  • Gone but not forgotten

    In Honor of Officer Bernard M. Bennett

    A kind and thoughtful man who took time to make the kids laugh and who had a smile who caused others to smile and not know why. He touched many lives and was liked by so many. I'm sure he is keeping the angels smiling as well.

  • Officer Lesley Zerebny

    Taken Way Too Soon

    In Honor of Officer Lesley Zerebny

    Horrible event for both of the officers. One just starting her career and the other wrapping up a long and dedicated career. Both taken during one of the must deadliest types of calls for a Police Officer. Thank you for your service and may God Bless you both.

  • Officer Gary K. McDonald

    Sister

    In Honor of Officer Gary K. McDonald

    Gary, I think of you and miss you every day. I just spoke with your son, Bryan. He misses you even though he never got to meet you. He wonders how his life would have changed if you were alive and around to guide him. He has spoken to several LAPD officers that were witness to your courage and bravery. You laid down your life for another LAPD officer. "That's what you do." I hope you are guiding and loving my son, Nathon up in heaven, and watching out for my son, Dustin who is a sergeant on the Pasadena police department. I love you Gary, I hope I will see you soon.

  • Officer Artie J. Hubbard

    In Honor of Officer Artie J. Hubbard

    I saw Officer Hubbard's name coming north today on I-5 south of Sacramento. I wondered how many people take the time to investigate the ultimate sacrifice that he and others have made. He was a hero, like all the others lost in the line of duty serving our state. God bless him, and thank you Artie for your service and sacrifice.

  • Deputy Manuel A. Ayon
