Reflections for Marshal Alonzo Theodore "Lon" Larsen

My Dad was Marshal Larsen's nephew. He named my brother. Lon, as a tribute to his Uncle Lon, Marshal Larsen.

Marshal Larsen,
On today, the 75th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Mount Pleasant. And to your Family and loved ones. I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I found this page after searching for Marshal Larsen's story after hearing his tribute in Dragnet episode 7. I listen to Dragnet all the time but this is the first time I ever looked up the officer mentioned at the end of every episode. To be honest I sort of wanted to find out whether those tributes were for real men or just names written for the show. I should have known they were real, given Jack Webb's dedication to law enforcement and realism.

But now I'm glad I've never looked up more of the officers on the tributes because having read more about this story has me crying just thinking about all the tragedies that befall the ones who try to protect their communities.

May the Larsen family be always proud of him, as am I, for doing a job that became deadly that day. And may every officer who reads this know that I thank you all especially at this awful time we are living in right now. My heart aches.

There is a dedication to this fallen officer at the end of the radio series Dragnet Episode 7 . I am a former Met Police Detective from London, UK and thought it was apt to mention it here on his memorial page.
I was fortunate to spend 34 years working with similar colleagues, gone but not forgotten. Thank you for your sacrifice.

To fully appreciate the heroes of the present, we must recognize our heroes of the past. Your heroism and service is honored today, the 68th anniversary year of your death. I am privileged to leave a tribute to you. 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.
