Reflections for Patrolman Lloyd Herman Innes

Thank you for your service and please know that your sacrifice will never be forgotten. Watch over your daughter, who I see left a reflection a few years ago and is now a police officer herself, and your fellow LE brethren from above. Rest in peace always sir.

In memory of a fellow transit officer. I was in the Flushing armory Transit Police academy when the instructors told us about Officer Ennis. The incident stuck in my head for my whole police career 30 Years. I still share the story with others in our profession.
Always remember the fallen.

Thank you all for remembering my dad, my hero. My father was killed 5 months before my birth, and I've missed him my whole life. Thank you for honoring him even after 46 years.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 45th anniversary year 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 who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered. Rest In Peace

Because of the severe head injuries PO Innis suffered, he was placed on 'light duty', and thats how I got to meet him in the Operations Unit in Transit Police Headquarters. He was a very nice man, and easy to talk to.
He never gave us the details of the beating he sustained, until, one day, he appeared in the office carrying his winter uniform jacket, to go Court. It was covered in blood stains, at least a pint or more had soaked his uniform.
Once we saw that, we realized that he was truly lucky to be alive. From what I understand, many years later the psycho was paroled, he and shot and killed Lloyd.
May GOD Rest his Soul. We all suffer in his loss.

I am the son of Transit Police Captain William Bell who passed away in 2002 at age 84 yrs old. I was in the Army in 1967 when Ptl. Innes was murdered. My father was a lieutenant and the executive officer of the transit police academy at that time, however, from 1950 until 1966, he was in uniform as a patrolman and then sergeant I will never forget how distraught and angry and broken hearted my father was that one of his beloved officers was killed by such an animal. I am not such a computer guy so it's taken a while to get to here but I have done a bit of writing and never understood why Ptl Innes's story was never a major book or movie to truly depict the real line between good and bad. Ptl. Innes gave his life for law and order and a better world for all Americans. My father was a man of great character and Ptl. Innes was a hero to my father. I hope this message finds its way to a family member who will let all who loved Ptl. Innes know that he is not forgotten and still respected admired and missed in a world so in need of real heroes. p.s. my Dad's badge #443.

Patrolman Innes, the Transit Police is part of history and you are a sad part of that history. Though it isn't listed here, I feel your killer faced true justice for his vicious deplorable acts, if not in this life, then in the next.

You are a martyr for your sacrifice, but a hero for your life. Though 1967 is far behind us, on this anniversary of your death, no doubt your family, and all who knew and loved you, still feel pain, they are in my prayers.

God Bless and may you continue to Rest in Peace, Brother.

Ptlm. Innes,

Thank you for your service to the citizens of this Country. It's a shame that this subject was even out of jail to commit this horrid act. He will have to answer to a higher power now. You are a true hero and my sincere condolences go out to your family. Rest easy sir, you will not be forgotten.

A Million Times

A million times we've needed you,
A million times we've cried.
If love alone could've saved you,
You would have never died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else could ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn't go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.

~~~~~The Broken Chain~~~~~

We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name.~~In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.~~It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone; for part of us went with you, the day God called you home.~~You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.~~Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as God calls us one by one, the Chain will link again.
