27 years ago today you did not swerve from your oath and duty to serve. You gave your life in defense of the peaceful from the violent. Today, as in every year since your death, the GPD, LASD-San Dimas and community pauses at your Via Verde memorial parklet to honor your memory and sacrifice. You were a great cop and friend.

27 years have passed since you stood up to evil to defend the peaceful from violence. GPD, LASD-San Dimas and the community gathered at your memorial parklet in Via Verde this morning, as we do every year at this time, to honor your memory and sacrifice. I happened to get a message from Shelia G. just two months ago and during our brief messaging she shared how much she appreciated, as an adult now more than then, the help and mentoring she received from you. I was part of the lucky few who got to work with you and call you friend. God Bless.

Louie, Louie, Louie bless your heart for your indomitable courage . Anyone that knew you would expect nothing less. God, has it been that long? When John Doan called our collective hearts broke. You had all the promise to be be an amazing LOE. What a waste of talent and potential.

Agent Pompei,
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 Glendora. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

Dear Officer Pompei,
I first heard of you when I was sitting in my academy class for LASD. I went home that day and did some research on you. What I found was truly amazing. Nothing but great things can be found about your life and character. You were a hard worker and truly gave it your all everyday when you went to work. Friends and family mention how you had great personality on and off duty. For example, they mentioned how you treated everybody you met with respect, even those who were guilty of a crime. You had such a great impact on the community you worked for. People that you arrested, would send you letters, and thanked you for being so respectful and helping them straighten out their lives so they can be better people.
You truly lived up to the code of law enforcement. You were sworn to protect and serve the people in Glendora, while on duty or off duty. On the day of your death, while you were off duty, you stepped in and helped the citizens of Glendora when they were being assaulted by two individuals. Knowing the risks of identifying yourself as a peace officer, you still decided to help those in need even though it meant losing your life. Sir, all I want to say is that your courage and sacrifice will not be forgotten. Thank you for everything you did, you truly had dedication to the job and was willing to sacrifice your life for others. Your story has truly touched and motivated me. Even though I am currently a recruit, I aim to be just like you. I want to become a Deputy and help those in need and hopefully make a difference in peoples lives just like you did. I will live up to the code of Law Enforcement and become a better Deputy on and off duty every day. I believe every recruit should read you story and learn how a peace officer should be on or off duty and try every day to be the best they can be. Again thank you for everything you did Officer Pompei.

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have are memories and a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake, from which I'll never part.
God has you in his arms. I have you in my heart

June 9th, 20 years ago. I still feel the pain in my heart, you will always be remembered. xoxo
