I was in Irma's academy class and we worked our first assignments in Brooklyn's Dist 33. Her shield # was 4721, not the one you have posted. I will remember that day always, over the radio, they called her shield # hundreds of times. Please fix the #.

I car-pooled with Irma while we were in the Transit Police Academy on 155 St. & 8 Ave. in Manhattan. She was a pleasure to work with and will never be forgotten

All of us who worked with "Fran", as we knew her, will never forget her. she was as tough as she was a beautiful girl who left us all much too soon. That day, that scene will forever be burned into my memory, I , all who knew her and the City of New York will forever miss her. R.I.P Dear Fran!

I was 14 years old when Irma was killed. I didn't know her as a NYPD officer. I knew her as a beautiful young woman who was truly a shining light to all around her. She lived in my building in NYC and to this day I remember her and still mourn her loss as tragic and hard to believe. I had only spoken to her a few times and each time was like magic for me. If you knew Irma, you knew how beautiful she was...Inside & out, kind and at the same time she was no push-over. Irma gave her life for the safety and goodwill of NYC. She truly is an NYPD ANGEL. RIP

My name is Thomas Carrera. My father Vincent T. Carrera arrested Darryl Jeter. My father died on 5/7/04. My father was so proud to be the arresting Det. on her case. As she laid in that lot he knelt down beside her and promised her he would find the person who did this to her. He then called home to say he will not be home until he found his man. after an intense investagation he found him and got a full confession. He loved Irma even though she was in heaven when he met her. We spoke of her and the case often. His ending words were always "Irma Lozada Rest in Peace"

Irma, you will live forever in the hearts every New York City cop who walks down an alley alone in search of a perp. You may have lost your own battle that day, but it could have happened to any of us. Thank you for everything you gave for the city; we can never repay you, but we will carry on the fight on your behalf. We can only hope to be as brave and poised as you were. See you at the end of tour.

I was one of "Fran's" Sergeants in District #33 when she was killed. It was my responsibility to identify her body the next day and the Bellevue Morgue. It was not only the hardest day of my was also the saddest. The memory of making this identification is forever burned into my mind but the memory of her beauty, sweet personality and dedication to duty will also stay with me forever.

We were cousins and shared a number of summers, as kids, in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. She played hide and seek with a passion, and was fierce when it was her turn to seek. It was no suprise to learn she would become a cop. We love her and miss her.

On September 21, 1984 I was assigned to the 83rd Precinct Detective Squad when Irma Lozada was killed in the line of duty. That evening I met Detective Vincent Carrera from the Transit District and was assigned to work with him on this case. After working several days with the help of all the Detectives from the 83rd Detective Unit & the Transit District, we were able to apprehend Darryl Jeter for this terrible crime, we obtained a full confession and Officer Lozada's weapon was found in Darryl Jeter's apartment. I want to say that myself and Detective Carrera became very good friends after that incident & stayed friends until his death in 2004. Irma Lozada and Vincent Carrera REST IN PEACE.
— Detective Gary Cardi

I met Irma just once in Manhattan as she was coming home from the Police Academy. We talked for maybe 10 minutes and she left such a pleasant impression that has always stayed with me to this day. Rest In Peace.

I remember this police officer very well from my high school days. I attended Brooklyn Automotive which was on the bedford ave L line.This police officer was beautiful woman. she could have easily been a model. I remember her checking train passes after school. We were tough punks back in those days,and we sometimes challanged the male cops. But this officer stood out because she was never intimidated by any of us, plus she very beautiful. She stood strong and took no crap.You dont find cops like that any more God bless her and may she rest in peace Im sorry to learn what happen to her.

On 09/21/84 I was a Probationary Police Officer being trained at the NYPD Academy on 20th street in NYC. We were in the gym doing some drills and we were suddenly told to take a seat. The instructor, Officer Washington of the Housing Authority Police Department advised us that Officer Lozada had been killed. There was total silence. I will never forget that moment. Though I never knew Officer Lozada, her death had a great impact on me. The following day, Officer Lozada's photo was on the front page of the Daily News. That evening I saw a news clip which showed people actually cheering as Officer Lozada's body was being removed from the scene! I could not believe how cruel these people were! It is now over 18 years later and I still remember this tragedy. She died so bravely, yet so viciously at the hands of a brutal murderer. Officer Lozada sacrificed her life for a community that did not appreciate her sacrifice. In addition I honor the great work of the Detectives named on this site for their great perseverance in arresting Daryl Jeter. Rest in peace, in a special place Officer Lozada. God bless you and your family. Andy Canepa

When this officer was killed in the line of duty, I was a young girl attending high school.. I would take the j train into the city and would always see her at the E.N.Y. train station on post. Her death had a big impact on me. I looked up to her, I thought she served as a great model for women. I was very saddened by the tragedy. May she rest in peace and God Bless Her.

