Reflections for Captain Cornelius N. Hendricks

Rest in peace always knowing that your sacrifice will never be forgotten.

Captain CorneliusNeal Hendricks was a brother of my great-grandmother (Williams linage). There is NOTHING on file to indicate he was ever the Chief of Police in Lexington. A trip to the Lexington Library at West Main and Limestone Southeast corner and read the reporters write up you may glimpse the sort of man "unafraid of the devil type" that he was. They had to "pass the hat" to pay for his funeral. He is interred in Section B of the Lexington Cemetery. What happened to his penniless widow was never discussed at the few family reunions. I am 93 years old. Cap'n Neal died young.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 129th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service to your community and your country. 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.

How terrible that you made it through the Civil War only to be slain as a police officer. Rest In Peace

On the 128th anniversary of Captain Hendricks' 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. Captain Hendricks is not forgotten.
