I will forever be connected to Officer Joe Dean because of a incident that I was involved in while working as a Police Officer for the El Reno Police Department in 1975.
I am retired from the Edmond Police Department now, but I remember the night in El Reno like it was yesterday. I can reflect about the memory of Officer Joe Dean and that sometimes there is justice for a slain police officer, although, I didn't know it on that fateful night in 1975.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 41rst 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

On the 39th anniversary of Patrolman Dean’s death, we honored his service during roll call by reading his entry from ODMP. Each day, we honor one fallen officer on the anniversary of their death so as to keep them in our thoughts, and also to remind us of the dangers inherent in our job.

Patrolman Dean may be gone, but is not forgotten.

At least the young suspect did not live, but unfortunately you had to suffer a violent death. Maybe more should have been done to his family members for their actions! Thank you, sir, for your courageous attempt to apprehend the suspect, and thank you for your short time in service to the Clinton Police Department.
