VIDEO & PHOTOS: Lakewood Police Department Unveils Historic Memorial Car [EXCLUSIVE]

In an effort to remember all of Lakewood’s fallen police officers, Shrage Pinter decided to dedicate a vehicle in their memory.

Mr. Pinter invited Police Chief Greg Meyer and some friends to attend an unveiling of the historic 1941 Oldsmobile vehicle, which will be used for police ceremonies and memorials. The car may also be displayed downtown at times for residents to see.

“We are touched by this special gesture by Mr. Pinter and the time and work he put in to make this happen,” says Chief Greg Meyer. “It’s a beautiful way to keep the memories of our late officers alive. I have no doubt the families will find this extremely meaningful, and the vehicle will become a favorite in the Lakewood Police Department’s history.”

Mr. Pinter tells TLS he always wanted to do something for the officers and their families, and he felt this would be a great way to keep their memories alive.

“A picture is worth a thousand words, but a memory is priceless,” Pinter said. “That’s why we made this memorial car with the name of all the honorable officers who served the Lakewood Community with dignity.”

  1. aside from the new markings and emblems on this car, is there any historical connection of this specific 1941 vehicle to LW police?

    I did not understand the connection from reading this article. Thank you.

  2. Very nice gesture on the part of Mr. Pinter. What is the criteria to have a deceased officer’s name on the car? Unfortunately, there are many names of Lakewood’s finest who are no longer with us missing from either door panel. Some of them still have family members in the Lakewood area.

  3. Hi Jack,
    There were many officers who served LPD over the years who have been forgotten. I’m sure their names are available from the LPD or from some of the senior officers still serving. Here are 10 names that I can remember:
    Charles Lowe # 105, Ronald Patterson # 144, Lenny Smith # 021, Wayne |LeCompte #003, John Marshall Sr., Bernard Gindoff, D.D. Burdge, Donald Smoke, Brent Braisted, & Edward Taylor.
