Asian Journal/Inquirer.Net, Posted: Jul 29, 2009

SAN FRANCISCO -- A memorial service befitting a hero memorialized Filipino-American Tomasito "Nick" Birco Jr., an officer of the San Francisco Police Department, on the third anniversary of his death. The Birco family received a plaque of honor at the Bayview Police Department on July 26 from the SF Police Department, which Birco served for five years. The SF FilAm Police Officers Association, organized right after Bircos death, announced the formation of a scholarship program for young people studying law enforcement. Birco was killed in a vehicular pursuit of robbery suspects. He was 39 years old. The suspects were arrested and charged with murder and manslaughter, among other charges. Birco served in United States Marine Corps and was a veteran of Operation Desert Storm in the Persian Gulf before he joined the SF Police Department.
