Your heroism and service is honored today, the 28th 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.

Time never diminishes respect, and your memory will always be honored and revered.

I pray for the solace of all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my heart's embrace today.

Rest In Peace.

We had so much fun together both at Church and outside of Church. I knew you when you came to know the Lord..I remember your silly sence of humor...I remember your awesome wife Debbie even before you guy's were married. Every now and then I will see or hear something that reminds me of you and I give a little chuckle. I often think of Deb and wonder how she is doing. I would love to hear from her. You were a gentle giant...I miss you buddy...we will definately catch up on the other side..

Last night our squad stood silently on 27th Avenue and honored your memory. It has been twenty six years to the day that you answered the call and made the ultimate sacrifice. While none of us had the privilege to know you, we will never forget and you will live on in our hearts.

Dear Officer Campbell,

Here on the 25th anniversary of our loss of you in our lives, I am writing to express how your life has touched your son Adam, and in turn touched the life of my family. I have the privilege of knowing Adam through my daughter Jacque. Adam’s opinion of you speaks volumes as to the kind of man you were, and the legacy you left. I am amazed how this young man, through the efforts of your wife and family, has become the man he is today. I believe that the things said about you to him by others revealed your character to him, and those around him. That same character is represented by Adam to others. I pray that God will continue to nurture him, guide him, and guard him as he endeavors to become the man you always wanted him to be. As he enters the Navy soon, I am sure you would be so very proud of him and his brother.

I pray God’s blessings on your family, and look forward to meeting you when it is my turn to enter the gates of Heaven. Thank you for your sacrifice, and the sacrifice that your family has made.

"The Badge"
He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.
He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.
Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.
He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.
His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.
He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.
And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.
But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.
Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.
Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.
So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.
In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.
Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
