Reflections for Deputy Dennis L. Remington

Deputy Remington,
On today, the 25th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice for the citizens of Elmore County. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I miss you and think of you every day. I tell your grandkids about your Pee Wee Herman impression, your artistic abilities, your adventurous nature, & so much more. We keep in contact with Grandpa, Grandma & Uncle Mike frequently & of course exchange stories/memories. A new one they told us was about when you wanted to build all the neighborhood kids skateboard ramps, but Grandma said no because she’d be afraid a kid would get hurt. That was so you! Being thoughtful & creative. Although it’s been 23 years you still live on in my heart.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 14th 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 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

I hold your family in thought and prayer today and pray for their solace.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.

You will never be forgotten. At my home I keep a list of all the law enforcement personnel in Idaho that have lost there lives in the line of duty. I am sad when I see your name on that list even though I never knew you, I only know you as a fellow brother in blue. My fiancee and I keep you in our prayers. 10-42. I will walk a beat with you in heaven!
