Officer Edwards,
On today, the 60th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 62nd anniversary year of your death. I am priviliged to be among the first to leave a tribute to you. 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 line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

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

I think it is terrible that the City of Logan did not take care of your family.

This Sunday (7/15/07) is the local Sheriff's Offices'commemoration of the year 1959. In that year, LCPD officer Edwin "Ted" Edwards was killed in a traffic accident while transporting juvenile prisoners.

CCSO Chief Deputy Alma Sorensen and our officer Edwards were transporting some kids to Ogden when one of them grabbed for Sorensen's gun and the car drove into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Both officers and two of the four kids were killed that August 27, 1959 on Highway 91, seven miles north of Ogden.

Deputy Sorensen had asked his officer friend and co-worker Ted to go to Ogden with him on the prisoner transport. Unfortunately, back then the City of Logan held the position that Edwards was "off-duty" and ineligible for benefits or death benefit compensation. Rumor has it that the Edwards family has never forgiven Logan for this.

Nonetheless, Edwin "Ted" Edwards died in the line of duty and we will never forget. I have no contact information for the Edwards family. If you know of someone who may be able to help, please let me know. I would welcome the opportunity to offer our respect to this man's family.

LCPD officers will join me Sunday at the Cache County Sheriff's Office flag pole at 2:00 p.m. as we pay tribute to a man who was willing to go with his co-worker on a road trip to Ogden and never made it home.

While Logan was not the most dangerous, this death is a reminder that law enforcement is a profession of sacrifices.

I never knew officer Edwards. I was with the Logan Police Department long after his death . However, we did have that thin thread of being departmental brothers, and no Law enforcement brother lost in the line of duty should be without a reflection.
