Thoughts and Memories of Paul Gillen

We are the LAPD ! We do not leave any Men or Women behind, and we do not forget any LAPD Brother or Sister, who may have fallen in the line of duty. Commander Gillen, may Your Soul Rest-In-Peace.
Maj M. B. Parlor USMC / LAPD
I miss my father and to this day still can't believe how quickly someone can be taken from you. It has been 31 years and it seems like yesterday. He was a commander on the LAPD, had just turned 49, and was out of the line of fire. SWAT had just incorporated the helicopter in their training, and my dad was observing a training maneuver from the ground. Things looked good, but he wanted to observe from the air. One pass and the engine stalled. The craft crashed on Dad's side and he was killed instantly. Two other's were burned extensively. Dad, I love you and think of you daily. One day we'll be playing "even par" together!! Your daughter Carol
