Patrolman Dreyer, it's now been 91 years since your murder. Though it's not indicated that your murder was caught, we can only hope that he face true justice, if not in this world, then in the next. Your actions show that you were a tough cop and a true hero.

God Bless you, Brother and may your continued rest be ever peaceful.

My in-laws live to blocks from Ashmont & Adams, today was the first time I've seen that memorial on the street sign.
Rest In Peace Brother.

I heard the reminder radio announcement a few nights ago and thought about the name, year, but tonight as I approached Adams street at Ashmont street in Dorchester I saw the plaque with his name on it .It was on the street post. It sort of hit home, I grew up on Ashmont Street.

Patrolman Dreyer, today marks the 79th anniversary of your murder. The memorial page is short and to the point. We can only speculate what became of your murderer but we can all find solace in the belief that he found true justice, if not in this life, then in the next.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today as we approach the 79th 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 who was murdered in the the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer, 75 years after you were killed.

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

Rest In Peace.
