I proudly and unknowingly wore the shield of Patrolman Malone from 1985-1992 until I was promoted to Sergeant.. While wearing shield 5229 during those years, I served as a Police Officer in the 83rd Precinct in Bushwick Brooklyn. That shield became and still is a part of me and is something I've always cherished. How ironic and shocking it was when my future command ( MTTF, Manhattan Traffic Task Force)built and dedicated a memorial wall around 2006 or 07 and there it was PO. Patrick Malone Shield 5229 now known to me for the 1st time as a Line of Duty Death). It's like it was meant to be. I've continued to pass that wall for another 10-11 years and am now set to retire out of CTTF( the Traffic Division) on 7-31-18 after 33 years . In memory of P.O Malone as in all LOD deaths now, his shield. was permanently retired and I was unable to obtain it for my son who joined the NYPD 2 years ago and patrols the 6th Pct.( Greenwich Village) with a derivative of Mine and P.O Malones shield 5922......Anyway just thought this is all kind of interesting and it was and honor to wear 5229 for the 6 and a half years I did. RIP Patrolman Patrick Malone....

Patrick Joseph Malone was my grandfather. He was killed 6 years before I was born. His death devastated the family. He was written up in the paper as "Smiling Paddy Malone". I miss him, even though I never met him. I have several pictures of him in uniform, and have his "billy club" sitting on my desk, with a small brass tag on it with his badge number - 5229. God rest your soul grandfather - you were missed. I can provide a picture if the site would like it.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 68th 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 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.
