Officer LInton had a long and illustrious career in Colorado. He had served with the Arapahoe County Sheriff Dept. during the last decades of the 19th century, when he arrested Doc Holliday on a downtown Denver street corner, for the Murder of Frank Stilwell, from the O.K. Corral shootout.Bat Masterson helped Holliday beat the charge. (Masterson later also served as Arapahoe Deputy in the 1890's) Officer Linton also served at various times on the Denver Police Department, as well as the newly formed Denver Sheriff Department (after 1902)as late as 1914. He served his community well, honorably, and died in the performance of his duties. He was truly a cop's cop to the end.

The Federal Reserve Police are responsible for our money. “Our” as in every citizen of the United States. It’s an awesome responsibility and a job done well by these brave men and women.

Officer Linton, you had quite a career in law enforcement and tried in vain to stop a robbery. It took a lot of courage to do what you did. I’m sorry it cost you your life. You are remembered and honored on this site. You are a hero.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 87th anniversary year 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
