"The Final Inspection"
The policeman stood and faced his God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining.
Just as brightly as his brass.
"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My church have you been true?"
The policeman squared his shoulders and said, "No, Lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry badges can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.
But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep....
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't.....I'll understand.
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, policeman,
You've borne your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell."

Sgt. Licon, it was truly a pleasure and an honor to have gotten to know you over the last few years. I will miss the conservations we had before court and after court when I would walk with you to your motorcycle. Getting to talk to an experienced motor like yourself was an amazing experience for a newer motor like myself. You were truly one of a kind and genuinely a kind person, who would give anyone the shirt off of your back. May you Rest In Peace Sir!

I don’t think it has yet set in that I won’t be seeing you around the office anymore...or hearing “74-S1, can I get a 28 on a stop?” on your way home each night. You were truly a leader who lead by example. I remember working with you in Baldwin Park and later in Riverside when you’d always have an encouraging word for me when we’d meet at court.

I had the privelege of working with you and getting to see you in action. I remember B Watch briefings when you would talk about the daily emails you would get from ODMP and how they would be a sober reality check each time you went 10-8. Never did I think I would see your picture on this page nor feel the pain the words “End of Watch” next to your name has burned into me.

You will be sorely and tangibly missed - I can already feel how much quieter the office is without your trademark laugh.

Rest easy, 74-S1 — We have the Watch from here.

In the words of my faith:
Zichronam Livracha — May his Memory be for a Blessing.

It will be a very sad Easter season for the family of fallen California Highway Patrol Officer Steve Licon as he was killed when he was killed by a car. Not just the California Highway Patrol will be mourning but the entire State of California will be mourning as well. He leaves behind his wife, daughter and step-daughter in this time of tragedy.
