Reflections for Trooper Joseph Emanuel Dillard

Rest in peace always and know that your service and sacrifice will never, ever be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 46th 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
