On behalf of Richmond PD we thank you for your service and the life that you gave to protect and honor ours.

In May of 2008 a memorial at the police department was dedicated in honor of all of our fallen heroes. We encourage friends and family to pay us a visit any time.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

Rest in peace, Sir! You are not foroggte.

Police Officer

October 24, 2006

To the family and friends of Officer Ronald Fuller, the Richmond Police Department, and most especially to Patrolman Fuller:

It has been twenty-one years since your death, but you are not forgotten. Your valor will be forever remembered and honored. How very sad that you had to die under such tragic circumstances.

It must have been a terrible blow to your department to lose two officers in such a devasting aircraft accident.

This reflection is sent with the utmost respect for the service you gave to the community of Richmaond and the citizens of California, and for the supreme sacrifice you and your family made on July 5, 1984 in the line of duty.
Rest In Peace.
