Reflections for Correctional Officer William Diaz-Pagan

Officer Diaz-Pagan,
On today, the 25th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Puerto Rico. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.

William was my cousin. He was killed on November 12, 1994 at the age of 19. He left behind his wife and a 6 month old son at the time of his death. We miss him dearly. Today, on the 19th anniversary of his death, we reflect on the good times we had with him. His son has grown into an awesome young man. We love you Will and will never forget you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 15th 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

14 years have gone by since you gave the ultimate sacrifice in your service to Puerto Rico. You are still not forgotten, sir. You may rest in peace, we have the watch now.

The Correctional Officers Prayer

Lord, I ask for courage...
Courage to face and conquer my own fears.
Courage to take me where others will not go.

I ask for strength...
Strength of body to protect others.
Strength of spirit to lead others.

I ask for dedication...
Dedication to my job, to do well.
Dedication to my community, to keep it safe.

Give me, Lord, concern for all those who trust me.
and compassion for those who need me.

And, please Lord, through it all
watch over me and keep me true.

DB, Lieutenant
Federal Bureau of Prisons
