#LASD IS PROUD TO ATTEND THE SO CAL CALIFORNIA PEACE OFFICERS’ MEMORIAL
#LASD is proud to attend the So Cal California Peace Officers’ Memorial 2019 in Sacramento this week, along with many of our SoCal law enforcement partners to honor those who have fallen. Last Night, in Sacramento for the California Peace Officers Memorial, we stood in unison, collectively, to show dedication to the memory of those who have fallen.
The candles in our hands act as symbols; their light reminding us the spirit of our fellow fallen brothers and sisters will always shine bright, even in darkness. The California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremonies are held the first week of May on the State Capitol grounds, at the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Monument in Sacramento. They serve to formally enroll peace officers who have died in the line of duty the preceding year, pay tribute to the over 1500 officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice since California became a state in 1850, and to honor the families left behind.
This year’s honorees are: Deputy Steven E. Belanger Los Angeles Co. Sheriff’s Department EOW: Feb 06, 2018 Officer Greggory Casillas Pomona Police Department EOW: Mar 09, 2018 Deputy Sheriff Ryan Zirkle Marin County Sheriff’s Office EOW: Mar 15, 2018 Officer Kirk Griess CHP – Solano Area Office EOW: Aug 10, 2018 Deputy Mark Stasyuk Sacramento Co. Sheriff’s Department EOW: Sep 17, 2018 Sergeant Ron Helus Ventura Co. Sheriff’s Office EOW: Nov 08, 2018 Deputy Tony Hinostroza III Stanislaus Co. Sheriff’s Department EOW: Nov 25, 2018 Corporal Ronil Singh Newman Police Department EOW: Dec 26, 2018
Today, we at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department gather in the state’s Capitol to honor those fallen members of our beloved profession. They have paid the ultimate sacrifice ‘their lives’ in the service of others. We stand together to call their names for the world to hear during the 2019 California Peace Officer’s Memorial Enrollment Ceremony.
