From the family of officer Juan A. Morales. We would like to thank everyone for your kind words to us. May God bless all of you.

To all the officers working to protect us, we know Juan will be looking out for you. Bless you.

The Morales family

To Officer Morales family and friends,
He paid the ultimate sacrifice for us all. Putting the uniform on everyday you never know what the outcome of each day will bring. I am sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Juan "Tazz" Morales will be missed. He touched many lives including mine and always got me in a good mood when I was feeling down. He loved his family and his many co-workers and would do anything for them. He got that from his mother who would make holiday dinner for the traffic shift and made everyone feel like family. God bless you Tazz and we'll all miss you!!

For those who pledge to uphold it, freedom requires a sacrifice the protected will never know.


The loss of another officer is always tough to hear of. My thoughts and prayers are with each of Officer Morales' family members. The job of a motorcycle officer is perhaps the most dangerous and yet most satisfying jobs that can be found. I would like to thank you for the professional job you did while you were with us. The streets of gold must need a "wheel man" to watch over them. You will always be in my prayers. Rest well my brother. We will meet again...

To all the family,friends,brothers and sisters in blue of Officer Juan Morales
My heart is heavy.. when I was told of the tragic death of another officer, I knew this officer,not very well, but had spoken with him several times when he was in the SAPD dispatch office working the mic. He always had such a happy attitude! May you rest in peace Juan and always be that guardian angel for your family, friends and fellow officers in blue.

It kills me when i hear about an officer losing his life; but it kills me more when he has a family and young children. God bless you Patrolman Morales. Thanks for the 11 years.

I know God has prepared a special place in heaven to all those officers killed in the line of duty. God only picks the best to watch over the streets of heaven. They say heaven is the most beautiful place one could imagine. I think we owe it to all the officers walking the beat there. The next few weeks will be the toughest for the family and for the fellow officers. Take care of each other. I know its hard. We are going through the same situation. God bless all peacekeepers. Your fellow officer is gone but keep his memory alive by doing the job as best as you can.

To the family of Officer Morales, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. MY God bless you and keep you in the palm of his hands.


Off Juan "Tazz" Morales was a good friend I worked with for 3 years. He always had a smile on his face in good times and bad times. He leaves behind 4 beautiful children and a lovely wife and family. Every Thanksgiving, his mother would invite the Traffic Shift to her house for dinner and every year it outstanding. Tazz loved his job and his family and will be deeply missed.

I'm going to miss you "Jimmy"
