Your selfless and heroic acts saved many lives and are the true definition of heroism. They resemble those actions of a Lt. Steven Floyd from the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in Delaware who was every bit the same hero as you and Officer Clutts. Rest in peace always and know that your memory, service and sacrifice will never be forgotten by your law enforcement brethren.

I knew the prisoner who murdered CO Hoffman when I was stationed at the United States Disciplinary Barracks, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. CO Hoffmann's murderer is the worst of the worst. RIP Sir, you are not forgotten.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 28th 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.

Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace. I pray for solace for your family. You were truly a hero whose selflessness and valor wee unparalled. How awful it must have been for your son, but I bet he was glad he was with you as your life on this earth ended.

I was a CO for two years before I became a police officer,and after reading this story CO Hoffmann is a prime example of what a true crime fighter is. I am very proud of him, for what he did that day in saving two other officers. God Bless him and his family.
