This is so something my guys would do…
Attention all units. This is an end-of-watch broadcast for police officer 3, Henry Lucero.
Officer Lucero, or “Hank,” as his friends called him…..was also awarded several commendations in the course of his career, including the life saving medal in 2006 for saving a 3-year-old from a burning house.
Officer Lucero recently transferred into Hollywood Division, which was his last division of assignment. He leaves behind his loving wife of 16 years, Adina, his daughter, Felicia, 13, and his 8-year-old son, Rudy.
He will be sadly missed by both his family and his LAPD family.
Officer Lucero,thank you for your commitment and your service to the citizens of Los Angeles.
And, Hank, you are now end of watch.
Thanks for being the amazing, strong woman you were. You were my favorite, my advocate, my teacher on fashion, my example of determination. You lived an amazingly FULL life, and I’m so thankful I got to spend so much quality time with you.
Love you, forever and always.
Cooper: “Ma’am, do you get a break while you’re at work?”
Cooper: “You do? You see, because we work 12-hour shifts. 12 hours. Dealing with gangsters, crackheads, rapists, all so people like yourself can sleep better at night. Just because we’re peace officers doesn’t mean we’re not entitled to a break. Or in this case, enjoying a cold treat on a very hot day like everyone else.”
Woman: “I pay your salary.”
Cooper: “You know what, ma’am, yes you do. Which means that you have actually paid for this. You want a lick?”
Amen. Sometimes, I really wish I could say something even remotely close to this when the jerks call in to complain and tell me they pay my salary. Alas, customer service is primary.
