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

A VOICE HAS BEEN SILENCED
BY: CHARLES G. TURNER, SR.

TODAY OUR HEARTS ARE HEAVY WITH PAIN
BECAUSE OF THE SORROW HURT AND DISDAIN
A VOICE HAS BEEN SILENCED FROM THIS LAND
AND NOW WE HAVE TO PUT THIS GRIEF IN GOD'S HAND

FOR THIS LOSS WE WONDER WHY
AS WE PRAY MOURN AND CRY
IT IS HARD FOR THE MOTHER WHO GAVE BIRTH
TO NO LONGER SEE HER CHILD'S FACE OR HEAR HER CHILD'S VOICE
BECAUSE HER CHILD HAS BEEN SUDDENLY TAKEN FROM THIS EARTH
IT IS HARD FOR THAT FATHER WHO HAS ALSO GUIDED HIS CHILD'S HAND
AND NOW SUDDENLY HIS CHILD WILL NO LONGER WALK OR TALK ON THIS LAND

TO THE WIVES , LOVED ONES AND FRIENDS
WHOSE FAMILY MEMBERS HAVE SUDDENLY COME TO AN ABRUPT END
AS THE DAYS PASS AND WE CONTINUE TO SURVIVE
WE HAVE TO STRUGGLE TO KEEP THEIR MEMORIES ALIVE
AS WE ALL BAND TOGETHER AND HOLD TO GOD'S POWERFUL HAND
WE MUST KEEP THE SPECIAL MEMORIES OF THOSE WHO WE WILL NO LONGER HEAR LAUGH, SEE THEIR SMILES OR HEAR THEM CRY
AND FOR WHAT REASON WE WILL NEVER KNOW WHYTHESE BEAUTIFUL SOULS HAVE BEEN TAKEN FROM THIS LAND
WE HAVE TO TAKE THIS TO GOD IN PRAYER CAUSE HE WILL TRULY UNDERSTAND
WHY THESE VOICES HAVE BEEN SILENCED AND HAVE NOW JOINED THE HEAVENLY BAND

Prevent The Fallen Hero
(to those who risk their lives daily for us)

Everyday as they get ready for work,
they push aside the possibility that they may not make it home.
Everyday as they walk out that door,
they try to reassure their family that they will be coming home.

When they put on that vest,
they pray that it will serve its purpose if it is needed.
When they put on that belt,
they pray that nothing on it will fail upon use.

When they pull up to a house or building,
they pray that everything will be routine. No surprises.
When they pull over that vehicle on the road,
they pray that everything will be routine. No surprises.

Cowardliness results in surprises.
Surprises cause injuries.
Ignorance and fear results in surprises.
Surprises take lives.

Everyday as they get ready for work,
they push aside the possibility that they may not make it home.
Everyday as they walk out that door,
they try to reassure their family that they will be coming home.

When they put on that vest,
pray that it will not have to be put to use.
When they put on that belt,
pray that they don't need to use anything on it.

Honesty and integrity prevents surprises.
Surprises can cause injuries.
Honour and respect prevents surprises.
Surprises can take lives.
