Your heroism and service is honored today, the 57th 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

To the family and friends of Patrolmen Joseph Norden. Most of us were not old enough to remember the fatal day Patrolmen Norden meet his fate. He did so pursuing his sworn duty to Protect and Serve the community. Just mere words , Protect and Serve but, we never forget our brother officers. A small tribute to the family of Patrol Norden. Thank you for your service. May you rest in Peace and may God continue to watch over your family.
