Isaiah 6:8- "I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me."

It is with great sorrow that we offer our sincerest condolences on the loss of Special Agent Zapata. As police cadets, we have been taught a great many things but one cannot teach how to cope with the loss of a brother in this new family we have been welcomed into. What we have learned is that this calling is not for the weak, the timid, or the feint of heart/character. Armed with that knowledge we may not have known the individual but we do know the type of man and can be eternally grateful for the ultimate sacrifice given in the protection of others. Our Thoughts and prayers are with you,

The 48th Police Academy, Norman, OK on behalf of themselves and the service they are about to join

Almost to the day 24 years ago, my cousin was patrolling the border with Mexico in California, and payed the ultimate sacrifice. Your brother in patrol is in Heaven waiting for you, as are many more of your work family. Godspeed, and rest knowing that others pick up your burden. I pray for your family, friends, and loved ones that they will move forward knowing that you are honored and remembered.
