What policeman Oscar Joel Bryant did on that fateful day, is what every Christian ought to be willing to do. But to be willing to lay down their life for the cause of Christ. This is what Heralds are willing to do with the glorious Gospel. Thank you LAPD Media Relations Division for your videos.
When I first heard about this on the news, I thought of myself. I thought the only difference between Verduzco and myself, is Verduzco got caught. I thought of myself as a young 27 year old Los Angeles police officer, who loved his alcohol, and revelry. Like many other police officers, I was a worldly
Today I enjoyed attending this ceremony, honoring LA’s finest that have died in the line of duty. Once the ceremony was complete, and the officers, families and friends were dismissed, I began distributing my IPOC Gospel tracts. Out of the many dozens of police funerals and memorials that I’ve attended over the decades, in almost
This video brings much sentimental value. I served on the LAPD Honor Guard detail, where I performed the 21-gun salute, and U.S. flag folds at funerals, as well as various other details and presentations at VIP events. One day when I pass, these honors will be extended to my next of kin on my behalf.
This video brings much sentimental value. I served on the LAPD Honor Guard detail, where I performed the 21-gun salute, and U.S. flag folds at funerals, as well as various other details and presentations at VIP events.

I was one of the first officers to use dash cams in a police vehicle. That almost makes me a dinosaur.
Last week I attended a luncheon in Los Angeles for the Old LAPD Centurions. This was my first time meeting with this particular group of LAPD veterans. The undisclosed restaurant that hosted us, is one that I used to eat at as a police officer (code-7). To my surprise as soon as I sat down,
Yesterday I responded to an invitation to an annual Bar-B-Que for retired Los Angeles Police Officers, and Fire Department personnel. While driving to Los Angeles, so that I would maximize my effectiveness, I prayed specifically for ‘timing, and logistics.’ In other words, how does one guy cover so many, without missing a soul, or duplicating
Police Officer’s Death Investigations – a Theological Perspective Warning: This article is Rated ‘R’ for graphic content, viewer discretion is advised. In law enforcement I investigated with corpus delicti in mind. Then as a private investigator building a case for habious corpus. But as a theologian all that matters is the knowledge and faith in
Note: The tracts were distributed ‘before and after’ the actual ceremony. All conversations were removed. On this great day of the Lord I had the privilege of evangelizing this historical Los Angeles police event. My goal was to get a Gospel tract into as many hands as possible. By the grace and providence of the
With all the controversy regarding law enforcement, what they need is the Gospel. Though I failed in giving a complete presentation of the Gospel, I tried. I have various other videos of other police outreaches on the IPOC web site. “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power
