Reflections for Officer Lloyd Marland Lund

Brother I can only tell you how sorry I am that you lost your life will probably doing one of the most loved things that you did in life, riding your Harley Davidson. I too was on motors in Long Beach for quite a while best job I ever had. The restaurant your family opened up is doing great and we miss you a-lot God bless you brother. See you when I get up there.

Even though we have the same name, we are not related in the blood sense, however we are family because of the profession that we share. RIP Officer Lund, you will never be forgotten.

In a totally random meeting while on a quick get away out of town, I met the guy who owns one of my favorite restaurants that serves one of my favorite dishes. In talking to him, he's wearing a Long Beach PD ring, and he tells me the story of his father, who was a Long Beach PD officer, killed in the line of duty (Officer Lloyd Lund.) It's crazy how life goes round and round to connect the dots of people, places, and events. To this, I say thank you to Officer Lund for his service, and offer my condolences to his family some 35 years later.

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.

Rest In Peace

"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.

May you rest in peace Lloyd. I never met you but had heard of a Motor Officer who was killed on the freeway due to high winds. I know you did not lose your life in vain. Because of your sacrifice myself and other motor officers would take a unit for our safty when the winds start to blow.

Well Lloyd, it's been a very long time but I think of you often. I will never forget our strong friendship and being the 2nd guy to move to Lake Forest after you. It was always a bond we had along with many other things. Many other officers followed us out there but you were the pioneer. I had left the department at the time you left us but your memory will always be with me.
I am also reminded of you every time I ride my motorcycle and it reminds me of the training rides I went on with the LB motor officers. I have a large picture of the motor squad taken at the Port of Long Beach mounted and framed on my office wall so I remember you and many other good friends and fellow officers that have left us. Rest in peace.
