Yesterday we remembered the four officers who lost their lives in 2015, at the 40th Annual California Peace Officers' Memorial Ceremony in Sacramento, California. The Master of Ceremonies was Attorney General Kamala D. Harris and included guest speakers such as Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye, Governor Jerry Brown and Chief Diane Urban from the Hayward Police Department. The ceremony paid tribute to the four officers listed below and was attended by their surviving family and loved ones. For those who were unable to attend, a video of the tribute can be found here. From the staff at Cal Chiefs; our continued thoughts and prayers are with the families and agencies, we wish them all our best.
