To the family, colleagues and friends of Sergeant Lopez: We are so very sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. He was a brave man who was killed by a lowly coward, and the world is less safe as a result. We pray that you are comforted by the love and support of family - both blood and blue - and the knowledge that the low-life who perpetrated this evil deed will be repaid (by God and the law) what is due him.

End of Watch Tuesday, June 28, 2022.

Rest in Peace brother and watch over us. We will protect and serve from here on in your honor.

I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who can't. I fight for Justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, For I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my Honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, But tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.
