Sheriff Sergeant recieves “Bullfrog Award” for leadership. 

The “Bullfrog Award” was created in February 2024 and was funded by the Professional Peace Officers Association (PPOA). Retired LASD Tactics and Survival Deputy Alonzo Corral designed it. 

The first ever bullfrog award was presented by Retired LASD Detective Tania Owen, wife of Sergeant Steve Owen, to Sergeant Darell Edwards of East Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station. 

The award was created in honor of Sergeant Steve Owen, who was protecting the community when a burglar murdered him on October 5, 2016. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Lancaster Sheriff’s Station personnel,  and the Antelope Valley community lost an esteemed supervisor, a community pillar, and a beloved friend that tragic day. 

Sergeant Steve Owen had the nickname “Bullfrog,” given to him by his team at Lancaster Sheriff’s Station. It is a “Leadership” award given to the newly promoted sergeant who demonstrates leadership values, participates in class, and displays the overall ability to be a leader even amongst his peers.
 
Only LASD peers within supervisory school are allowed to vote for this distinct honor. On Wednesday, April 17, 2024, Deputy Paul Mendez who was a former deputy of Sgt. Steve Owen, Shannon Owen, daughter of Sgt Steve Owen, and Sgt. Steven Sully from Advanced Officer Training presented the award to Sgt. Dennis Elmore from Lakewood Sheriff’s Station. 

We congratulate Sgt. Dennis Elmore for receiving this prestigious award and wish him well as he embarks on an important responsibility and role as a newly promoted sergeant for our department. #leadership #LASD

We know what today is, and LASD wants to remind everyone that driving under the influence doesn’t always mean alcohol, it includes any impairment due to illicit drugs, OTC medications, prescribed medications and marijuana (medicinal or recreational). 

While smoking marijuana is permitted in a private home or at a business licensed for on-site marijuana consumption, ingesting or being under the influence of marijuana remains illegal while driving a vehicle.

California Highway Patrol estimates the cost of a DUI offense at approximately $13,500. 

According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, people who drive immediately after using marijuana may increase their risk of getting into a crash by 25 to 35 percent because studies show that driving while under the influence of marijuana negatively impacts attentiveness, perception of time and speed and your memory. Impaired memory can affect the ability to draw from past driving experiences, especially in emergency situations. In 2021, over half (52.9%) of all drivers who were tested after being killed in motor vehicle crashes were found to have tested positive for either legal or illegal drugs.
