  • Officer Jerry S. Hatch

    In Honor of Officer Jerry S. Hatch

    I attended the Fullerton Police Academy with Jerry and he was a outstanding person and had a great sense of humor. Jerry would say the funniest things and get in trouble with the staff but always brought a smile to everyone’s face.
    I remember very well when Jerry was killed, and the entire police department struggled afterwards.
    I have nothing but the best memories of Jerry and am very happy to see the department honor him.

    He was one reasons I went to work for LASD in late 1970's as deputy sheriff. He help realize that working in the law enforcement community was the right career choice for me. His death hit me hard because I lost good friend for ever. He was so honest working with the public and was well like within LASD community. He was mentor to me.