I currently work at the 83rd Precinct which is where Irma was murdered. I did not know her but I constantly keep her in my thoughts every time I pass the area where she was assasinated. I always let the younger officers who drive me know about her sacrifice and the location where she died so that her memory will live in the next generation of MOS that pass through the Precinct. My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family.

I've been researching Officer Lozada's life as a Transit Officer and the brutal way she was murdered. I've left several reflections on After reading numerous reflections from people who knew her, I feel a kind of closeness to her. Strong, beautiful and a no nonsense type of person is what I have read. I am so sorry that she had to endure the brutality of another person's hatred but I know that she's one of God's top Leuitenants in Heaven. I never knew Officer Lozada but do know she was a loving, caring and dedicated person who makes me want to be a better person. Her life may have been cut short but she touched me as well as many other people and she accomplished alot in her life. MAY GOD BLESS OFFICER IRMA LOZADA.

I'm a writing major at the University of Tampa, and I would like to write Irma's story for my Historical Narrative and Biographies class. If you read this and you would like to contribute to my research, please email me at Any stories or information would be helpful. I think Irma deserves her story told to anyone who will hear it.

I never met P.O. Lozada, I was assigned out to the academy to TD33 almost 18 years after her tragic passing. My 1st memory of entering TD33 for my first ever tour, was the large memorial plaque and photo of her that greeted me at the door. We (new arrival rookies) were directed to suit up and wait for our FTO's in the muster room. My 1st question to my FTO was about Officer Lozada. He had worked with her and told me the entire story of her career and service leading up to the tragic day. I took Her spirit with me each and every time I went out on Patrol, God bless and rest in peace always.

I was a young rookie Officer assigned to the 30 Pct in Manhattan when PO Irma Lozada lost her life at the hands of a total dirtbag. Off-duty I attended her wake and on-duty, I was assigned to the Pct. detail for her funeral which was at the Upper West Side near her home. I will never forget the Inspector's Funeral for a true hero in every sense of the word. That year was a bad year to be a New York City Cop, because a few other cops also lost their lives to cold-hearted killers. PO Angel Negrin (Ret)

Irma was in the Transit Police Academy class that was a few months in front of my own. She earned the reputation of being a conscientious, hard charging police officer, at a time when female officers were still viewed with a little trepidation. I remember her funeral, with blocks and blocks of police officers from around the country (She was the first female officer killed in the line of duty in New York State.) All of us Transit Police Officers stood directly in front of the church. I watched as her family piled into the limousine, the plaintive strains of "Amazing Grace" played by the pipers. We saluted our slain comrade and her mother turned to us and mouthed through the glass, "God Bless you all." I couldn't contain my tears. that moment will forever be burned into my memory. I will never forget her sacrifice and every police officer, particularly every female officer, must never forget that sacrifice so many years ago. Rest easy...

I have never been on the website before, and just went on it today because of a book I read. The book called "Cops" told of a story about a first female transit cop that was killed. I wasnt sure that the stories in the book were real or not; but I know now that it was real. I am so sorry to hear about Officer Lozada's death. She was a great cop from what I have read so far. Ironically, I am now a transit cop myself. I did not know how dangerous it was to be a transit cop until I became one. I retired in 2006 from being a municipal cop in a California city and moved to the midwest and became a transit cop. I hope the public knows that dealing with the "public" especially now with the recession is so hard now. Everyone seems to have "problems" and being a cop now is soo much more dangerous. Irma, you have made me proud to be a cop. God bless you and your family forever. RIP

I became a New York State Peace Officer one year after NYPD Officer Irma Lozada tragically lost her life. Like most everyone else here in NYC, whether you were in law enforcement or simply a concerned citizen that horrible day, you couldn't help but feel a huge sense of personal loss and pain over this tragedy. I've since moved on with my life career wise. But I've never forgotten her... nor other fellow brothers and sisters who've courageously given their lives so that we can all continue to have a better quality of life. We love & miss you very much, Officer Irma Lozada. May you always R.I.P.

