Your heroism and service is honored today, the 46th 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

It took some work but now we have you accounted for and I hope that with this your name and efforts will be remembered by those that bravely follow in your path here at the Department.

Thanks Chief Tillett.

Asst. Chief Tillet,
On today, the 39th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your community, but also for our Country when you served in the USCG. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Semper Paratus!
