I first met Steve Licon in 2001 when I transferred to the Santa Ana CHP office from the Capistrano CHP office.

He was a very dedicated and conscientious motor officer, and we soon became friends. There was a group of about 10 of us, including the Captain, a Lieutenant, and a Sergeant that would gather in the back parking lot to pray before hitting the day shift beat. I was the front desk officer at that time.

The last time I saw Stevie alive we were at the Academy together, it was approximately a year before he was killed. He was there for some training, I was there helping out at the range with pistol inspections.

Steve, I just want to say I miss you brother, and I pray for your wife and daughter often. You are not forgotten. I will see you again when Christ returns.

Every morning I go to my knees. During that time I pray Psalm 91 over all LEO’s and this prayer also:

“Lord, Be with all law enforcement officers. Keep them safe and free from harm. They are Your soldiers on the front line of the battle against evil. If one should fall this day - wrap their family in your loving arms. Surround them with Your angels, loving family, friends, neighbors and caring people to comfort them. Ease their pain. Help them to mourn well. In Jesus' name and for Your Glory, Amen.”

I know that God sends those angels to watch over our officers, sometimes to protect them and sometimes to whisk our officers into His presence.

Feel His presence as God answers the prayers of many who have fallen to their knees on your behalf. Since the day of my son's death, I have carried every law enforcement officer and their family in my heart.

I have lifted your family to God every morning for over nine years. I pray that Steven's life and death will bring glory to His name.

Trust those prayers. God is with you; He knows and will ease your pain.

Our faith helps us to see beyond the grave.

This is the most difficult time of the year for the spouses and children of lawenforcment officers lost in the line of duty. Where would we be without these heros?

We worked together in Santa Ana. We became sergeants in different L.A. offices. We met halfway and had lunch together. We both had special needs kids - he had it much harder than I can ever imagine. I said, "Steve, how do you do it?". He answered, "All you can do is love your children". It sounds so simple, but that statement had a profound effect on my life. He lives forever in my memories. I loved the man and I miss him.

Losing a CHP Officer is like losing a big brother to a CalTrans employee. Now we have one less to protect and guard us on the highways.

CHP Officers are considered as big brothers to CalTrans employees. They protect and watch over us. Now we have one less big brother.
