for my dept. i print off ALL the LODD that occure and post them on our bulletin board for other officers to see, review and hopefully learn from the situation.....

for all of us who actually knew a fallen hero (LODD)....post their odmp.org listing here.

while many of us know of them, how many were actually our partners, freinds, or family......

i will start with the only one i knew personnally and have missed sorely....http://www.odmp.org/officer/14709-trooper-james-r.-gross

this incident was part of the reason i quit OSHP long ago....and went in to aviation.....it was a mistake in retrospect, but hindsight is always 20/20....ive since gone back in to L.E.

let us not forget them ever.....

Tudor,


I knew Billy....we did Civil Air Patrol together for a few years. How did you know him?

And, to keep things moving along:

Never knew him, but he was from my agency -

This next death occured fairly recently; I didn't know the guy, but several on here (some who wish to remain anonymous) did...he's from my wife's agency -

Another one that was kinda local (Southern Indiana is just across the bridge from us)...there's radio traffic available online of this shooting. I listened to it one time, and can't bring myself to do it again. The deputy got shot, and all he did was think of his coworkers running into the line of fire; he kept warning them, even as he was dying. Like I said, I can't listen to it again...too hard, even though I didn't know the guy -

Not listed on ODMP, PO2 David Moya, San Diego PD. I'll miss sharing those rolled tacos and shooting the breeze with ya on graveyards. You were quite the chick and poo-poo magnet. You would have been very proud of your boy Sammy at your funeral.

I knew Landon, but not very well. He was my old beat partner's FTO while they were both at CHP. We spoke on the phone with each other at length about lateraling to LAPD, and encouraged me to do the same.

I remember walking into the station that morning and seeing the black bands. I asked, "What happened?" All anyone could tell me was, "LAPD, in a T/A." I opened up my email and there was his name... I couldn't believe it.

Billy had just been hired full-time as a deputy when I started as a reserve and was actually the first person I ever rode with. He worked for us maybe another year or two before he left to go south. His widow also dispatched for us for a while. He was the most motivated deputy with the worst luck I've ever known. He fell off a second-story balcony in the academy and landed face-first. He also managed to get run-over by a DUI on a traffic stop and get his femur broken. I've got plenty of Billy stories if you're ever interested. He was a great guy who's still missed.
