No passage of time can ever erase your service and sacrifice. Rest in peace always.

Lord, when it’s time to go inside,
That place of steel and stone.
I pray that you will keep me safe,
So I won’t walk alone.
Help me to do my duty,
Please watch me on my rounds.
Amongst those perilous places
And slamming steel door sounds.
God, Keep my fellow Officers
Well and free from harm.
Let them know I’ll be there too,
Whenever there’s alarm.
Above all when I walk my beat,
No matter where I roam.
Let me go back whence I came,
To family and home.

RIP We have the watch now

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 104th 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

Thank you for your brave service to the people of Wyoming. It is sad that a co-worker smuggled weapons into the prison that were used against you in a futile effort to escape.

Mr. Samuelson,
It has taken over 100 years, but you are finally being honored. I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Wyoming. There is no tougher job in Law Enforcement than that of a Corrections Officer.
