The whole police community is shocked and at a loss for words.

Sgt. Romans you took an oath to protect and serve the citizens of Oakland and this great country of ours.

In the performance of duty, you made the ultimate sacrifice. There is no greater example of honor.

May your loved ones, friends, co-workers find peace. May the citizens realize the sacrifice made by the law enforcement officers every second of every day.

Rest in peace Sgt Romans, we have got it from here.....................

Angel Sergeant Ervin Romans

In Flesh, he served and protected the City of Men. In Spirit, he serves and protects the Kingdom of Heaven. While he sails on the winds above, guarding the Children of Men, he serves God by defending God’s People with Her Word (Law) and forgives God’s Children with His Love(Law).
A service above and beyond his call of duty.
Some gave their all; he gave his life.
