Trooper Garrison,
On today, the 56th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a LEO-but for our Country as well when you served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

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.

Daddy:

To this day you remain our hero, not because of the sad manner of your death, but because of the way you lived your life. Your life was, and is, a "bright symbol" for us every day. We love you--God and us.

A Tribute published in the pages of the Muncie (Indiana) Evening Press: December 16, 1959

Trooper Bob Garrison
One of Eastern Indiana's finest young men died Monday night. State Trooper Bob Garrison gave his life fulfilling a duty. Never fearful and always faithful to the highest ideals of his service, Garrison patroled the highways, roads and streets of Delaware County, working in the best interest of all of us.

One of seven state troopers in the county, Garrison had a real zest for life--a buoyance which made him a genuine friend, in the true sense of friendship. Newspapermen who knew Garrison in the line of duty respected him and loved him as a sincere and devoted police officer, and as a great and good friend.

We can sorely afford to lose young men of his character and ability. But there is a consoling thought. The memory of this fine man's life and devotion will be a bright symbol for those who carry on.

"Remember thy servant, O Lord, according to the favor which thou bearest unto thy people, and grant that, increasing in knowledge and love of thee, he may go from strength to strength, in the life of perfect service, in thy heavenly kindgom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost ever, one God, world without end."

Our Greatest Fear
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
"Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again, I hold back a tear.
They patrol in the state, city, county and town,
in uniforms colored white, green, blue and brown.
The shape of their badges may vary,
but it’s a symbol that they all, proudly carry.
They leave for work with a kiss goodbye,
but some don’t come home, no matter how hard they try.
To uphold the law is the job that they pick,
with such high aspirations, why must some die so quick?
They leave behind loved ones, family and friends,
after their lives have met tragic ends.
Some die in crashes, others hearts not too stout,
too many have been lost when gunshots ring out.
Our Heavenly Father has called them home,
no more these dark streets do they roam.
Through trial and error they have given their best,
please Lord, now grant them eternal rest.
Yet once again the Thin Blue Line is diminished,
an officer’s final tour of duty is finished.
" Officer down", it’s our greatest fear,
and once again I hold back a tear.
