End of Watch

This page is dedicated to the memory of members of the Texas Gang Investigators Association who dedicated their lives for the protection of the public and other officers.


The translation from Latin is "No one wounds me with impunity" or "No one harms me and gets away with it". The modern day meaning has been adopted by Scottish regiments and by peace officers everywhere to express their support and pledge to fallen officers and their families.

John Rocky Dyer was born on Jul 3,1962. Rocky was a long time member of TGIA, and served a variety of positions on the board.  He started as a South Region Director, moved to Vice President, and then eventually President for one term from 2005-2007.  Rocky continued to serve on the board as a Past President until his untimely passing.  Rocky was a retired member of the San Antonio Police Department and was well known throughout Texas for his work in the gang world.  Rocky never met a stranger and pushed hard to support TGIA’s mission.  In 2022 the TGIA Board approved and started the John “Rocky” Dyer Memorial Scholarship.  This scholarship is to allow people who couldn’t otherwise afford a week at TGIA to attend.  It covers their registration and hotel for the week.  Rocky would be proud to have his name associated with this.  Rocky will definitely be missed.  He was a gentle giant and some of us knew him as “The Panda” because of his big size, and gentle heart.

AJ Bonner Jr was born on October 28,1956. AJ was a long time member of TGIA and was an advisory board member for the Texas Violent Gang Task Force.  AJ served his country for 20 years in the U.S. Air Force and retired with honors. AJ started his career with the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office and moved to Hale County Sheriff’s Office, where he served honorably for 25 years, where his final rank was Chief Deputy of Facilities and Corrections.  We will miss seeing AJ’s smile around the ball room.  AJ was the definition of a public servant and he will be missed.
Detective Victor Bond

Harris County Sheriffs Department

Houston, Texas

Founding  President
Past President

Texas Gang Investigators Association

Victor Bond was born on August 22, 1951. Victor is the founding President of TGIA and served as our president from 1991-2005, when Rocky took the reins.  Rocky was the president for one term and left in 2007.  Victor was re-elected in 2007 and held the position until the conference in 2008, where he relinquished command to Ringo Deleon, our current president.  Victor continued coming and overseeing the conference every year. He had a couple episodes of bad health that kept him away, but came when his health permitted.  An obvious statement to make about him is “Without Victor Bond there would be no TGIA”.  Victor left us about 4 days before the 2022 conference, which he was planning on attending.  The TGIA Board unanimously voted to forever change the TGIA Officer of the Year award to the “Bond of Excellence”. Victor definitely deserves to be memorialized in this great association.  We will miss him.