I was a sergeant in the Transit PD (Dist 12) when PO Lozada was brutally murdered. Although we never met, I felt a deep, personal loss as did everyone in the TPD, NYPD and law enforcement in general. I'll never forget the funeral at Holy Name Church on the upper west side, it was the largest turnout I had ever seen before or since (and tragically I have been dozens of police funerals).RIP, Irma, you truly are NYPD Angel.

I met Irma the day we were sworn in, and we had lunch together with another new recruit. I got to know her a little better while we were in the academy. I lost contact with her after graduation because I was assigned to a different command and then eventually rolled over to the NYPD. She was an incredibly smart and capable young woman with unlimited potential. I was working a 4X12 up in the Bronx when I got word of what had happened. I shed tears as I remembered her. Years later I was assigned to different commands in Brooklyn North in a variety of ranks which caused me to pass through the 83 regularly, even doing a stint in the 83 itself, over the many years that followed I would always remember her when I passed the terrible place where she lost her life way too soon. Each and every time I passed I would feel the same way as I did when I first heard that she was murdered. If she is looking down on this board and reading all the knid thoughts that people have posted I want her to know that she is always in my thoughts and prayers.

I first met fran when I was a kid. I was a member of the Guardian Angels at the time. One night I was a East New York train staion. And someone was on the tracks. I ran over and jump on to the track to get the guy. Her partner showed up and jumped in also. We picked the guy up and got him back on the platform and she took him from there. But got upset with me cause I jumped in the tracks and told me if i wanted to be useful become an auxillary then I`ll have the proper training. After she died i did exactly that and for some reason my first sheild # was 4621. Some years later I joined the Army and became an MP. I just want to say thank you Fran for telling me off and setting me straight.

I was 18 years old on a Northbound L train reading about the Murder of PO Irma Lozada as the train passed by Wilson Ave and it's a story I never forgot. As a member of District 33 every time I walk into the District I am reminded of Irma as I walk by her Memorial plaque. Irma was the First female Police officer to lose her life in the line of duty in NYC. That is why I have made it my mission to have the street in front of the Distrct named "IRMA LOZADA WAY". This in my opinion is Way Past due.It is important that we never forget this Brave Officer who gave her life protecting the citizens of this great city of ours. There is a chance that this could be accomplished sooner than later. Anyone who worked with and new Irma and any Family member of Irma interested in attending this future event please contact me at either Dist 33 or via my E-Mail. Rest In Peace Irma.

I am a former member of the NYPD that worked most of my career in the 73rd Precinct. When I first met Irma, she was a civilian employee working at the Police Academy. To meet Irma was to love her because beneath her amazing external beauty, was one of the most decent human beings I've ever met. I remember the day she was hired and how happy she was--she always wanted to be a police officer. I will never forget the day I learned of her passing and how this saddened me. To be drawn to this web site almost 30 years after her death is testimony as to how special she was and how she lives on through the people that she touched.

I can remember as it was yesterday when I first met Officer Lozada. I was a rookie cop in NSU 13. I was working a 4x12 in the 81PCI and it was very cold. I thought I would go up to the L line on Broadway and Quincy and get warm on the heaters. After a short time a train came in and no one got off. A few minutes later I heard foot steps coming down the stairs and there she was. She had the most beautiful set of red lips you ever saw. We spoke for a few minutes and when a train approach the station she left. The next thin I hear she was dead. I believe it was that spring or summer. Rest in peace your in a better place.

Officer Lozada and her partner issued me a ticket for smoking on the LL train line a few days before she was brutally murdered. I was standing between cars smoking when I seen them walking my way and opened the door for them to pass to the other car and that when they identified themselves to me. I knew I was wrong and cooperated with them fully getting my ticket. Was I happy, not really but I was wrong and got busted smoking. She was very professional and respectful to me as was her partner. I really felt bad to hear of her murder a few days later. I think of her when I see female Police officers in NYC..I hope her killer rots in prison and never see's the outside of a cell again
