Your heroism and service is honored today, the 52nd 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 45th anniversary of Officer Ellis' death, we honored his service in our patrol briefing 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. Officer Ellis is not forgotten.

Officer Ellis,

God Bless you. As an Explorer, I can not wait to be able to shine the memorial fountain at the academy. As it is the anniversary, I would love to be doing it today. God bless you and your fallen brothers and sisters of the CHP and all other agencies

Officer Ellis has NEVER been forgotten by his CHP family. All cadets have the honor of maintaining the academy memorial and that includes polishing the name plates of our brothers and sisters that have given their lives to Safety & Service. That is how WE never forget !! God bless you John
