very sorry he is gone from us.

Remembering the exemplary service of Officer Jeffrey Azuar as well as his K-9 Rondo (EOW 7-29-97) in protecting and serving our communities.

The 2015 Jeffrey Azuar Memorial K-9 Trial is being hosted by the Vallejo Police Department this weekend. As we gather with the K-9 and MWD teams, our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Officer Azuar and the Vallejo Police department. We know that Officer Azuar and K-9 Rondo are in your thoughts & we want you to know that they are in ours too and they will never be forgotten...

It's been 15 years since you were taken from us. You are still spoken of in the halls of Vallejo PD with love and admiration. I make sure that every new dispatcher knows who you and Jim are and what an impact you have had on our department and on our city. Your legacy lives on in the town you loved and at the agency where you so proudly served. I think of you every day, Jeff, and I'm so grateful to have known you. You welcomed me, made me a part of your VPD family, shared many stories and laughter with me. I'll always remember the 4th of July and Christmas parties, when you opened your home to us all. I'll always remember your grumpy but light-hearted exterior that covered your heart of gold. I know you're sharing stories and patrolling the streets of Heaven with Jim. Always remembered, never ever forgotten!

Over the years I have thought of Jeff often. He was a cops cop. Jeff would give you the shirt off his back when you needed it, and would give you the constructive criticism you deserved if called for. He was honest, sincere, loving, and a good friend to have. I still miss him and all the Fourth of July parties he put on for us. The man was solid. I was working Investigations the day he died. I only wish I had been there with him.

There is not a day that goes by where I do not think about you. Having worked at a different agency, I choose Vallejo because of what you represented, a K-9 Officer. I left my prior agency because of our discussions and became an Officer of Vallejo.

Because of your footsteps, my goal was to become a K-9 Officer. I archived that goal in 2004, and begun my basic training with my true partner, “Seico.” As we went through our training, there was not an hour where I wanted to quit. It was one of the most challenging training courses that I was able to accomplish. However, you were always there, and “Seico” reminded me that you are not a quitter.

Jeff, as we are reminded that you are not with us at the ten-year anniversary, which is a misleading statement. You touched so many, and you will always be there. There is a very special poem:

My eyes are your eyes,
to watch and protect you and yours.
My ears are your ears,
to hear and detect evil minds in the dark.
My nose is your nose,
to scent the invader of your domain.
And so you may live,
my life is also yours.

Thank you for what you gave, you will always be in my heart and the community that you served.

On the 10th anniversary of Officer Azuar'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. Officer Azuar is not forgotten.
