Reflections for Sergeant Lynette Anita Hodge

I am not a police officer, but was a student at Nathan B. Young Elementary School In Opa-Locka when I had the opportunity to meet officer Hodge. She came to our school to speak to us about the dangers of using drugs. I never forgot that big bright smile and the energy she brought into the room. I really miss her after all of these years. May your soul Rest In Peace Officer Hodge

I cant believe you've been gone for almost 17 years, it seems like just yesterday we were working a VIN (Vice Intelligence and Narcotics)detail together in Opa Locka. You were ALWAYS the voice of reason keeping the "tax team" out of trouble. I think of you often and you will forever have a special place in my heart
I miss you,

Your heroism and service is honored today, the sixteenth 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.

I pray for the solace of your family. Rest In Peace

"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.

I began my Law Enforcement career in South Florida and had the honor to work with Lynette in Patrol prior to her leaving OLPD to work for NMPD. Lynette always had a smile on her face, filling the room with energy when she walked in. While at OLPD, Lynette obtained her DARE Instructor certification and was assigned to the DARE Program. She enjoyed working with the youth, sharing her wisdom and teachings.

Lynette, Gone but not forgotten. God Bless her daughter and family.
