On behalf of the Men and Women of the Put-in-Bay Police Department thank-you for your service to your State and our Country. Several times a week I pass the memorial for you on I-80 near Sandusky and think of your sacrifice for your fellow man. May God Bless you and your family and may he continue to Bless our great nation The United States of America.

Thank you for doing your job. I too work for the OSHP. When you got killed you had only worked for 3 years and I had only worked 3 days for the Patrol. I will never forget the day you got struck I was at work when the TT cam out. I remember thinking what a shame for such a young guy to be hit like that. I remember reading about you in the "Flying Wheel" and thinking how sad it was for your mom to have to go through that.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks and I will look you up when I get there.

Rest easy.

To the family of Trooper Perez, I can truely feel your pain, because we also lost our 24 year old son Officer Michael Deno in the line of duty on Feb.29th of this year. He too had a car pulled over, but he was shot in the head by this person. The only way I can make it each day is to remember Mike's smile and his positive attitude. I'm sure our sons want our lives to be meaningfull and continue to be the best people we can be. Please know that our family will be thinking and praying for you. Our sons did not die in vain, they were proud to be policemen and I know they made a difference. We will see them again some day, it has been

I never really knew you, but from what I hear you were obssesed with you appearance and the way you did your job, because of this your memory has inspired me to do my job the best I know how. Rest in Peace Brother and may your memory continue to inspire other officers!!

It is a shame that people are reckless drivers and not cautious enough.


Trooper Perez,
I remember the day I heard of the terrible accident that occurred May 12, 2000. I was getting ready to go to work the same place where you too started your career. I was deeply saddened to hear that you might not make it. I prayed everyday for you to get better but the Lord needed you more, he knew he had chosen the best officer.
The day I attended your funeral will be a day forever in my memory. Today and everyday, I go to work at CPPD and look at the wall next to my locker and see your memorial hanging there on the wall. I hope that future officers honor you as I do, knowing that we lost a great friend and an honorable officer.
I did not know you but I wish I had. From what I hear you were one of the best. It is officers like you that make me want to continue my career in this field. Until I see you again "brother," please keep me and all my fellow officers safe from harm.
We all miss you and will always remember you!!!

To the family of Trooper Robert Perez Jr.

When Trooper Perez died the City of Sandusky all seemed to mourn the death of such a young police officer. In Sandusky we have a Police Memorial that is dedicated to the fallen police officers of Ohio and their families. I hope that no more names have to be added to that memorial or the memorial in Washington D.C. Police officers are to often taken for granted by many but Police officers should not be taken for granted they protect you and me and the cities we live in.

Thank you for dedicating you life Trooper Perez, and trying to keep Ohio safe you have touch so many people even though you didn't know us and we didn't know you i thank you from the bottom of my heart
