Reflections for Policeman Joseph English Daniels

Officer Daniels was my mother's uncle, and she had very fond memories of him. According to my mother, Officer Daniels was killed when he was directing traffic on foot, and a vehicle committed a traffic violation in front of him. As he was writing a citation, the vehicle was hit or side-swiped by another car, fatally injuring Officer Daniels. According to my mom, he survived earlier in his career getting shot in the hand by an armed robber. He was a Nebraska native that enjoyed being with the LAPD!

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 68th 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.

Rest In Peace

Officer Daniels you served before many of us were alive. You helped hold the "thin Blue Line" before it was known that way. WE thank you and will remember you.
