From the Leadership
- President’s Message - June 2018
The California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony last month in Sacramento honored six officers who died in the line of duty in 2017. The names added to the over 1,500 on the memorial were Officers Keith Boyer, Andrew Camilleri Sr. and Lucas Chellew; Deputies Jason Garner, Robert Rumfelt and Bob French. As always, the ceremony was a moving event that paid respects to officers and deputies who took the oath, put the badge on and became part of the law enforcement community.
- Vice President’s Message - June 2018
Safety was top of mind as we honored our Fallen at the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Ceremony in May. This was especially so for me because I had been invited to represent PORAC at the meeting of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Officer Safety and Wellness Group in April in Washington, D.C. There, law enforcement officers, executives and support services representatives — such as the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS) and the Office of Community Oriented Policing Services — gathered to discuss officer safety and wellness.
- Treasurer’s Message - June 2018
The California Peace Officers’ and National Law Enforcement Memorial ceremonies are fresh on my mind as I write this article. As always, they are somber occasions filled with grief and sorrow from the family members, friends and colleagues over the passing of fellow peace officers. Consequently, the events are a source of reflection on the inherent dangers of our profession. Regardless how long we have been peace officers and how invincible we believe we are, the ceremonies are a solemn reminder of our own mortality.
