I knew his story from my family and the generations of Little family. I am so proud of my great grandfather who gave his life and sacrifice to protect the life of others. I felt a great honor for his heroism and his service. My father and grandfather would be so proud of him. I always keep him in my thoughts and he's never forgotten. Rest in peace.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 102nd 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.

Rest In Peace

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. Officer Little is not forgotten.

No Officer that gave his life should be without reflection. "For those who pledge to uphold it, freedom requires a sacrifice the protected will never know."
