JUST CURIOUS....Here on Police Link we have a wide range of heritage, culture, diversity, and experience...just to name a few of the many positives to Police Link. I'm interested in knowing how many GENERATIONS of cops we have here. (grandfathers, fathers, sons,  - grandmothers, mothers, daughters....all should be proud to serve..and i'd like to pay tribute to you all. (Particularly those serving through family heritage).....How many generations of COPS in your family. For me: it's just me (1st generation)


It is what it is.............and.........these things too shall pass.

My dad (20+ years), mother (reserve many years off any on), brother (6 years), uncle (reserve for many years), cousin who is a motor officer (10+ years), cousin in AL (5+ years) cousin who is a police chief in TX, cousin who was killed in the line of duty Steven Dewain Morgan Long Beach PD  MS on Wednesday, May 6, 1998 (7 years), and also a best freind who was like a brother also a mentor, killed in the line of duty Terry Micheal Byrd Pascagoula PD MS March 27, 2006 (5 years). Now I am a reserve trying to make up my mind which department I want to go full time with.

Be nice. Be professional. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

Misery minus me equals humor.

I have a cousin, Tom Murphy, who is a Commander for the Palatine PD.  My brother in law is an Oak Park fireman.  Our family used to be milkmen (Wanzer,Bowman).  We'll probably change again.

I can trace the tin stars in my family back to the early 1900's...one of my ancestors was killed in the line of duty in 1919, and two more in the 40's.  My father retired as Chief of Police, my brother is currently serving, and I also have/had numerous uncles and cousins on the job.  I'm the first and only female, and the way it looks, my brother and I might very well be the last of the line to be blue.

Second generation.  My dad was in the office of Naval Intelligence at Mare Island, CA at the beginning of WW2.  From there he went into the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and was based in Sacramento, CA.  He was sent to the new Army Ordinance Depot in Herlong, CA where he then transferred into the base police [DOD Police] until he retired.  My great uncle, George Washington Lyerle was the Sheriff of Pima Co., AZ in the 1930's.

My dad was a military police officer in the Navy way back when (between WW II and Korea), then was a Special Deputy Sheriff for our county for several years prior to his death.  I was sworn for about 14 years before moving to a non-sworn position with a different agency.  My husband is LEO.  There is also a family story that my great-grandfather rode with the Texas Rangers when Frank James did the same.  I wish I knew if it was true, but sadly, he died when I was very young and there really isn't anyone to confirm or deny the tale.  SO... I choose to believe it, which makes me 3rd generation with one skipped between great-grandpa and dad.
