Officer Figueroa I am so sorry this happened to you. My son and I learned about you today. We were sad about the way the senseless way you died and the loved ones you left behind. My son had an art class assignment to make a mural for a local hero in our town and he chose you. He drew a conception of a mural that he would make in our town of Maricopa, Arizona if he could. Just wanted you to know that you are not forgotten by the kids of Maricopa Arizona this many years later. God Bless you, rest in peace.

The years of have gone by and your daughter is seven now. I had just a few months solo when day shift was sent to stand by as scene security at 19th ave and Roeser..where you were needlessly taken from us. It was my honor to stand by this horrible scene.

I patrol out of South Mountain Precinct now and go past the area where this criminal took your life. I walk past your plaque in the hallway every day. I go past your locker with your name on it, which will remain locked forever, never to be used again.

Your wife and daughter must miss you so and our hearts go out to them with love. You'll never be forgotten. We miss you brother. Keep a look out for us.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the first anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service.

To your family: I understand the meaning of lives forever altered, and know that the hurt of losing a beloved never goes away...the pain and pride are forever. I pray for your solace.

Rest In Peace, Shane.

Your legacy still lingers in the halls of the South Mountain Precinct. Everyone who was a part of the SMP family feels it. Thank you for all you did to make where we all live a greater and richer place. As I watch over my baby girl, I feel sadness because I know Shane you won't be there physically for yours. The pink girly room, cute little outfits, watching potty time with elmo and all the other creatures on sesame street. But I also feel your daughter with be strong and empowered growing up knowing her daddy was a great man who stood up for what is right. I can't imagine a better role model to set for your child than that. Shane, if I ever meet your little girl, I will tell her that her daddy was a true hero, and for her to be proud of you.

In my tradition we say the following:

May the Lord guide you and keep you,
May the Lords face shine brightly upon you and be gracious unto you,
and may the Lord lift up his face to you, and grant you peace.

I am proud to say that when I knew Police Officer Shane Cory Figueroa I worked at the Phoenix Police Academy. Officer Figueroa was a fine and upstanding recruit and at the very beginning of his career. He showed that he represented the very essence of honesty and integrity of the Phoenix Police Department. I am a better person to have known him and can proudly say that it was an honor and privilege to have known him for the short time he was a recruit and officer. My condolences go out to his wife, child and family. Officer Shane Cory Figueroa, the sun does not shine as bright as it once did before. May your family find honor and peace. Your halo shines bright over your family keeping them safe and when they look up at the stars, your star shines the clearest and brightest. You are truly an angel with the brightest halo for all to see. You truly will be missed by everyone you knew and helped. We humbly and respectfully thank you for the greatest gift that you could possibly give to humanity. Amen and may your walks with god bring you peace and harmony.

To the Figueroa family. I wanted so much to be at the sign dedication but duty calls and I will be in Texas. Shane gave the ultimate sacrifice and the memorial sign proves that he will never be forgotten. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. See you soon. Earl
