"I met Sergeant Ron Helus around end of 2001 beginning of 2002. I had been working as a informant for the Ventura County Sheriff's Department and the Officer I was working for was retiring he asked me to meet Officer Helus so I could continue with what I was doing for the Department. I wasn't in trouble I was doing what I was because I wanted to. I met with Officer Helus and I was happy I did. He told me he would not put me in harm's way of I didn't feel comfortable doing a buy that was ok he would find another way to get the person he said it was his job to protect the Conejo Valley and the residents and he was going to do just that and he did. You never saw him back down he was always the first one in the door when I did what I was asked to do. He always made sure I was out of harm's way first before anything and after it was all done he always asked how I was. I am so happy that I met Sergeant Helus I had not talked to him for a few years and I was going to call him the following day this tragedy happened. He was a hero to all of the Conejo Valley residents current and former as well as the world. Of you had the pleasure of meeting him he's the one person you would never forget.This man was brave he had so much courage. He had an awesome narcotics team that worked with him. I can't give my name due to what I have done for the Ventura County Sheriff's Department but I can tell you that when God created Sergeant Helus He broke the mold there will never be another one like him. He loved his wife and son so much I pray they start to heal soon its an awful feeling to loose someone. It takes a long time to heal its something you never really get over. I wish I could have seen or spoken to him again I would always tell him he would make an impression on the world and he did just that. Ron rest in peace my friend God must have needed you. You will always be #1 and America's Hero"
